Boat Accident Lawyer In Ann Arbor

If you’ve been injured in a boating accident — as a passenger, an operator, or a swimmer — it is essential to have a lawyer at your side when seeking compensation and recovering damages.

The Complexity of Boating Accident Cases

Because of its extraordinary freshwater resources, Michigan has a lot of boats, a lot of boat operators, and accidents happen.

Even if someone else was obviously at fault, that doesn’t mean that you will be able to recover damages. If the negligent person doesn’t have boaters’ liability insurance and lacks assets, you may not be able to recover anything.

Michigan’s no-fault auto insurance laws do not cover injuries sustained in a boating accident. Homeowner’s insurance might provide coverage, but unlike motor vehicle coverage that includes uninsured benefits, homeowners’ insurance policies almost never provide coverage for the actions of other people who do not have insurance.

In many cases, filing a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party is the only way to receive compensation for your injuries. There are some tricky legal issues when making a personal injury claim regarding a boating accident. To recover damages, you, the plaintiff, must prove that your injury resulted from someone’s negligence.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. are ready to meet with you, at your convenience, to learn more about your boating accident, your injuries, and evidentiary record. After this free consultation, if we decide to work together, it will be with a contingency fee agreement, which means we don’t get paid until we get a settlement for you.

What Damages Can Be Recovered?

If you are seriously injured, and if a boater acted negligently and you are injured as a result, you have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit to cover damages. These damages include your medical bills, your lost earnings, your lost earning capacity, and other nonmedical (pain and suffering) damages.

The professionals at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. are ready to negotiate, on your behalf with any insurance company representing the defendant in a personal injury lawsuit. We are a full-service personal injury law firm, helping individuals and families throughout the Great Lakes to receive fair and adequate compensation after an accident — whether it’s a boating accident, a car, truck or motorcycle accident, medical malpractice, slip and fall injuries, and other injuries where we can prove that the negligence of another caused those injuries.

Proving Negligence

The fact that you got hurt does not mean that anyone was negligent. In legal terms, negligence is “the failure to act with reasonable care.” This means that you and your lawyer must prove that someone failed to act with reasonable care.

Finding a Michigan boat accident lawyer is essential in gathering the evidence you need to prove negligence and negotiate a satisfactory settlement.
