Michigan Boating Accident Lawyers You Can Depend on to Fight for Your Rights
Boating accidents often occur throughout Michigan. From accidents involving fishing boats on the Detroit River, to Lake St. Clair yacht accidents, to sailboat or speedboat accidents on Cass Lake, boating accidents can result in serious, potentially fatal injuries. At Fraser & Souweidane, our lawyers know that boat operators have certain responsibilities to both passengers and other boaters in the water around them. This includes understanding the policies and laws governing the use of a boat in a public waterway. Failure to follow safety guidelines can lead to a boat operator being charged with reckless operation and charges in a criminal court.
Getting justice after a Michigan boating accident
In addition to criminal charges, a negligent boater can also face civil litigation and be ordered to pay the victim or victims injured in an accident. If you or a loved one was involved in a boating accident in Michigan, let an experienced Michigan boating accident lawyer at Fraser & Souweidane, P.C. be one of the first people you call to protect your rights. We can immediately begin a full investigation into the accident to determine the events that took place leading up to the accident. If alcohol or drugs were involved, we will need to know in case any criminal charges are to be filed. Like a drunk driving accident, a boating accident caused by someone under the influence can greatly influence the outcome of your case and monetary compensation received.
Many times, we find that the cause of the accident was careless or reckless operation by the person driving the boat. In other cases, the accident is caused by structural flaws when the boat was built or something being improperly repaired at a licensed repair facility. If you are faced with this type of accident, we can advise you of your rights to sue the repair facility or manufacturer. You may have grounds to file a product liability lawsuit.
