Boat Accident Lawyers in New York City

Injured in a Boating Accident? We Are Here for You.

While we often hear about how people are injured in automobile accidents across New York, we don’t often hear about how often individuals are involved in other kinds of vehicle accidents. Victims of boating, airplane, and railroad accidents are entitled to the same legal protections as those of motor vehicle accidents, but most individuals are unaware of what options are available to them.

If someone else was responsible for your injuries, you are entitled to monetary damages to compensate you for your losses, expenses, and more. Our NYC boating accident attorneys at Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. can talk to you about what happened and how to move forward with a case, while answering your questions and alleviating your concerns.

Protection Provided to NYC Boat Accident Victims

As water travel and leisure become increasingly popular, the likelihood of an injury also increases. Depending on the waterway, there may be cruise ships, Navy ships, yachts, or even fishing boats nearby. Due to the growth in water traffic and the variety of vehicles present, injuries in boating accidents are occurring more frequently in Oneida Lake and Seneca Lake as well as along the New York coastline.

Water vessel laws are enforced by the Coast Guards in a manner similar to how traffic laws are enforced by the police. If an accident occurs in the water, it is important to determine its cause. An investigation is usually conducted to determine if the rules of the waterway were being followed at the time of the incident or whether negligence played a part. Depending on these findings, the victim may be able to secure compensation to help with their recovery.

Professional and experienced legal representation can eliminate the burden of gathering evidence, taking photographs, and collecting testimony from witnesses, allowing you to completely focus on your recovery. Our legal team understands the struggles you are dealing with as a result of your boat accident. We are dedicated to presenting the strongest legal case imaginable on your behalf.

If you have been injured, contact our New York City boat accident lawyers today at (646) 681-7055 for a free case evaluation. We will work hard to ensure your legal rights are protected.
