Your Boating Accident Attorney
Those who have been in the unfortunate position of suffering from boating accidents often find themselves with devastating injuries and emotional trauma. Unfortunately, getting fair compensation isn’t always as easy or straightforward, but having an experienced attorney on your side can make all the difference.
At The McCloud Law Firm, we not only have the experience in helping boating accident victims fight for fair compensation, but we have a “No Win/No Pay” policy. This means that if we don’t get a settlement or win our case in court, you don’t pay us anything. We accept your case based on the contingency that we will collect money on your behalf.
More than this, it’s a little-known secret in the legal world that most personal injury law firms take more money from a settlement or court decision that the client receives.
Our promise to our clients is that we will never accept more money than our clients in any case that we negotiate a settlement for or win in court. That’s our commitment to you.

Common Causes of How Boating Accidents Typically Occur
The leading cause of accidents involving personal watercraft is collisions with other boats. However, a boating accident could happen for a variety of reasons and some common causes include:
- Driving a boat while under the influence of alcohol/drugs
- Inexperience in driving a boat
- Reckless driving, such as speeding
- Poor weather conditions
- Faulty/Malfunctioning boating equipment
Whether or not the driver is in complete control of their boat at the time of the incident, they should be held responsible for your damages. The boating accident attorneys at The McCloud Law Firm can analyze your case and determine how much fault might be assigned so that justice will prevail on all fronts.
Common Types of Damages That Can Be Recovered
When you’re injured in a boating accident that was caused by another person, under state law your rights include compensation for physical and emotional injuries as well as any loss of property. Some common types of damages that might be sustained from these accidents include:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages and Income
- Emotional Distress
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
- Reduced Earning Capacity
- And More
