Our firm is the one to turn to when you need a trial attorney as a boating accident victim. Many perfectly safe, law-abiding drivers on the road change their behavior when they get behind the wheel of a boat. Being out on the open water evokes a sense of freedom and a lack of responsibility, causing people to act irresponsibly and drive their boat any way they want. Unfortunately, this lack of responsibility often results in tragedy. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Maryland boating accident, take the time to speak with an experienced lawyer about your rights and your legal options for recovery. Contact the offices of Sussman & Simcox today to arrange your free consultation.
Boating Accident Claims in Maryland
Going out for a good time on a boat should result in a fun experience for all involved, but that’s sometimes not the case. Maritime law or negligence law may apply to your boating accident on the Potomac River, near Gaithersburg, Bethesda, Clarksburg, Germantown, Hagerstown, or Rockville, MD, or on the Chesapeake Bay or one of its many tributaries. You need a knowledgeable and experienced trial lawyer to examine the facts and circumstances of your case to determine the best course of action. With more than 20 years of experience each in the state and federal courts of Maryland, our attorneys Karen Sussman and Howard Simcox have developed a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of Maryland’s negligence law and maritime law. The boating accident victims we represent benefit from the fact that we’ve defended insurance companies for years and can offer keen insights into the way they evaluate and defend these claims. That knowledge helps us to plan our strategies accordingly and get you what you deserve.
How a Boat Accident Lawyer Can Help
Our experienced and compassionate attorneys handle personal injury and maritime claims. We have a firm understanding of the Maryland laws and can establish who should be held liable for your losses, depending on the type of accident and the body of water in which your accident occurred. If you fail to file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations for personal injuries, you may not be able to recover compensation for your injuries. Boating operators may be considered negligent for a number of circumstances, including hitting a large wave or wake at an excessive speed, choosing to navigate in heavy weather, operating at high speeds, failing to have safety equipment on board, colliding with other boats or fixed objects, overcrowding or overloading the vessel, and more. Our experienced attorneys can also assist you if your case involves boating under the influence, reckless and careless operation, or a jet ski accident.
