Boating Accidents

While rare, boating accidents occur regularly and often lead to severe injuries

There are more boats per capita in Washington State than anywhere else in the U.S. With their popularity comes inevitable boating accidents, sometimes fatal.

A boating collision is uniquely dangerous because in addition to the potential for serious injury, boat passengers are often subjected to being thrown from the vessel and drowned. Boating collisions involving drunk boaters are also common.

With our extensive experience working with clients injured in boating accidents, we possess a huge advantage. We know what our clients will be facing as they move towards recovery, we know how to build complete and compelling claims, and we know how the insurance companies will respond.

Which type of visitor are you?

The injury attorneys at Brett McCandlis & Brown have worked with hundreds of clients, and most fall into one of these four groups. Each type of client needs special support, and each has a different set of interests and concerns.

What does a successful boating-accident claim look like?

When a Brett Law boating-accident client is suffering from injuries caused by a negligent boater, we take special steps to identify the extent of their injuries and damages, and to determine how the collision affects our client's life, now and in the future. Many injuries require long-term, costly medical care, and we ensure that this cost is fully factored into the insurance-claim process. A successful claim is one in which our client receives a settlement or verdict that enables them to fully recover financially, and compensates them for their current and future losses.

Helping clients heal is our job, and we are very, very good at our job.
