Recreational activities on the waters are popular for many people in Connecticut. However, when a sunny day is darkened by the negligence of other boaters, a victim of a watercraft accident can suffer debilitating injuries. Boats and other personal watercraft do not have seat belts and victims can be thrown in a boating accident.
Accidents on the water often involve alcohol. Boaters and watercraft operators, such as Jet Skis, can act negligently on the water, just as motorists can be reckless on the roadways.
In watercraft and beach accident cases, we work with skilled investigators to provide a complete picture of the causes and contributing factors to the accident. Accident victims who suffer from the negligence of a personal watercraft operator or boat should not bear the burden of the costs of medical care, property damage and other harms caused by a watercraft accident.
