Experience Proving Liability and Damages in Boating Accidents

- Maritime law — including federal and state rules governing navigable waterways;
- What constitutes actionable negligence in a setting where right of way might be less than clear;
- Investigation of boating and jet ski collisions and other accidents, which often require recovery teams and specialized maritime knowledge and understanding;
- Investigators who can develop evidence of excessive speed or other types of recklessness; and,
- Issues of proper operator training, caution and experience on the water that often play into boating and watercraft personal injury cases.
