The operator of a boat has the same responsibility to his or her passengers as that of the operator of a motor vehicle.  Unfortunately, many people do not realize how dangerous it can be to manage a water craft. Types of boating accidents include collisions with other boats or fixed objects, falls overboard, and water skiing mishaps.

According to the United States Coast Guard, the most common causes of recreational boating accidents are alcohol use, inexperience, operator inattention, and reckless operation.

The negligent operation of a boat can result in head injuries, lacerations, neck and back injuries, and wrongful death. If you or someone you know has been injured on a boat due to the negligence of its operator you may entitled to compensation. Do not delay.

As with all personal injury matters, boating accident cases are accepted on a contingent fee basis which means that there is no up front cost to you. Further, there is no fee at all in boating accident cases unless and until we are successful in obtaining a settlement or judgment for you.  If you are unable, due to your injuries, to travel to one of our offices, Attorney Dorn will travel to your home to discuss your case with you.
