Bamberg Boating Accident Lawyers
Bakari Sellers- Attorney

Boating is a way of life for South Carolinians across the state. From the Edisto River near Bamberg to other waterways that cover the state, boating is enjoyed nearly every day.

While the past time is often practiced responsibly, the significant risks that come with boats cannot be denied. In the event you are injured in a boat accident, a personal injury lawyer from Strom Law Firm will be there to help.

In 2018, the Coast Guard counted 4,145 accidents in the US, resulting in 633 deaths, 2,511 injuries, and approximately $46 million dollars of damage to property. There were all results of recreational boating accidents. Many of the accidents were caused by boaters who were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If you or a loved one were involved in a boating accident or any other watercraft accident, the skilled and experienced boating accident lawyers at Strom Law Firm are available to assist you in recovering compensation. Call 803-252-4800 for a free consultation.

What Types of Injuries Result from Boat Accidents?

Boating accidents often cause serious personal injury and, often, death. The US Coast Guard reports that South Carolina’s most common cause of death in a boat accident is drowning after being thrown overboard. Away from the coast, South Carolina’s Department of Natural Resources usually responds to accidents and conducts investigations involving catastrophic injury or death caused by a boating accident. There are many other significant injuries that a Bamberg boater might suffer from as the result of a boating accident. These include:

Who Can Be Held Accountable for Injuries Suffered in Boat Crashes?

Bamberg boaters are often found liable for causing personal injury, child injury and deaths in a boat accident. Examples of these times include:

  • The operator was inattentive due to his/her phone or others on the boat.Bamberg Boating Accident Lawyers
  • The vessel had mechanical issues that the operator or owner ignored.
  • The boater was intoxicated at the time of the accident.
  • The boater was moving too fast, causing the accident.
  • Boaters who are inexperienced.

Types of Damages You Might Recover If A Boating Injury Occurs

Compensation that might be recovered following injuries in a boat accident is similar to those recoverable after any other accident. Potential compensation, which a lawyer can help in recovering, includes reimbursement for:

  • medical costs
  • costs associated with a permanent disability
  • pain and suffering
  • lost wages and income
  • loss of consortium
  • loss of future earning capacity

Who is responsible for paying for the mistakes of a careless boat operator?

Boaters in Bamberg and all across the state are not required to carry insurance. However, in case of an accident, every boat operator or owner should certainly carry liability insurance.

Moreover, if you suffered injuries in a boat accident, sometimes your own health insurance company might refuse to pay for your medical expenses if the injuries fall into a gap in your coverage.

In the case you are hurt in a boating accident, it can be beneficial to seek and retain an accident lawyer. In some situations, boat operators and large insurance companies intentionally avoid the payment of claims. Having an attorney from Strom Law Firm on your side can help protect you from this.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire A Bamberg Boating Accident Lawyer Following a Watercraft Accident?

Hiring the personal injury lawyers at Strom Law Firm will not cost you anything until we collect compensation for your injuries. We generally operate on a payment method called a “contingent fees.” These fees mean that we only get paid if you get paid. After securing compensation on your behalf, we generally collect a set percentage of your settlement or judgment, which is set forth in a contract at the start of representation, as well as payment for any costs we may have extended during the case. Expenses pile up after a boating accident injury, and you do not need us adding to those expenses. Contact an attorney at our office today to allow us to get to work for you as soon as possible.

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
