Attorney Eric Blank

Boating Accident Lawyer in Las Vegas

There are several ponds and lakes around the city of Las Vegas, including:

  • Lake Las Vegas
  • Sunset Park Pond
  • Lake Mead

You can go to the marina and rent a boat to enjoy time in the water. If you love to sail, this is a unique opportunity for you.

However, it is not without risks. Each year, there are several boating accidents in the city caused by negligence.

Why do you Need a Boating Accident Lawyer?

The biggest challenge in a boating accident is determining who is at fault. A Las Vegas boating accident lawyer will help you build a strong case. They will:

  • Find all the reports related to the incident to help identify the timeline and other facts of the case.
  • Check the safety record of the boating company to see if they had any similar incidents in the past.
  • Examine the medical records of your injuries to investigate how they occurred.

Contact our Las Vegas boating accident lawyer if you need legal assistance with your boating accident claim.

The Common Causes of Boating Accidents in Las Vegas

A boating accident can occur for several reasons, but most are avoidable and are a direct result of negligence. In that scenario, you can claim damages.

Examples of boating accidents are:

  • The boat operator is untrained or does not have the proper experience
  • Dangerous operation of the boat, including high-speed turns and other stunts
  • The crew is inattentive or distracted, which leads to an accident
  • Being drunk or impaired while operating the vessel
  • Violating the safety rules of navigating boats in the water
  • The vessel is not maintained properly
  • No sufficient life jackets are available onboard
  • Negligence in the manufacturing of the vessel

In a boating accident claim, the plaintiff must prove who was at fault. Moreover, a proper investigation is necessary to prove their negligence.

The next step is determining damages.

Damages You Can Recover From Boating Accidents

Establishing the fault or liability of the defendant is not enough to receive proper compensation. You must also demonstrate that you suffered damages due to the incident.

Examples of damages are:

  • The medical bills for emergency room care
  • Cost of follow-up treatments and therapy required to recover from the sustained injury
  • Damage to property
  • Lost wages
  • Pain, suffering, and emotional anguish, including PTSD
  • Permanent disability
  • Wrongful death

All factors need to be considered for your claim. Talk to our Las Vegas boating accident lawyer to learn how you can move forward.

Injuries Sustained in Las Vegas Boating Accidents

Victims of boating accidents can suffer minor to serious injuries depending on the situation. Some examples include:

  • Severe lacerations from broken glass or rope
  • Concussions
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Internal organ damage

How a Boating Accident Lawyer can Benefit Your Case

A boating accident can seem straightforward at first. Another person causes the incident and you get injured. Hence, you deserve compensation. However, it is not always that simple.

Most of the time, the defendant's insurance company will deny your claim. If they do make an offer, it will typically not be a fair amount.

Simply put, you need an experienced attorney by your side. Call Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today to schedule a free strategy session.
