Many boat accidents that occur on non-navigable lakes and streams are covered by state law. When an accident happens on navigable water, the big question legally is whether the owner of the vessel is entitled to limit his liability to the value of the vessel.
For this reason, it is absolutely essential that you speak with an experienced boat accident attorney at the Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm after a serious pleasure craft accident to determine your legal rights.
Summertime and holiday recreational pleasure craft, water skiing and Jet Ski accidents often involve an intoxicated boater. Louisiana law provides for punitive or exemplary damages for victims of boating accidents caused by drunk drivers, even when operating a sporting vessel. Our legal team holds drunk boaters and their insurers accountable, in negotiations and in court.
