Injury Lawyers Who Truly Care

We Help Boaters Who Were Injured On The Water

The beautiful lakes and waterways of Virginia are centers of recreational activity, particularly in the summertime. Boats and Jet Skis are common sights on Smith Mountain Lake and Claytor Lake. Unfortunately, boaters often don’t pay attention to the rules of the waterway. As with roads, waterways have specific traffic rules for ensuring the safety of all surface users.

Boating accidents can arise in any number of situations. Collisions, boat fires and Jet Ski or WaveRunner accidents can lead to serious injuries or disabilities. Alcohol is often a factor. And because these watercrafts don’t come with seat belts or extensive safety features, the outcomes can be heart breaking.
