Oakland Boating Accident Lawyers

Prominent San Francisco Bay Area Boat and Jet Ski Accident Lawyers

The San Francisco Bay Area and other water ways in California offers some of the best water sport opportunities in the nation. On any given day, thousands of boaters, water skiers and recreational watercraft users enjoy the Bay or inland waterways. Unfortunately, many recreational boaters and jet ski riders don't follow the safety precautions necessary to help avoid accidents. Heavy drinking, reckless behavior and inattention lead to a significant number of serious accidents on the water, docks and loading ramps.

We Know the Laws Pertaining to Coastal, Bay and Inland Waterways

Lyle C. Cavin, Jr. & Associates is recognized as one of the nation's preeminent maritime law firms. We use our experience and knowledge of admiralty law to apply intelligent, effective strategies for injured boaters seeking damages in civil court, as well. If you have been injured in a recreational boat or watercraft accident, it makes sense to talk to a member of our experienced personal injury trial team.

We know how to investigate the facts surrounding the accident and can prepare the strongest case possible for a maximum settlement or jury award. We will take care of every detail of your claim or lawsuit, including:

  • Gathering physical evidence and interviewing eye-witnesses at the scene
  • Gathering medical records and working with your doctor to determine the extent of medical care
  • Teaming up with independent medical specialists and other experts to reconstruct the accident and determine the full extent of your compensation needs
  • Applying creative, intelligent strategies to prepare your case to win in court
  • Negotiating maximum compensation, while permitting you to stay in control of the final decision to settle or proceed to court
  • Trying your case in front of a jury, if a fair settlement is unattainable
  • Handling all matters related to property damage claims

Throughout your boat accident personal injury or wrongful death claim, your lawyer will work directly with you, while also relying on the experience and knowledge of a team of experienced, skillful trial lawyers. Many of our attorneys have more than 20 years of personal injury trial experience. Your attorney and our staff will stay in close contact with you throughout your case, in order to keep you fully informed about defense strategies and judges' decisions. We have a policy of returning calls and e-mails within the same business day, whenever possible. While we handle the details of reaching the best possible outcome, you will always remain in complete control of the final decisions regarding a proposed settlement or proceeding to trial.
