New Jersey Boat Accident Lawyers
Helping Clients Who Have Suffered Injuries In Boating Accidents
With more than 100 miles of beachfront, the New Jersey shoreline is a magnet for recreational activities of all types — boating, sailing, fishing, jet skiing, wave running, and parasailing included. And while each of these activities is capable of being tremendously enjoyable, each of them also poses a unique danger of serious personal injury or death and can involve complex legal and safety issues.

- Drunk driving
- Boat malfunctions
- Vessel defects
- Inexperienced watercraft operators
Any injury that occurs on or with a boat, yacht, ship, ferry, or personal watercraft (Jet-ski, wave runner, etc.) is considered a boating accident. The general rule of law in boating accidents holds that it is the boat owner’s or operator’s duty to exercise the highest degree of care in order to prevent injuries and death to others.
In these cases, there is simply no substitute for having an attorney that knows how to maneuver through the twists and turns of the legal system, who can handle the insurance red tape, and who understands the strategies defendants’ attorneys will use to deny your claim a NJ personal injury attorney committed to protecting your interests and to obtaining the best possible results on your behalf.
