Boating & Jet Ski Accidents

Boating and Jet Ski Accident Attorneys in Mobile

Fight for Justice with a Maritime Lawyer in Alabama

When you board a ship, jet ski, or boat, you expect that everything is in good working order and that the operator and crew are competent and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, far too often operator error, carelessness, or defective or unsafe products and machinery aboard a watercraft can result in serious and sometimes fatal accidents. This can include everything from minor fires to explosions, collisions, and even the sinking or grounding of the vessel.

Since 1958, Cunningham Bounds has helped countless individuals pursue compensation. Over the years, we have become known as a top personal injury firm in Mobile, Alabama, due to our commitment to excellence and our track record of success. We have obtained billions in verdicts and settlements!

Common Causes of Boating and Jet Ski Accidents

Many people incorrectly believe that if they board a ship or boat, they are responsible for any associated risk. This is not always true. Sometimes the operator, boat owner, manufacturer, maintenance provider, or crew are responsible.

Sadly, many of the boating accidents that lead to severe injuries or wrongful death could have been avoided. In addition to physical injuries ranging from hypothermia to broken bones to drowning, victims also suffer significant emotional loss, economic loss, and diminished quality of life. To help you recover, our firm will investigate the cause of the accident and hold any negligent parties responsible for their reckless actions.

Many accidents result from the following:

  • Operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol
  • Improperly trained operators
  • Recklessness
  • Lack of life jackets
  • Faulty equipment

Who Is Liable for My Boating Accident Injuries?

After a boating or Jet Ski accident, injuries and deaths can also occur as a result of defective or unsafe products and machinery, such as:

  • Defective steering controls
  • Engines
  • Propellers
  • Fuel tanks
  • Wires
  • Safety equipment

Maritime law is complex and differs greatly from that of land-based law. That means there may be many different parties involved in your boating accident claim – and depending on the location of your crash, there may be many different applicable laws at play in your case.
