Whether a powerboat collides with a Jet Ski or a sailboat capsizes, the results can be tragic. If you or someone you love was injured by the carelessness of another boater on Smith Mountain Lake, Philpott Lake or elsewhere in Virginia, you may have the right to financial compensation.
The Roanoke boating accident attorneys at GBSR are here to help you understand your rights and obtain the money you need. As the largest firm in Franklin County, we combine big-firm experience with the personal attention and responsiveness you might expect from smaller, boutique firms. Our clients are made to feel at home the minute they walk into our office.
We handle boat injury cases throughout the Smith Mountain Lake and Roanoke Valley area that involve:
- Yachting accidents
- Jet Ski or WaveRunner collisions
- Boating under the influence (BUI)
- Collisions with swimmers or water-skiers
- Other on-the-water injuries
Unique laws come into play on the waterways of Virginia. Just as with car drivers, boat operators must abide by certain safety regulations. Our lawyers understand these laws and how they apply in a personal injury case. We also have the skill to deal with the multiple parties that may be involved, including insurance companies, marinas, boat manufacturers and law enforcement.
