Boating is a great way to have fun, and there are hundreds of lakes in our part of Michigan that are wonderful for fishing, water skiing, swimming and just splashing around.
Unfortunately, our lakes are also the site of many serious injuries.
Accidents can involve any kind of watercraft — privately owned boats, cruise boats, pontoons, canoes and personal craft like Jet Skis. Boats collide, boaters get drunk and reckless, people fall overboard and drown, swimmers are struck by boats, people are cut by propellers, boats catch fire — many different scenarios can lead to injuries, the worst of which are fatal.
At David W. Brauer, PLLC, we take cases for people who were injured on the water through no fault of their own, or family members who lost a loved one because of an accident.
Sometimes boats that are operated by businesses — commercial fisheries, tour companies, rental companies and others — are involved in accidents on the water. When this happens we move quickly to preserve evidence of the accident in boat logbooks and other records. We look for evidence of poor boat maintenance, untrained or unlicensed pilots, poor signage and dangerous products.
Businesses operating on our lakes must be held accountable for the injuries they contribute to.
Our attorneys accept no payment from you until we produce results for you with a positive judgment.
