If you’ve been injured in a boating accident it is even more important that you receive immediate legal advice than if you were injured in a car accident.
Most boating accidents in our area will take place on the Great Lakes. This could result in cross-border issues and jurisdictional disputes. If you do not act you could lose your right to recover for your pain and suffering.
Living on the Great Lakes provides all of us who live here with access to a variety of enjoyable activities, including pleasure boating, jet skiing, scuba diving, water skiing, swimming and fishing. However, each year many are severely injured or killed if the water craft operators are careless, untrained or intoxicated. Statistics show that alcohol is involved in 38% of boating fatalities. Personal water craft have almost double the number of fatalities per 100,000 craft than power boats.
If you have been injured on the water, you should immediately notify the local police and seek medical attention. You may also need to notify the Transportation Safety Board of Canada. Then you need to hire the law firm of Chodola Reynolds Binder to protect all of your rights. Experienced trial lawyers are ready to represent you and see that you recover everything you are entitled to for your pain, suffering, medical treatments and lost wages.

Simply call today or fill out the form on this page. Remember, there is absolutely no charge for this consultation and we don’t get paid unless you do.
