Handling a Wide Range of Boating Cases in Massachusetts
Our attorneys have a wealth of experience in personal injury law and a proven record of success. In boat accident cases, we often work with accident reconstructionists, medical experts and other professionals who can help build a strong case. Our thorough preparation often results in favorable settlements with insurance companies and other liable parties. When settlement is not possible, however, we are always ready to stand up for a client’s rights in court.
We handle claims related to boats, Jet Skis and other watercraft, including:
- Water-skiing accidents
- Personal watercraft accidents
- Sailboat accidents
- Overcrowded boats
- Speeding and other violations of Massachusetts boating laws
- Lack of flotation devices or life jackets

When Drinking Is Involved in Boating Crashes
Unfortunately, too many people drink while operating a motorboat on our lakes, rivers, even the ocean. Skiing injuries, collisions, even drowning have all occurred as a result of drunk drivers on our waterways.
The fact that a driver was drunk does not lessen his or her responsibility. In fact, these cases often involve criminal charges as well as a civil lawsuit. If someone who was operating a boat while under the influence injured you, we will work hard to hold the driver accountable and get you the compensation you need.
