An Overview of Boat Accidents

The single most common form of personal injury is from an accident involving some form of transportation – whether that be a boat accident, or an accident involving a truck, bus, train, car, motorcycle, a combination of any of these, or some other form of motor vehicle. As someone who has been injured in a boat accident, the law allows you to sue in a civil action called a tort. A tort is a complicated process, and that means you require an experienced attorney like Chicago based personal injury lawyer Michael Brennan, to gain fair compensation for your accident.

Illinois is a water state. With Lake Michigan on the border, the Mississippi River, and the numerous other lakes and rivers in the area, there is a large amount of boating to be done. However, that does mean that tragic boat accidents regularly occur. A boat accident may also be called a boat crash, boat wreck, boat collision, and it also includes jet ski accidents.

A boat accident may be caused by someone’s negligence, perhaps driver negligence, or faulty equipment and warning systems. Although the most common type of boat accident is one boat colliding with another, it may not be someone in a boat that is injured. This information is equally relevant if you were a swimmer, on a jet ski or other water craft, or simply an innocent bystander and were injured in a boat accident. If you have any questions whether or not you are able to sue, do not hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney, such as Michael Brennan, as soon as possible.

There are some scary statistics on boat accidents. According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, in 2001, more than 80 people died or were injured in a boat accident, solely in the Illinois area. The majority of these accidents occurred in calm water. That makes it more important than ever to contact a personal injury lawyer such as Michael Brennan, who is situated in both Orland Park and Chicago , if you have been injured in a boat accident.

Often, it can be very difficult to negotiate with your insurance company in regards to a boat accident. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to handle if more than property damage was involved? Do not hesitate, get in touch with Chicago personal injury attorney Michael Brennan. He will advise you on your rights for compensation and will pursue that on your behalf, represent you in court if necessary, and will advise you on any other options available to you.

The compensation that you can claim covers a number of aspects. You may get compensation for your medical bills, including past, current, and future care. You may get compensation for lost wages if your ability to work has been impaired. You may also get compensation for reasons that are less quantifiable, but are still very important. These include pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of consortium (which, simply put, is when your spousal relationship has been affected).
