Hurt on a Boat? You May Be Eligible for Compensation.

by Staff Blogger | July 3rd, 2018

Boating is a fun recreational activity that can quickly become dangerous when operators are distracted, reckless, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

At Cofman Townsley, our St. Louis boat accident lawyers are here to help anyone who was hurt in a boat accident. Like car and truck accidents, boat accidents have the potential to cause serious and disabling injuries, and some victims may even experience life-threatening injuries.

When those injuries occur due to someone else’s negligence, victims deserve the opportunity to pursue compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

If you or someone you love were hurt in a boat accident through no fault of your own, you shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for your own accident-related expenses. When you choose us to handle your case, you can count on us to:

  • Prove the accident was preventable—Whether the operator of the boat you were on failed to uphold his or her duty, or your accident was caused by the operator of another vessel, our attorneys can find out who was responsible and hold them liable for your injuries.
  • Calculate how much the accident will cost you—Between medical bills and lost wages, boat accident victims may experience serious financial hardships. We’ll determine exactly how much your injuries will cost you now and in the future, and we’ll negotiate to get you maximum compensation.

Don’t let a day of summer fun turn into a lifetime of hardship. Contact us today—our legal team is ready to put their experience to work for you and your family.
