Boat Accidents in Michigan

Comments (0)

Michigan is famous for our Great Lakes and hundreds of smaller lakes that proved great recreation for boaters, jet skiers, and swimmers during the summertime.  Watersports are great fun, but they can also be very dangerous when boaters drive unsafely and recklessly.  The injuries from boating accidents are often catastrophic and can result in death.

In 2007, nearly 700 Americans died and over 5,000 were injured in pleasure-boating accidents.  These include motorcrafts, jet skis, sailboats, houseboats, and even inflatables.  Many accidents were caused by intoxicated, inexperienced, and reckless drivers.  Others were due to defective steering and engines on boats, as well as boaters simply disobeying boating regulations.

Michigan boating accident victims do have legal rights to compensation for injuries suffered in a boat or watersport related accident.  Our Michigan boating accident lawyers represent victims of these accidents in civil lawsuits for their damages.  To learn your legal rights after a Michigan boating accident, call our lawyers at (800) 606-1717 for a Free and Confidential Consultation.
