Boating accidents can result in personal injuries of all kinds, some of them devastating. If you have been involved in a boating accident, it is critical that you seek immediate medical attention, and contact police to have the accident properly investigated and documented. The law and rules on operating boats in lakes and waterways are different than those of driving a car, and insurance coverage is different.
All of this can make it quite complicated for an individual to pursue a personal injury claim from a boating accident on their own. In the event of a boating accident, it is important that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible after you have attended to any urgent medical care, to assess your claim and options. Jennifer Hoffman has successfully represented claimants who have been catastrophically injured in boating accidents, and helped her clients maximize recovery with their claims.
Likewise, ATV and snowmobile accidents can result in many kinds of harm, some of which are life-changing catastrophic injuries affecting victims and their families forever. These accidents often involve complicated insurance issues, including whether coverage is available.
Claims arising from injuries sustained in ATV or snowmobile accidents involve elements of both motor vehicle law and accident benefits law. The driver, passenger or pedestrian or other victim of a properly insured ATV or snowmobile may be entitled to numerous benefits, including income replacement, medical and rehabilitation benefits, and attendant care.
Whether or not your vehicle or the other driver’s vehicle was properly insured, it is strongly advised that you contact a lawyer to determine your rights and options. At Hoffman Law we have the experience to navigate complicated coverage issues, and pursue maximum compensation for our clients and their families.
