SEATTLE BOATING ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
If you or a family member have been injured in a boating, diving, charter boat, or personal watercraft accident, contact the boating accident lawyers of Dixon Law Firm, PLLC. We have extensive experience in obtaining compensation for victims of personal injury relating to vessels at sea or inland waters of Washington.
Dixon Law Firm has represented clients throughout Washington in various types of boat and watercraft accidents:
• Private boats — The operator of a private vessel owes an absolute obligation of safety to any passengers. We handle all types of injuries, including collisions with other boats, docks or bridge abutments, or people thrown overboard or injured on deck when bounced around.
• Charter boats and ferries — Captains of commercial launches and ferry boats are held to a high standard of responsibility. The operators and owners are responsible for injuries related to crashes or passengers injured because of the decision to sail in rough seas.
• Personal watercraft — Dixon Law firm handles "waverunner" or "jet ski" accidents, including collisions with other boaters or fixed objects, swimmers hit by a PWC, and people injured when thrown from a personal watercraft. We examine possible design defects and individual negligence.
• Drunk boating — Operating a boat or watercraft while intoxicated is a criminal offense, and drunk boaters who cause accidents are liable to victims for any injuries caused.
Victims of boating injuries can collect damages for medical expenses and future care, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. In a fatal boating accident, family members can collect for expenses, emotional trauma, and loss of net accumulations and contributions of the loved ones.
Dixon Law Firm is knowledgeable about maritime law and other Washington laws pertaining to these injuries, investigates immediately, and aggressively seeks maximum compensation.
At Dixon Law Firm, our lawyers are dedicated to helping victims of boating accidents recover full compensation. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or disabled, or you simply need more information, please call us at (206) 330-0212.
