According to the United States Coast Guard, every one of the top five contributing factors in boating accidents are examples of personal negligence. Failure to pay attention to the waterways; careless boating; improper passenger behavior (including unsafe behavior by skiers); excessive speed, and the use of drugs or alcohol all set the stage for severe injuries
or even death for operators, passengers, and innocent by-standers.

The Costs of a Boating Accident

Watercraft and boating accidents caused over $50 million in property damage during 2007. Over 680 deaths were caused by accidents during the same period, as well as over 3600 injuries. Falling overboard is indicated as the primary cause in over 200 boating accident deaths, while colliding with another vessel is the accident type most likely to cause injury.

When a boat or personal watercraft collides with another vessel or fixed object, the likelihood of severe injury is very high. Traumatic amputation, brain injuries, spine injuries, and loss of vision are common injuries associated with boating accidents.

Although the medical services required for treating serious injuries are quite expensive, health care costs account for only a fraction of the total costs of a boating or watercraft accident. A recent Centers for Disease Control study found that other costs, such as lost wages, pain, and suffering make up the bulk of the costs associated with a boating
accident

Boating and watercraft accident attorneys work with injured victims to ensure that the mental, emotional, and physical costs of an accident are paid through personal injury claims. The needs of those who depend on the victim for emotional or financial support also have value, and a boating and watercraft accident lawyer makes sure those needs are met. Watercraft accident attorneys also represent the families and loved ones of victims
killed in boating accidents.

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read more

I had such a great experience with Samer Habbas & Associates from the very beginning of working with them. The process was so easy from the start. They came to me to get the details of the accident, they asked me for a few additional documents which I scanned in, and then they took it over completely. In a time of need, they were amazing with taking all the burden off of me and eventually getting me a great result as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone.read more

I was in a terrible wreck back in October. I had multiple broken bones and a severe concussion. I started searching for lawyers immediately and after interviewing 5 different lawyers. I felt Samer was going to do the best to represent me and he did. Samer, Mike, and Jazmine went above and beyond to make sure everything was in order from dealing with insurance companies to getting the medical treatment I needed. They answer their phones and if they do miss your call they actually call you back in a timely manner. They made sure I was taken care of, the service they provide to their clients is unrivaled. I hope nothing like this ever happens to me again but if it does Samer and Mike have earned my business for life. They are hands down the best personal injury attorneys ever. I highly encourage anyone who has been in accident to go with Samer and Mike if your hurt or injured there is no firm better than this one. Thanks again Samer I appreciate all the work and help you and your team have done so i can get through this! :)read more
