4-4. Boat Accidents

   At first, what began as an exciting day of fun and enjoyment on the lake suddenly becomes a horrible tragedy in the event that a boating accident occurred causes personal injury. Reckless and negligent boat operators are the cause of most boating accidents. Boat operators that are distracted even by the slightest thing can lose sight of any swimmers or drive too close to other watercraft near them and cause serious injuries or heavy damage to personal property. Our experienced personal injury attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm represent boat accident victims in the Los Angeles area and will ensure you receive full compensation for any pain, suffering or financial loss that you received in a boating accident due to someone else's negligence. We will secure a settlement cost for damages due to lost income, medical bills, and damages to personal property, plus compensation for your pain and suffering.

   Boating accidents can generate severe and/or even life-threatening injuries. The on-scene attention of a paramedic or ambulance may be required to ensure immediate medical attention at a medical facility.
