Boating Accidents

San Diego Boating Accident Lawyers

Recreational activities on the water are a major part of San Diego life. Many of us enjoy the Pacific Ocean and San Diego's bays, lakes, and rivers via speed boating, sport fishing, sail boating, waterskiing, SCUBA diving, or using personal watercraft like Jet Skis and Sea-Doos.

There are "rules of the water," just as there are rules of the road. When careless or reckless actions on the water cause boating accidents, the injured persons may seek compensation via our system of personal injury law and insurance policy coverage.

We represent people injured in all types of boating accidents that may occur in and around San Diego:

  • Personal watercraft accidents involving Jet Skis and Sea-Doos, whether the accident was caused by negligent use of the watercraft or by a rental company's failure to maintain their rentals in good working order
  • Boating accidents caused by drunken boaters— BUI is a serious problem in San Diego and the cause of more than one fatality each year
  • Accidents caused by failure to observe the "rules of the ocean" when in navigable waters such as the Pacific Ocean offshore from San Diego

In the most tragic cases, we file wrongful death claims on behalf of the surviving family members of drowning victims.
