Boating And Personal Watercraft Accident

Without the ability to listen to my client’s needs, I believe I would just be spinning my wheels. It is our goal at Stapleton Law Office to always put our clients’ issues in perspective and find the law that best serves their interests.

Rogersville Boating and Personal Watercraft Accident Lawyer

Representing Boat And Personal Watercraft Crash Victims

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 power boat accident, talking with a trial lawyer about the incident is the best way to learn your rights.

A Specialty Law Firm Serving Injury Victims

You can contact the Stapleton Law Office for a free initial consultation about your boat accident. For more than 20 years, our founding attorney — Mark Stapleton — has been helping clients achieve the best possible results in litigation.

Mark is certified as a specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He has a strong background in health-related issues, which helps him to better understand his clients’ legal issues in the personal injury field.

This experience helps our law firm achieve a record of success, including being the first and only law firm to obtain a seven-figure jury verdict in a personal injury case in Hawkins County.

A big cruiser ran over a 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 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.
