Boating accidents often occur because of negligence and can result in serious and deadly injuries. Boating accidents can occur on small boats as well as large cruise ships, navy vessels, or maritime.

A boating accident is always frightening no matter what the circumstances.  They are especially dangerous since the threat of drowning exists. When a boating injury accident occurs, a thorough investigation and evaluation of its causes by an experienced legal team is the best way to proceed.

The Law Office of Stephen H. Frankel is well versed in maritime law. Our attorneys have an excellent understanding of New York personal injury law as well as Federal Maritime law.

Although jet skis can provide hours of fun, they can be extremely dangerous in the hands of a negligent, inexperienced, and/or intoxicated driver. A Jet Skier is more likely to get hurt than any other type of watercraft. The injuries sustained in a Jet Ski accident or collision can be severe. Some of these injuries include but are not limited to: drowning, death, carbon monoxide poisoning, burns, amputations, hypothermia, head injuries, disfigurement, or situations where someone is ejected from the Jet Ski, which can cause a soft tissue injury or broken bones.
