Michigan Drunk Boating Accident Attorneys

On a long summer weekend out with friend on a busy lake, it is all too easy to forget the harm a boat can do. Add alcohol and party atmosphere into the mix, and the potential for dangerous and irresponsible actions leading to serious injury only increases. The reality is that thousands of people across Michigan are injured or killed in boating accidents every year.

Our highly experienced trial lawyers work closely with clients to help you hold the right people responsible for the pain and injury they cause.

Ann Arbor Intoxicated Boater Injury Attorney

Boating accidents can cause serious injury or lead to wrongful death for those who suffer, and because there is not as much law enforcement involving BUI's people are far more likely to be intoxicated or impaired while driving. If you or a loved one has suffered in a boating accident involving alcohol, we can work to help you recover the compensation you are owed for:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medication
  • Rehabilitation
  • Long-term care
  • Lost wages
  • Disability
  • Diminished earnings potential

Are You Entitled to No Fault Benefits for Your Accident?

If your accident occurred while your boat was still connected to a car, such as during the towing, moving launch or landing of a watercraft, then you may also be eligible for no-fault benefits. Additionally, if you were skiing, tubing or on another towable object and were injured as the result of the driver's negligence, it may also be possible to recover compensation.

Just as a drunk driver on the road irresponsibly puts people at increased risk, boaters who have been drinking put others in just as much danger. What is different is that the mentality of boating is often one where alcohol is not only accepted but encouraged, and so the possibility of a BUI related accident is that much greater.
