People associate boating with fun and adventure and “getting away from it all.” Unfortunately, that carefree attitude, mixed with alcohol and powerful motors, creates dangerous conditions on Arizona’s crowded lakes.
Were you or a family member injured in a boat accident because of someone’s negligent or reckless operation? The law firm of Faith, Ledyard & Faith, PLC, handles watercraft-related injuries in the Phoenix area and statewide Arizona. We have the experience and resources to pursue full damages for your harm and loss.
Boating Accident Attorneys Seeking Full Compensation
The competition for recreational boating space in Arizona is so great that people must literally take a number and wait for hours to put their boat on certain lakes. The heavy traffic, combined with other factors, leads to many accidents:
- Collisions between boats
- Personal watercraft (Jet Ski) accidents
- Collisions with docks, piers or overpasses
- Injuries to swimmers, skiers, windsurfers and sailboaters
Common injuries include head and face injuries, back and neck injuries, broken bones, lacerations and burns, as well as brain injury from near-drowning. We work with professionals to detail a case for medical care, lost earnings, lasting impairment, pain and suffering, and all applicable damages.
