The Rules of the Water
The rules of the water are different from the rules of the road.
There are distinct contrasts in what governs right of way, operations
in inclement weather, driver competence, and seaworthiness of vessels.
We have handle cases that involve individual drivers of sailboats,
personal watercraft (PWC), and cigarette boats. Many of those cases
involve drunk boating, speeding, or moving violations. Tragically,
serious injury and wrongful death are common outcomes of boating
accidents. We handle those cases as well.
Other cases we handle involve larger vessels, including cruise ship
cases. Some of those involve slip and fall. Others involve sexual
assault that was a result of inadequate security. We have also handled
cases where a cruise ship was serving alcohol to underage patrons,
who were injured as a result of their intoxication. The standard
of care is much higher for a cruise ship than for a private owner.
Often, in these cases, there are multiple commercial parties involved.
Fortunately, we have the knowledge and skill to track down those
responsible and, if necessary, bring them to court. For more information
