Largay Law Offices, P.A. attorneys represent clients throughout Coastal and Inland Maine who have suffered personal injuries or lost loved ones in boating accidents and collisions. Many factors can contribute to a boating accident either on a privately owned vessel, a personal watercraft (jet ski) or even a whale-watching boat or ferry. Some of these factors include:
- Driver/Pilot/Boat Captain error
- Driver inexperience/recklessness
- Driving while intoxicated
- Equipment failure
- Adverse weather and/or water conditions
- Insufficient walkways, gangplanks or exits
As a general rule of law a boat operator and its owner must exercise the highest degree of care to prevent injuries to those passengers in the boat or swimmers or others in the waters or boats around them. Our experienced attorneys will discuss your situation and go over the options available to you, as well as work with the insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure all your needs are handled quickly and appropriately.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, or you are survivor of a sailor, guest on a boat or fellow boat captain who has been killed in a road accident, or you've suffered similar harm, contact us online or call us at 207.947.4LAW (4529) to set up a FREE consultation to discuss your legal options.
