Washington requires a boater involved in an accident to stop their boat immediately and assist the injured or anyone in danger. The exception to this rule is if stopping would endanger the boater or their vessel. Under certain circumstances, the operator must submit a written accident report to a law enforcement agency.

A report must be filed in accidents resulting in a death, serious injuries, a missing person, or if there is over $2000 in property damage. In cases of death or disappearance, you must file the report within 48 hours. In all other situations, the filing must be within ten days. If the operator cannot file the report, the owner of the vessel must do it.

It is difficult to estimate how much your claim is worth without first knowing the details of the accident. We can assess the potential monetary recovery when you schedule a free consultation to discuss the facts of your case and your injuries.

The leading cause of boating accidents in Washington State is Boating Under the Influence of alcohol or intoxicating substances (BUI). While it is strictly illegal to operate a boat, jet ski or other vessel while under the influence of alcohol, it is a common problem that often leads to accidents. It is important to exercise good judgement and strict safety measures when you are enjoying time on the water.

It can be against your best interest to take the first offer from an insurance company. Profit is their main focus so settling with you for as little as possible is their goal. Insurance companies will often try to settle early and quickly, sometimes before you can realize the extent of your injuries. It is wise to seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney who can evaluate your case. We know what your claim is worth and how to negotiate with insurance companies to make sure you are fairly compensated for all of your injuries.

We look forward to meeting you and to discussing your case. We take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and get to know you in a friendly, no-pressure setting. We will also want to learn about your accident and any related injuries. It is often helpful for you to bring any documentation you currently have so we can gain a more thorough understanding of the situation.
