Help For Those Injured On One Of Minnesota’s 10,000 Lakes
Minnesota is the state of 10,000 lakes and that is why it has one of the highest boating accident rates in the U.S. With so many people vacationing in the state during the summer to enjoy its boating and fishing industry, there is no question why.
From our offices in Brainerd and Sartell, we represent people injured in boat accidents on lakes and rivers throughout Northern and Central Minnesota. If you can’t come to us, attorney Stephen Gabrielson may make arrangements to come to you.
If you have been in a boating accident that was caused by the negligence of someone else, then you may have the right to seek legal compensation from them through a personal injury claim. Gabrielson Law Offices, Ltd., will provide you with a free consultation so you can learn about your rights, options and about the process.
Aggressive Representation To Help You Get The Compensation You Deserve
A boating accident can result in lifelong injuries and the accident itself can be traumatizing. Sometimes the injuries can be broken bones and other times the injuries can include the head, spine, loss of limbs and paralysis. Boating accidents have also been known to end in death and this means that the family of the deceased victim can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.
It is a rule of thumb that boat drivers have to be as vigilant as motorists. Just because the vehicle is on the water doesn’t mean that it is okay to drink and drive a boat in a reckless fashion without any regard to people and obstacles that may be in the way. Boats have to be driven with care and in regards to others on the water. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen that way.
A Lawyer With Extensive Experience — Making A Difference For The Injured
Our highly experienced Minnesota personal injury attorney has experience with all types of boating accidents. These accidents include:
- Boating while intoxicated (BWI) or under the influence of drugs
- Negligent and reckless operation of a boat
- Water sport accidents
- Boat manufacturing defects
- Poor servicing records or lack of maintenance
- Collision with swimmers
- Collision with stationary objects
When you are left with a serious injury from a boating accident, you may be confused and wondering why such a thing had to happen to you. It didn’t have to happen and that is why the responsible party needs to be held accountable. Sometimes multiple parties can be responsible.
The compensation that you may be able to recover includes:
- Medical treatment
- Loss of income
- Child care costs
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and suffering
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Other related costs
