Boating Accidents

Boating Accidents in Reno, Nevada

We'll Review Your Case for Free: (775) 573-0229

While boating is an incredibly fun activity, this can change quickly if an accident occurs. Boating accident victims can suffer from serious injuries that include severe burns, traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, loss of limbs, hypothermia, and more.

If you have been hurt in a boating accident, seek medical attention immediately and contact our team at the Law Offices of Steven J. Klearman & Associates.

Our consultations are always free for potential clients. Under Nevada law, boating regulations include:

  • Anyone born in or after 1983 must complete a boating education course in order to operate a boat with more than 15 horsepower
  • It is illegal to operate a water vessel while intoxicated
  • It is illegal to operate a motorboat in excess of the posted speed, and also illegal to create a wake in a no-wake zone
  • It is illegal to operate a watercraft when weather conditions are deemed "dangerous"

Why You Need a Reno Personal Injury Lawyer

Causes of boating accidents can range from operator inattention and speeding to operator inexperience and defective boat parts. Whatever the cause, we can help you conduct thorough investigations to identify the liable parties.

Because there will be no obvious signs of collision (such as skid marks or a debris trail), you will need to work with a team who knows where to look, and how to look for evidence.

If we find that another party's negligence played a large role in your accident, we can file a claim on your behalf.

Before you accept an offer from an insurance company, remember that they are likely trying to cut their costs and minimize their losses.

At the Law Offices of Steven J. Klearman & Associates, our Reno accident lawyers are committed to obtaining the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law. We know how much this accident has set you back, and we want to see that you are compensated for your medical bills, lost income, lost property, and pain and suffering.
