What should I do after being injured in a boat accident?
Recently I was contacted by someone who had been in a boating accident, and they asked me what they should do. The first thing I told them they need to do is seek medical treatment immediately and follow the doctor’s orders. This is to give them the best chance at recovery.
The next thing they need to do is hire an attorney as soon as possible. Part of an attorney’s role is to investigate and act as a detective on what happened. It’s also to gather all the evidence and get it on the record. Evidence disappears, stories change, and an attorney will help make sure that doesn’t happen.
The next thing is that person needs to hire the right attorney. The right attorney is someone who focuses a large amount of their practice on personal injury claims. Personal injury claims and boating claims are very different than other types of claims. Also, that attorney should be a trial lawyer. A trial lawyer is an attorney that prepares every case as if it’s going to trial.
