Determining the value of a boating accident case can be difficult early on. The medical bills need to be looked at, the medical treatment needs to be looked at, and the amount of additional medical bills that will be incurred need to be looked at. Any time missed from work needs to be looked at. You also need to consider things that might prevent you from doing the things you really like, and what limitations you will have in the future. All of those are components that calculate the damage for a boating accident.
