Who Is Responsible for Your Injuries in a Boating Accident?

To recover the total amount of eligible compensation for your claim, our professional team at the Kuzmich Law Firm, P.C. will evaluate all potentially responsible parties. While you may initially believe there is only one liable party, numerous individuals may be accountable for your damages. It is often difficult to determine who was operating the other boat.  

Alcohol use while boating on Lewisville, Ray Roberts, and other area lakes is very common and is often the major factor leading to injuries and death. Both lakes have alcohol-serving restaurants and bars on the lake that you can pull your boat up to. 

Determining the at-fault parties involved in your accident requires extensive experience and a thorough understanding of boating accidents. When you partner with our Kuzmich Law Firm, P.C. team, you gain our vast network of expert connections who may work to reconstruct your accident and identify all potentially liable parties. Regardless of the responsible party, we will pursue the best possible outcome for your claim.

While calculating the total potential recoverable damages requires our team to investigate your specific situation, the following are a few examples of damages you may be able to recover in a boating accident claim:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Prescription medication costs
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation bills
  • Physical impairment
  • Past and future lost income or wages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Anxiety and depression

Many individuals feel unsure about whether or not they should file a boating accident claim, regardless of who is at fault. While our team understands these emotions, consider speaking with us about your situation before you dismiss your claim and damages.
