Kansas City Boat Accident Lawyer

Kansas and Missouri offer plenty of opportunities for boating enthusiasts. Blue Springs Lake, Longview Lake, Kill Creek Park, and Smithville Lake are some of the most popular destinations for avid boaters in the Kansas City region. While most days on the water don’t end in tragedy, a boating accident is always a possibility. Negligent boat operators and unsafe vessels increase this risk. If you were recently involved in a Kansas City boating accident that resulted in injuries, property damage, or a loved one’s death, contact the experienced accident attorneys at Wendt Law Firm P.C.

Assigning Liability After a Boating Accident

While some boat accidents stem from acts of God or poor weather conditions, most result from human error. An operator may have broken one of Kansas City’s boating laws, creating an unsafe condition and increasing the risk of a collision. Boaters may operate their vessels drunk or under the influence of drugs. In other cases, an issue at a manufacturing company may lead to a dangerously defective boat part. When a boating accident turns into legal action, the first step in pursuing compensation is assigning fault. Here’s how our law firm goes about this process:

  1. We listen to your story. During a free consultation at our Kansas City office or over the phone, a lawyer will listen to your boating accident story carefully. We will ask questions to help narrow down the cause of the incident, such as who else was involved and how the other party acted. You’ll get to know our lead attorneys and learn how we may be able to help you recover for your damages.
  2. We offer to represent you. During insurance claim settlement negotiations and/or civil actions, a lawyer can make all the difference. If we believe your case has merit based on what you tell us, we’ll offer to represent you from this point forward. As your personal injury lawyers, we’ll list your legal opportunities and handle settlement negotiations to your greatest advantage.
  3. We investigate your case. If you agree to retain our firm, we’ll begin our investigation right away. This may include revising the site of the crash, looking at photos, interviewing eyewitnesses, inspecting the boat(s), and gleaning information about other parties involved. Our firm will also gather medical records and police reports regarding your accident, if applicable.

After an in-depth legal investigation, our team will name one or more defendants. There may be two or more parties to blame for what happened. For example, another boater may have negligently crashed into you, but a defective boat design may have contributed to your injuries. Our firm can help you pursue compensation from all at-fault parties. The first step toward payment for your medical costs, property damage, and other losses is just a phone call away.
