When Fun Turns to Tragedy on the Water

McLario, Helm, Bertling, & Spiegel, S.C.

Spending time in the water whether swimming or boating is a great way to spend the weekends or holidays, but these events can lead to a boating accident. Regardless of how careful you are about water safety, there is always the possibility of an accident. We cannot control how other individuals use the water bodies, and unfortunately, due to boating under the influence, negligence, or other circumstances, another person can cause an accident.

Most people don’t understand how damages are awarded in a personal injury case with many asking the following question, “What compensation can I receive?” There are some tricky and complicated issues when it comes to personal injury claims especially from boating accidents i.e. establishing liability and negligence when the accident was caused by a wave. The tricky situation behind boating accident personal injury cases should only be assessed by a Milwaukee injury lawyer. It is important to note that compensation is based on proving who caused the accident and the degree of responsibility.
