Boating Accident Attorneys in Houma, LA

Boating is at the center of both work and recreation in South Louisiana, but unfortunately accidents can occur on the water that result in life-changing injuries. If your boating injuries were the result of another party’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit and receive compensation for factors such as medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation services. 

Accidents can occur as a result of incidents including (but not limited to):

  • Defective designs
  • Operators who are improperly trained or do not understand navigational rules
  • Operators who fail to carry safety equipment
  • Overloading and overcrowding
  • Collisions with other watercrafts
  • Operating at high speeds
  • Passenger ejection due to poor weather conditions or improper operation
  • Failure to keep a lookout when a passenger was tubing or skiing
  • Operators who are boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Boating in improper weather conditions or hazardous waters
  • Operators who fail to follow the “rules of the road”

Boating accident claims can be difficult to navigate. Equipped with decades of experience in cases involving injuries sustained from boating incidents, our Waitz & Downer team is ready to navigate you and your loved ones through the legal burdens of an injury that occurred on the water.
