Boat and Jet Ski Accidents often involve catastrophic injuries. There are various reasons why, from incompetent or reckless operators, to alcohol or drugs playing a significant part in the crash.
Specifically, alcohol is the leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents in the United States. Like the term Driving While Intoxicated (“DWI”) involving a vehicle offense, the term Boating While Intoxicated (“BWI”) can lead to the same criminal arrests and consequences for persons operating a boat or jet ski. In fact, a BWI carries the same penalty as a DWI. Your ability to leverage these cases largely coincides with your ability to get access to the criminal file from the district or county attorney’s office. The expertise and knowledge we bring to the table allows us to leverage your case and add significant value to the any settlement offer, particularly regarding a BWI case.

We will give you all the time your case deserves, and we will give you an honest assessment of your case and whether we can represent you.
