Boating Accidents

Boating is supposed to be an enjoyable activity you share with your family and friends. Unfortunately, when an operator is careless or negligent, accidents happen that can quickly turn happiness into sadness and wreak havoc on your life.

When a boating accident ends in serious or fatal injuries such as paralysis or drowning, it's the victim and the victim's family who suffer the greatest loss. Don't let your loss go unanswered — seek representation and assert your right to compensation with our help.

The attorneys at Salam & Associates, PC, have considerable experience handling all forms of personal injury claims, including claims associated with a serious or fatal boating accident. We will help you understand your right to compensation, hold the negligent party responsible, and help you pursue financial damages to cover all of your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and additional costs. Our main office is in Richardson, and we can meet clients at our Las Cruces location as well (by appointment only).

We Hold Negligent Boaters Accountable

Negligence comes in many forms and can include:

• Speeding

• Inattention or distraction

• Reckless operation

Impairment due to alcohol or drugs

• Inexperience operating a boat or watercraft

• Poor or absent supervision of an inexperienced operator

• Improper vehicle maintenance

If negligence was a factor in a watercraft accident and you were injured, you deserve to be compensated by the negligent party.  Salam & Associates, PC is experienced in handling these cases. Our lawyers will review all aspects of your case to determine the exact cause of the collision and examine the full extent of your injuries, which may include:

• Head trauma

Brain injury

• Broken bones or fractures

Spinal cord injury

• Severe lacerations

• Loss of limb

Fatal injuries

Helping you recover damages that meet your financial needs now and later on is our top concern. We will check all applicable insurance policies before aggressively pursuing compensation from the insurance company.

If you receive pushback from the insurance company because of a complex or high-end policy or because a negligent boater refuses to accept responsibility for his or her actions, we will go beyond the insurance policy and take your claim to court, where we will fight to get you what you need to recover fully.
