Injuries sustained by a boat accident

Some injuries that can occur in a boating accident include hip fractures, bone fractures, disc bulging, concussions, brain injury, spinal cord injury, chronic pain, burns, head trauma, broken or sprained ankles, broken or sprained arms, wrists or hands, and more. Of these, head trauma is the most severe, and any head injury should be properly examined by a medical professional immediately.

Compensation in a Boat Accident Case

Am I entitled to receive an Accident Benefits settlement?

Being injured in a boat accident is traumatic.  Holding the negligent individual responsible for your injuries and damages can be a confusing process.  As a passenger in a boat or vessel, there are several areas of damages that you may be eligible to be compensated for.  Some of these damages may include:

  • Medical expenses, such as ambulance rides, hospital stays, doctors’ examinations, medication, and physical therapy
  • Medical equipment required
  • Lost employment wages
  • Loss of future income due to limits on your earing ability
  • Pain and suffering

Contacting the right Boat accident injury lawyer is important because an experienced bicycle accident lawyer will be able to get you the compensation that you deserve. 

Dealing with your loss of income due to time taken off work and potentially dealing with the stress of any long-term disabilities which may affect you post accident, is difficult enough.

If you are injured on a boat, you may experience pain at varying times after the accident, therefore it is important that you outline all of your symptoms to your medical physician, such as physical and psychological symptoms that may be affecting you. Sometimes a critical injury from an accident may not be apparent immediately after the accident, and oftentimes a person will experience injuries such as brain injuries days or weeks following the car accident.  Multiple medical appointments may be necessary in order to outline to your doctor all of your symptoms wholly. 

At Scardicchio Law Office Professional Corporation, our Boat accident injury lawyers will evaluate every aspect of your injury claim and work hard to recover the most compensation that you case is worth. 

Liability in a Boat Accident Case

Liability is an issue that arises in boat accident injury claims.  Liability is concerned with whether the other person, or usually a driver, was negligent or reckless and is ultimately responsible for causing the accident.  It is important to gather all the information of any witnesses at the scene as well as details of the other driver’s license plate, driver’s license, name and address. In the case of a vessel, take down passenger information and witnesses names and identification.  Taking a photograph of the scene of the accident, your vessel, your injuries, etc. is advisable to assist in getting a well-rounded perspective of the damage and injury that was caused. If your injury is so severe that you require an ambulance to transport you to the hospital, then there are usually police officers who will take down witness statements and ascertain the scope of how the accident occurred, or what others witnessed.

It is important that any accident victims in a boat crash get the help they need by contacting our experienced boat accident injury lawyers at Scardicchio Law Office Professional Corporation.  We have the resources to see your case to completion.
