Accidents > Water Injury

Individuals who have been injured while engaging in water sport activities may be able to recover significant financial compensation for their injuries. Types of water sport activities include: Boating Accidents, Water Skiing, Inflatables, Towables, Water Park Rides, Flume Rides, Jet Ski and Wave Runner Accidents, Public Swim Areas, and Hotel Pool Drownings.

When serious injuries occur, family members are left worried, in pain, and at a loss as how to proceed after the accident. Some of these injuries can be life altering and include extensive spinal cord damage, brain injuries, fractures, and even death. As these are significant injuries, we have also gathered vital information on coping with the personal and financial effects of these injuries, which may be difficult to manage without the proper preparation.

Many aquatic accidents could have been avoided and only occurred due to inexperience, inadequate warning signs, neglectful supervision, defective mechanics or just plain carelessness. When serious water related accident occurs, a thorough investigation and evaluation of its causes is always the best way for the family to proceed. Often what may look like an accident is actually a defective product or the result of negligence.

Legal claims involving water accidents can involve complex and technical issues which our law firm can handle for your family.   The following list contains factual and evidentiary matters that will be considered when evaluating a water liability claim:

  1. What was the specific activity being performed?

  2. When and where was it being performed:

  3. Was it age appropriate for the person involved?

  4. Was the activity properly supervised?

  5. Was the activity part of a commercial rental business?

  6. Were the operator’s trained in lifesaving techniques?

  7. Was safety equipment available?

  8. Did the injured participant sign a waiver or release of liability before engaging in the activity?

  9. Were there any witnesses to the accident?

  10. Were any photographs or videos taken of the accident?
