Accidents on the Water / Boating
Ohio Lawyers Handling Boating Accidents and Maritime Injuries
Boating accidents on Lake Erie and in other bodies of water in northern Ohio often result in serious maritime injuries including the following:
- Traumatic head injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Internal injuries
At the law office of Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A. in Sandusky, Ohio, our attorneys represent victims of accidents resulting from recreational boating, commercial shipping and personal watercraft (jet ski) usage on waterways including the following.
- Lake Erie
- Sandusky Bay
- Kelley's Island
- The Sandusky River
- The Maumee River
- The Cuyahoga River
Often, there is an element of alcohol use in boating accidents that cause catastrophic injuries. Dram shop liability may offer additional sources of compensation if a marina pub served an obviously inebriated boater beer or wine before a serious boating accident.
Other factors that may have contributed to or caused a boating accident include the following:
- Lack of proper navigation lights on a boat
- Lack of training by a boater
The attorneys at Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A, represent clients who have been injured through no fault of their own. One of our primary practice areas is devoted to representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases.
In our initial meeting, we will discuss your case and determine possible ways to find proper compensation for losses and injuries. For example, if the person who hit your boat was uninsured or underinsured, your own homeowner's policy may cover your accident. Contact a boating accident lawyer at the law office of Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A. today to discuss your or your family member's maritime injuries.
