Wisconsin Boating Accident Lawyer

There are 635,000 boats registered in Wisconsin. On any given weekend in the summer, boats registered in Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa add hundreds of thousands to this total. In 2009, there were 16 fatalities in Wisconsin due to boating accidents. Eighty-one percent of boat operators in accidents had not taken a safety course.* Litigation over maritime and admiralty accidents may arise in many situations, not just recreational boat rides.

Personal injuries, property damage or other injuries can arise from a variety of situations, including:

  • A recreational watercraft collision
  • Property damage from improper handling of shipped goods
  • Deaths arising from inadequate safety measures on cruise ships

Oftentimes, regardless of the circumstances, accidents involving maritime law can be unique and complex. Accidents occurring on a navigable body of water entirely within a state's borders may only involve state law, while accidents occurring on bodies of water between bordering states may involve state or federal law. Accidents occurring out at sea may involve international law.
