San Diego And Southern California Maritime And Boat Accident Attorneys

California has numerous lakes, rivers and the longest stretch of the Pacific coast in the country. However, with the opportunity for recreational boating and other activities comes the increased risk for accidents and injury. Fast-moving boats and jet skis can cause serious injuries and accidents by capsizing, sinking or colliding with another watercraft or a water skier.

Personal injury firm, Jeffrey E. Estes & Associates, APC, represents plaintiffs in San Diego, Orange County, Riverside county, San Bernardino County, Imperial County and all of Southern California in pursuing full recovery for damages resulting from boating accidents and injuries caused by the negligence of others. If you or a loved one has been injured on the water, call Toll Free 855-290-8080 for legal help.

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

Generally, the legal issues associated with boating accidents and injuries are similar to other personal injury claims issues. Questions of negligence and causation determine what if any damages may be recovered by the injured.

As with other motor vehicle accidents, the driver or operator is not always to blame for the accident. The cause of the injuries may be traced back to faulty boat machinery and equipment. In such a case, the boat manufacturer, or other third parties, may be held responsible for compensation.

Boat accident attorneys at Jeffrey E. Estes & Associates, APC, represent plaintiffs with cases related to the following:

  • Recreational boating accidents
  • Boat collisions
  • Jet skiing accidents
  • Water skiing accidents
