We represent clients in the Southern California area who were injured, or lost a loved one in a boating accident or boating collision.  Our lawyers are experienced boaters and understand the background of how boating injury occurs when the operator is negligent.

Many factors can contribute to a boating accident either on a privately owned vessel, a personal watercraft (jet ski) or even a ferry. Some of these factors include:

  • Driver error
  • Driver inexperience
  • Driving while intoxicated
