About the Investigation:

Were You Injured in a Boating Accident?


Siri & Glimstad attorneys are evaluating claims from people who have been injured in boating accidents.

What Should You Do In the Event of a Boating Accident?

No one expects they are going to be involved in an accident when they head out for a day of fun on the water, but the reality is that you cannot control the actions of other people even if you take every precaution.

While it can be hard to know what to do in the shock of the moment, having a plan in case something happens can help you know what to do in the moment.

Do Not Leave the Scene of the Accident

Call 911 and wait for emergency services to arrive.  It’s best to have them fill out a police report of what occurred while it is fresh in your mind. Answer their questions honestly and to the best of your recollection.

Seek Medical Attention Immediately

Sometimes it can take a day or two to really feel the effects of an injury sustained in any accident.  It’s best to get checked out right away for the best possible medical outcome. If you delay seeking treatment, the other party’s insurance company may try to claim that the delay means you weren’t actually hurt. Also, for nonemergent care it may take a while to get an appointment, further adding to the delay. For all of these reasons, don’t wait until the pain is intolerable. Seek medical attention immediately after the accident.

Report the Accident to Your Insurance Company, BUT…

…do NOT give a statement or sign anything they send you.  Do not cash any checks they send you or give them permission to access your medical records or speak to your doctors.

And Maybe Most Importantly, Talk to an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

An experienced personal injury attorney will guide you in what you need to do to maximize the chances of recovering any losses you suffer. You could potentially win economic damages such as past and future medical bills, lost earnings, and of course damage to your vehicle. You may also be compensated for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. The actual compensation a plaintiff is eligible to receive depends on the specific details of their case.
