Recreational boating in Southern California is enjoyed by thousands of people every year who take boats and personal watercraft vehicles out onto the region’s many lakes and the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, when proper safety precautions are not taken, recreational boating accidents can result, which cause passengers and others to suffer serious injuries. In the worst cases, passengers may even drown or suffer fatal injuries.
At the law office of Lauby, Mankin & Lauby LLP, our attorneys have represented individuals injured in serious boating accidents since 1998 and have built a strong reputation for our knowledgeable, responsive and experienced representation. If you have been injured in a recreational boating accident that was caused by another person’s negligence, our lawyers will help you fight for the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
Boats and other recreational watercraft vehicles have the potential to be just as dangerous on California waterways as cars and trucks are on California highways and roads. Factors that commonly lead to boating accidents may include:
Boating accidents do not always involve boats colliding with one another. Sometimes, boats collide with piers, harbors and other structures. Other times, individuals on those boats will be knocked overboard or will be hurt on the boats themselves due to violence or negligent behavior.
