Injury Attorneys | Restoring LivesTM

Wilson Kehoe Winingham has represented many clients in Indiana who have suffered personal injuries or lost loved ones in boating accidents. If you or a loved one has been in a boat related accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Types of Boating Accidents

Common causes and types of boating accidents include the following:

  • Collisions with objects or other boats
  • Flooding or swamping the boat
  • Grounding
  • Capsizing
  • Water sports accidents (jet skis, wind surfing, parasailing, etc.)

Determining Who Is Liable for a Boating Accident

Several factors can contribute to accidents involving watercraft, and WKW makes use of in-house investigators and the latest digital technology to research and recreate the conditions and factors leading up to an accident.

These factors may include:

  • Operator error or inexperience
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Equipment failure or malfunction
  • Adverse weather or water conditions

As a general rule of law, a boat operator and its owner must exercise the highest degree of awareness to prevent injuries to passengers, swimmers, or others in the water or other watercraft around them. Our experienced attorneys will discuss your situation and review the options available to you. In addition, we will work with insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure all your needs are handled quickly and appropriately.
