Boating Injuries

Many people travel to Clearlake, Lake Pillsbury, Lake Mendocino, and other area waterways and for fishing, recreation and relaxation. A pleasant trip to the lake, however, can turn tragic when negligent people are operating boats in the area. If you or someone close to you has suffered an injury in a boating accident on a California lake, river or coastal waterway, you have the right to pursue compensation for your losses.

Pano Stephens has significant experience handling boating injury cases for clients in Ukiah and throughout Mendocino, Lake and Sonoma counties. He is here to help you pursue maximum compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other hardships.

Negligence On California Waters

In handling boating injury cases, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the accident to determine the causes of injuries and to identify liable parties. Our investigations often uncover evidence of negligence on the part of boat operators and other parties. Common causes of boating injuries include:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless boating
  • Boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Negligent operation of a Jet Ski or other personal watercraft
  • Failure to observe boating regulations

Boating accidents can result in serious, life-threatening injuries. All too often, accidents in the water can lead to drowning accidents. Whatever the circumstances of your case, we are here to stand up for your rights.
