Tacoma Boating Accidents Lawyer

Our Tacoma boating accident lawyers will work tirelessly for the settlement you deserve.

Our Tacoma Boating Accident Lawyers Don’t Shy Away from Tough Cases

We take pride in helping victims of negligence receive the settlements they deserve. We do not back down from taking on complex cases. With attorneys on our team who previously worked in the insurance industry, we know how many resources an insurer will assign to a case with a potentially large settlement. Without representation on your side in your boating accident case, you will be facing a big disadvantage against a team of insurance adjusters and lawyers. The more resources the other side throws at your case, the harder we will fight to ensure the best potential outcome.

When a Boating Accident Claim Becomes a Wrongful Death Case

According to the Washington State Parks Boating Program, deaths and serious injuries are all possible after a boating accident. Each year, the state investigates several dozen serious boating injury accidents, some of which involve fatalities. Should this have happened in your case, where a loved one suffered a fatality because of the negligence of another boat operator, our wrongful death lawyers are ready to represent you. Understandably, some people are hesitant to file a wrongful death lawsuit. They may not want to relive the accident and the sorrow. We understand this, and our team will treat your case and your loved one’s memory with the compassion and respect you deserve.

Your loved one would not want your family to suffer financially without his or her earning power. You should not have to pay the medical bills from when doctors tried to save your loved one’s life. You should not have to pay the burial costs either. The other boat operator caused the crash and should pay. We will help you receive the reimbursement your family deserves, as well as an emotional trauma settlement.

Common Questions in a Boat Accident Lawsuit

Our Tacoma boating accident lawyers provide representation after any kind of boating accident with injuries. We understand that these cases can produce some confusion for the victims. Circumstances are not always clear after an accident on the water. Here are some of the most common questions our boating accident attorneys receive from clients.

How do we prove negligence in a boating crash?

Certainly, boating accidents create some unusual circumstances for investigators. Trying to determine the exact facts in the case can be challenging. We will interview any witnesses to the crash, seeking to determine what mistakes the other boat operator made. We will hire accident recreation experts if necessary to show negligence. If the other boat operator was drinking alcohol or taking drugs, this is a key piece in building a case of negligence.

What if another boater’s wake caused my accident?

If the other boat operator was creating large wakes in a no-wake zone or was going too fast for conditions, this could be a sign of negligence. Our boating accident attorneys would investigate the facts to determine whether you have grounds to file a personal injury case after this type of accident.

How much can I win in a boating injury lawsuit when the other boater was drinking?

No attorney can guarantee that you’ll win a certain settlement amount after a boating accident with injuries. However, if the other boat operator was violating Washington’s Boating Under the Influence laws, this gives our boating accident lawyers an important piece of evidence to show negligence and to win the case.

Shouldn’t I just settle quickly after my boating accident?

Once you agree to a settlement in a personal injury lawsuit of any kind, the case ends. Should you and your doctor discover lingering or new injuries after settling, you cannot go back and request more money. Our team of boating accident lawyers will take the time to ensure you have a full diagnosis of your injuries. Although we understand your desire to settle quickly, we do not recommend settling until we’re certain of your medical diagnosis.

Do I really need an attorney for a boating accident?

Because of the complexity involved in investigating a boating accident, it can be difficult to prove negligence. Convincing an insurer about your injuries can be challenging, too. Insurers tend not to listen to victims without the help of legal representation. Our team, led by founder Jed Strong, knows the inner workings of insurance companies and their attorneys. We know how to counteract their techniques to deliver the awards our clients deserve.

Trust Your Case to Our Boating Accident Lawyers

After an accident on the water, multiple types of injuries are possible. Having a full diagnosis of the effect of the crash on your body is important to help you develop a recovery plan and try to heal as fully as possible.

For example, it may not seem likely that a victim in a boating accident would suffer a brain injury. Concussions and TBIs (traumatic brain injuries) are common in car crashes, but boats don’t travel at the same speed as motor vehicles. However, when a boat traveling fast hits your boat, causing you fly out of the boat and hit your head on the water, this still can lead to concussion and TBI.

Our brain injury lawyers know how to apply the facts from the boating accident to show how your head injury occurred. We will interview your doctors after your diagnosis to help you determine the severity of your brain injury. Having this information in hand is important for seeking the best possible settlement offer.

Your Life Could Change Forever After a Boating Accident

With or without a brain injury, your life may never be the same after another boater hits your boat. Someone flying through the air and hitting a portion of a boat after being struck by a drunk or speeding boater could suffer a spinal cord injury. With this type of injury, you might never walk again. Your quality of life could see a significant reduction, leaving you unable to enjoy your favorite activities or to work. Your relationship with your family may never be the same.

Our catastrophic injury lawyer has settled cases with life-altering injuries like this for six- and seven-figure settlement amounts. We know how to show the full extent of your injuries. Our team prepares for every case as hard as we can. We go into negotiations with the insurer fully prepared and ready to win the settlement you deserve.

We are not afraid to take catastrophic injury cases to trial if the insurer refuses to negotiate in good faith. We will always have your best interests at heart.

"I would definitely recommend them."

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

What Is the Value of My Case?

The value of an injury case depends upon many factors related to the extent of your injuries and any other losses associated with your claim. You may have medical bills, lost income, costs associated with pain and suffering, among other possible damages. To learn the possible value of your case, contact the team at Strong Law. In a free case evaluation, we’ll let you know how much your case may be worth.

What Are Your Hours?

Strong Law is open five days a week between 9am and 5pm. In addition, we offer after hours return calls, weekend calls, and online chat.

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Call us to know for sure, but a good rule of thumb is when an “accident” that happened to you because of the acts of or misdeeds of another party. Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
