What type of information should I collect if I am involved in a boating accident?
If someone’s involved in a boating accident, or any other accident for that matter, it’s always important to preserve all the evidence. That’s why we ask our clients to get us involved sooner rather than later. Oftentimes, involving any accident, you could have witnesses and those witnesses could leave the state, could leave the country, could change their phone numbers. If it’s a motor vehicle accident, you could have skid marks on the road that fade away. Also, things get repaired. In motor vehicle accidents, the vehicles usually get repaired. In boating accidents, the boats are repaired. That’s valuable evidence for attorneys to determine who is at fault. Oftentimes in cases, fault is one of the most important issues, so we need that evidence.
