Boating accidents and injuries are not uncommon in Boise and across Idaho. Sometimes these accidents are a result of bad luck, and no one is to blame. Other times, however, boating accidents are the result of someone’s negligent or reckless conduct. Offshore injury claims can be complicated matters, especially if you do not have legal representation with experience handling boating accident cases.
Attorneys at Tillmann Law have a thorough knowledge and understanding of applicable boating laws, and they represent clients who have been injured in all types of watercraft accidents. If you or a loved one were involved in a boating accident caused by someone else, contact our office to schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney.
Determining who was at fault for a boating accident largely depends on who or what caused the accident and how it occurred. Boat operators are required to comply with established boating rules and regulations. Water accidents are frequently caused by negligent or reckless boat operation, often involving speed, intoxication, inattentive driving, failure to have a lookout, and distracted driving.
Boat owners and operators also have a duty to ensure that their boats are well maintained with proper safety equipment and free from dangerous conditions. Other causes of accidents include poor boat maintenance, watercraft defects, unexpected obstructions in the water, and unruly boat passengers.
We have a history of successfully representing injured clients and obtaining millions of dollars for their claims. Our attorneys stand up to defendants and insurance companies, refusing to settle claims that do not fairly compensate our clients. We are not afraid to turn down inadequate settlement offers to pursue maximum compensation at trial. Our legal strategies are designed to protect our clients’ rights and secure the best possible outcome in their cases.
When you are represented by an attorney, you will typically recover more compensation for your losses than those who decide to handle their injury claims alone. At Tillmann Law, we understand how difficult the physical, financial, and emotional recovery process can be after a boating accident. While you work on your physical and emotional recovery, our attorneys will advocate for your monetary recovery from all responsible parties. Contact us online or by calling (503) 683-8113 today.
