People often overlook the possibility of a boating accident when they go out onto the water, but the likelihood of a mishap that leads to serious injuries is every bit as possible as it is with car crashes. The presence of so much water also makes suffering a brain injury that leads to unconsciousness particularly dangerous, as drowning or further brain damage due lack of oxygen become very real possibilities.
When you’ve been hurt in a watercraft crash, you might be eligible to recover financial compensation if someone else was at fault for what happened. To ensure that you get the most from your claim, work with a Long Island boat accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP. We can collect all of the necessary evidence and properly evaluate the cost of your damages and losses.
Even if the negligent party’s insurer or attorney approach you with a settlement offer, you should never accept it without first having a Long Island boat accident lawyer from our firm review it. Initial offers are usually lower than what they should be, as the liable party is trying to get you to settle for as little as possible in order to reduce their costs.
The compensation you receive needs to be comprehensive: It should cover both your current and future costs, and it should cover both your financial expenses and your non-economic damages. Financial expenses are obviously any losses with an associated dollar amount, but many watercraft accident victims don’t realize that they can get compensated for non-economic damages, which reflect how their injuries have compromised their quality of life.
These are just a few examples of damages you might be able to demand compensation for in your personal injury claim:
Don’t risk accepting less compensation than you deserve. Instead, work with Siler & Ingber, LLP, and let us fight for the full compensation that will allow you to make the best recovery possible. We know personal injury law, and our experience can bring your case to a successful conclusion, allowing you to move on with your life.
