Boating Accident Attorney or Lawyer
Accidents typically deal with accidents on pleasure craft rather than commercial vessels. These would include personal water craft (commonly referred to as “wave runners” or “jet skis”) which account for a large percentage of boating accidents. These accidents can also involve water activities such as water skiing, parasailing, diving, and fishing. If the accident occurs on navigable waters then admiralty and maritime law could apply. If the accident occurs on non-navigable waters (such as a small lake) then the laws of the state where the accident occurred would apply.
Maritime and Admiralty Law often deal with the application of law to events that occur on navigable waters.
