Boating Accident Attorney in Orange County

Boating accident is one type of personal injury accident that, although not usually reported, does not mean that it's not a serious personal injury accident that causes devastation to the victims and the families involved. The usual causes of boating accidents are due to recreational boating activities, especially in California where there are a lot of bodies of water and water activities are very popular. A boating accident victim, whether due to human error or negligence, poor maintenance of boats or defective production or construction of boats, can suffer a number of bodily injuries, from cuts, scrapes, bruises or contusions to spine injuries, fractures, head injuries or brain injuries. There are also some who are unfortunate to be fatally injured, suffering wrongful death, either due to a bad fall inside the boat or tragically impaled inside the boat or seriously wounded by boat propellers. If you or any of your loved ones suffer bodily injuries due to boat accidents in Orange County, you should immediately seek advice from top boating accident attorneys in order to be protected against any types of machinations that will make you either diminish or lose your valid boating accident claims.

What To Do after Boat Accidents?

There is no debate that negotiating with the other party for your own boating accident claims is the worst thing you can do to your case. However, this does not mean that you are helpless in doing something to help pursue your boating accident case. OC Injury Defenders's expert boating accident lawyers in California have been handling boating accident claims for two decades now and because of this, we are able to formulate pointers that every boating accident victim should do after a boating accident to help protect their claims, which include:

  • 1. Gathering of Evidence - by taking pictures of the scene of the accident and the part of the boat involved, getting information of the insurance of the other party, requesting copies of CCTVs and requesting for information from possible witnesses;
  • 2. Getting Medical Treatments - by calling paramedics or immediately going to emergency clinics to get proper evaluations and treatments;
  • 3. Tracking Out-of-Pocket Expenses - which is done by making sure that you keep receipts of out-of-pocket expenses from buying medicines, medical supplies, obtaining transportation to go to and from treatments; and
  • Getting Employment Certification - by requesting your employer to provide you with signed certification showing the actual loss of earnings you suffered due to absences and under time in order to go to treatments or do home exercises.

Why Should I Hire the Best Boating Accident Attorneys?

Statistics show that at least 80% of boating accidents are caused by boat operator errors. This does not mean that it only happens to commercial or recreational boat operators. Your friend can also cause the boating accident by mishandling the boat that you are in or due to just plain inexperience. In any event, whether you are injured due to boating operator error by your friend or by an employee of a commercial or recreational boat, you should be aware that you have a right against the party at fault to claim damages. However, pursuing and successfully winning your boating accident claims are two different things. Especially in cases of commercial boating accidents where the boating operator and/or owner will definitely do everything to relieve them of liability, you should be wary of negotiating your claims on your own or hiring ordinary personal injury lawyer to represent you. Boating industry is regulated by federal and state laws and, therefore, the laws and processes involved in pursuing your boating accident claim is clearly complex. These matters should best be left to best boating accident attorneys in Orange County who are very familiar in all laws, rules and regulations affecting local and transnational boating industries. As a victim of boating accident, you will definitely need medical treatments which can reach in the hundreds of thousands depending on the seriousness of the accident and your bodily injuries. Hence, in order to be able to afford proper and complete treatments, you need to make sure that you make the parties at fault pay for your property damage, bodily injuries, pain and suffering and other losses.
