WE SPEAK MULTIPLE LANGUAGES
Riding on a boat with family and friends is a great way to spend an afternoon in Seattle. However, many people will suffer injuries on boats and other watercraft, and many of these accidents are caused by the negligence of others.
At Khan Law Firm, we represent boating accident victims and help them obtain compensation for their injuries. If you have been hurt, please reach out to us today. Many of our clients have obtained compensation.
No two boating accidents are exactly alike, but as experienced attorneys we have seen some common types of boating accidents, including:
After an accident, you will want evidence that identifies why the accident occurred. Appropriate evidence can include your own memories and the memories of your passengers. There might be other evidence your Seattle boating accident lawyer can find.
When someone else is responsible for the accident or your injuries, you can sue them for compensation if they were negligent. Some of the more common reasons people are negligent include:
Victims who survive a boating accident can incur massive medical bills to treat their injuries. They also might be unable to return to work immediately after the accident or be unable to return to their old job at all.
At our firm, we take a holistic view of your case to determine how much compensation you can receive. In our experience, many boating accident victims can qualify to receive money for:
Every case turns on its own facts, and no lawyer can promise that you will receive a particular amount of money. Some factors that might limit your financial recovery include your own negligence and the amount of resources the defendant has. If the defendant is broke, for example, then you might not receive much compensation at all. Your lawyer should thoroughly investigate the defendant’s financial condition to gauge how many resources he or she has.
The days and weeks following a boating accident can be confusing. You might be going from doctor to doctor to receive medical care and pain management while worrying about how you will pay your bills. Family members might be worried about their future, which suddenly seems uncertain.
We can help. A Seattle boating accident lawyer at Khan Law Firm can meet with you to go over what happened while out on the water. This meeting allows us to better judge whether you have a compelling claim for compensation and what other evidence you will need to bolster your claim.
