Michigan Boating Accident Lawyers
Serving Boating Accident Victims in Michigan & Nationwide
As the popularity of recreational boating increases, so too does the number of injuries and fatalities from boating accidents. In 2015, the U.S. Coast Guard reported over 4,000 recreational boating accidents, resulting in 626 deaths, 2,613 injuries and approximately $42 million in property damage. The majority of these accidents could have been avoided.
When boating accidents are the result of negligence, vessel owners, rental companies, and other boat pilots can be held responsible for the damage. More importantly, they can be made responsible for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
