New Orleans Recreational Boating Accidents Lawyers

Boating is a popular activity on the rivers, lakes and coastal waters in the New Orleans area. However, one moment of carelessness can cause catastrophic or fatal accidents involving boaters, swimmers or water skiers. If you or a family member has been injured by a recreational watercraft accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

The New Orleans recreational boating accidents attorneys at Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, help injury victims recover damages from the party responsible for their injuries. We pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. If you lost a family member to wrongful death, we will also seek compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a loved one.

Boating Injuries And Wrongful Death

Boating accidents can result in back and neck injuries, broken bones, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Drowning can lead to serious brain injuries from lack of oxygen or, in the worst cases, wrongful death.

We represent people who are injured on any type of recreational watercraft, including:

  • Yachts
  • Pleasure boats
  • Speedboats
  • Sailboats
  • Non-commercial fishing boats
  • Jet Skis and personal watercraft

A few of the most frequent causes of accidents and injuries involving boats include collisions with other watercraft, boating while intoxicated, capsizing, sinking, running aground and lack of safety equipment on board. Boat defects can also cause accidents.

We investigate accidents to determine liability. Our experienced personal injury lawyers know how to build strong cases that may settle favorably. We are always prepared to go to trial, however, when that is in the client's best interests.
