What You Should Know About a Boat Accident

Did you get seriously injured on a boat? Learn what you should know about a boat accident here, then call our Utah attorneys for legal help.

1) Boat Accident Recorded Statement

If you’ve been involved in a boating or watercraft accident in the state of Utah, you’ll probably get a call from the insurance company that represents the other person involved, and they’ll want to take your recorded statement. I recommend that you not give them a recorded statement until you’ve had the opportunity to talk to an attorney. They want to take the recorded statements because they’re trained to get the information that helps their case early on. They try to make your case worse before you know what’s going on with your injuries. Don’t give them a recorded statement without talking to an attorney.

2) Boat Accident Injury Claims

In the state of Utah, if you’ve been injured on the water in some type of watercraft, you need to look at what the other party was doing to determine who was at fault and who bears the responsibility for those injuries. You should find an attorney who has experience in dealing with those types of issues, and you should contact them quickly as it is hard to preserve that evidence if you don’t act on it in an expeditious manner.

3) Boat Accident Liability

If you have been injured in a boating accident or a personal watercraft accident in the state of Utah, you should know that the responsible parties can be the boat owner, the boat driver, or the insurance policies that are carried by those individuals. A lot of times, people have questions about who is responsible when you’re out on the lake.
