Here are some of the ways a boat accident lawyer can help you:
Reckless and Careless Operation
As set by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, the behavior of a boat operator falls under the category of "reckless operation" if they violate the state's official Rules of the Road.
This code lays out passing and right-of-way standards, as well as the state laws about boating in certain types of weather, excessive speeds, wake zones and around dive flags. Failure to follow these regulations may result in a citation for careless operation.
Jones Act and Longshore Claims
Our boat accident lawyers also handle maritime claims for workers who were injured on-the-job. Learn more about maritime claims here.
Jet Ski Accident Claims
Jet ski injuries can be far more severe than larger boating accidents because of how the rider is exposed. Serious injuries occurred through operating a jet ski are sometimes the fault of the operator, but can also be due to faulty rental equipment. If this applies to you, the boat accident attorneys at Dudley DeBosier can help discern which party is at fault for injuries sustained through a personal watercraft accident, and whether or not a claim can be brought against the manufacturer and/or the renter of the vehicle.
How Can I Be Compensated for a Boating Injury?
