Boating And Personal Watercraft Accidents

Representing Boat And Personal Watercraft Crash Injury Victims And Their Families

Residents of East Tennessee are blessed by the tremendous beauty of Cherokee Lake, an enormous reservoir that spans Hawkins, Grainger, Hamblen and Jefferson counties. The lake is known as a great spot for recreation. Fishermen enjoy fishing for bass, while families enjoy swimming, skiing, wakeboarding and boating.

Unfortunately, the lake is also a spot for accidents. Negligent boaters can cause serious injuries, including wrongful death by drowning, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones. If you have been injured in a boating accident, talking with a trial lawyer about the incident is the best way to learn your rights.

A big cruiser ran over little fishing boat. The cruiser was traveling at such a speed that the operator of the vehicle did not even see the little vessel it crushed. For the fisherman in the small boat as well as for his family, life was changed forever. We represented the fisherman's family in a boating accident lawsuit and helped them achieve a favorable outcome.

Ski-Doos, Jet Skis And Personal Watercraft Accidents

Boats are not the only causes of water-related accidents in Tennessee. Jet Skis and other personal watercraft are often to blame. People mistakenly believe that these pieces of equipment are toys, so they fail to take the necessary safety precautions.

Unfortunately, many personal watercraft manufacturers only make the problem worse. They do not provide proper warnings to watercraft users. Manufacturers often design watercraft dangerously. They also make errors in manufacturing that cause serious injury.
