It doesn’t matter what kind of boating accident you have been involved in. Your first priority should be to ensure that you’re safe. You can then think of what you should do next. Some steps to take after a boat accident include:
— Reporting the accident to the United States Coast Guard. The US Coast Guard will provide emergency rescue services if needed. They will also prepare an accident report that will include what they believe was the cause of the accident and the extent of damage caused. This report will be a vital piece of evidence when making a claim.
— Document the scene of the accident as well as your injuries. Take videos or photos of the damage as well as your injuries. These photos and videos will be invaluable evidence when you’re seeking compensation for your injuries.

What is Personal Injury?
If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.
Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.
It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

Our attorneys and staff are competent, compassionate, and committed to seeking the maximum fair and appropriate compensation for all of our clients.

Types of Personal Injury
Personal injuries can refer to injuries sustained due to dental malpractice, product liability, or assault claims, but they more commonly involve the following types of injuries:
When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.
Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.
When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.
An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface. Other types of negligence or dangerous circumstances may also lead to an injury or death. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement. Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.
Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.
A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.
An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time. Workers’ compensation is available for these types of accidents. Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to file a lawsuit.
Death caused by negligence or intentional actions of another party is known as wrongful death. The NY accident attorneys at our law office are experienced in these cases and are ready to help you fight for the money you need.
When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The New York personal injury attorneys at our law firm are ready to help you fight for fair compensation.
