Making Sense Of Your Rights After A Boat Accident

New York's coasts, lakes, rivers and harbors are heavily used for both commerce and leisure. Just like roads and highways, however, these waterways can be the scene of life-altering accidents involving:

  • Ferries
  • Fishing boats
  • Speedboats
  • Personal watercraft (Jet Skis)
  • Barges
  • Tugboats
  • Cruise ships
  • Sailboats
  • Canoes
  • Kayaks

From a legal standpoint, boating accidents are often complicated. Depending on where the accident occurred, your rights to compensation might fall under state law or federal maritime law. It takes an experienced personal injury lawyer to evaluate these claims.
