Boating accidents on North Coast rivers, bays, lakes, and the ocean can result in serious personal injury or death. Janssen Malloy LLP's lawyers have successfully assisted clients who have been injured or who have lost a loved one due to boating accidents. Proof of liability and damages in boating cases requires particular expertise which our attorneys can provide.
An example of a successful boating accident wrongful death case result our firm handled involved a speedboat that crashed over the deck of a moored houseboat on Trinity Lake, killing a retired sheriff’s deputy. The case presented questions of product liability as to the boat’s engine, as well as proof of the negligence of the boat’s operator. We obtained a significant settlement on behalf of the widow and two adult children of the decedent.
