More details about boating and water accident injury law

Boating and water injuries fall into two broad categories: (1) those governed by Illinois state laws of boating and waterways and (2) those governed by federal regulations. U.S. law states that injuries that occur on “navigable waterways” are subject to federal laws.

Navigable waterways are public structures and subject to the ebb and flow of tides, or used for interstate commercial transport. Illinois water laws govern all other types of water injuries.

Dr. Brad Bradshaw’s Law Firm works with vetted Illinois water and boating lawyers to analyze your case and see how to obtain the best recovery for you. Sometimes we can make an argument to sue in state court, where the recovery may be better, and keep the case out of federal court. Experienced lawyers in these watercraft cases can help you determine the best plan of action to maximize your personal and financial recovery. No matter the circumstances of your boating or water accident injury, we have the experience necessary to advise your case successfully. Allied attorneys with Dr. Brad Bradshaw have been successful in many boating and water injury cases, including:

  • propeller injuries
  • jet ski injuries
  • boat launching injuries
  • boat storage injuries
  • boat collision injuries
  • power line over water injuries
  • fishing injuries
  • intoxicated boat captain cases
  • water electrocution injuries

A majority of boating injuries involve smaller watercraft, typically less than 21′ in length. However, Dr. Brad Bradshaw’s Law Firm also advises more significant craft injury cases, including commercial boats. These cases may require a particular type of lawyer, mainly if the injury occurred on a navigable waterway. We can help you find the right “maritime lawyer” in such situations.

Further complicating these types of injuries is a federal law known as the Jones Act. This act applies to offshore injuries to workers. An attorney with thorough knowledge of the Jones Act and how it preempts state law is critical in these cases. Our number one goal at Dr. Brad Bradshaw’s Law Firm is to find you a quality lawyer or team at the lowest reasonable fee to maximize your net recovery.
