Boating Accidents

Minnesota is the State of 10,000 lakes, making it one that sees a lot of boaters on its waters. Unfortunately, what sometimes turns into a good time ends up resulting in tragic injuries or even death and there are times that these accidents are caused by the negligence of someone else.

At Reitan Law Office, PLLC we have decades of experience helping clients in their personal injury cases and other legal matters. When you work with us, you will work with an experienced personal injury lawyer who will get to the bottom of what happened to you and work hard to ensure the responsible party has to pay.

Experience In All Types Of Boating Accidents

There are different types of boating accidents that occur on Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. They include:

  • Jet ski accidents
  • Swimmer collisions
  • Drowning
  • Boating while intoxicated (BWI)
  • Mechanical defects and malfunctions
  • Collisions with stationary objects
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Collisions with other boats

When you have experienced one of these accident types due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for past, present, and future medical expenses so the financial burden is relieved and you can focus on your healing.

Striving For The Best Outcome In Your Personal Injury Case

It is our goal to achieve the best possible outcome in your personal injury case. Your Minnesota personal injury lawyer will look at every element of what happened from mechanical defects to operator error. If it is a mechanical defect, then every party responsible for allowing that faulty part to be in the boat can be held accountable. This is an example of a case where you can have multiple defendants, which means you can receive compensation from every responsible individual and/or company.

It is our goal to make sure you receive the most compensation possible so that you do not have to worry about money. The last thing you want to worry about are expenses when you are trying to get better. Getting better can mean going back to work and/or having an improved quality of life regardless of the injuries. The compensation means having less stress to deal with throughout that healing process.

If the defendant is charged with a crime as a result of the action, that is a separate court matter from the personal injury case. It is possible for a person to be convicted in criminal court and still have to pay for damages in a civil case.
