Boating Accidents in Washington
Retain a Seattle Personal Injury Lawyer
Seattle’s waterways are a prime area for recreation and enjoying
the beauty of the environment. When one is out on the water, it is not
expected that a dangerous boating accident can occur. Unfortunately, many
boaters believe that a day on the water must include the consumption of
alcohol, which can lead to some deadly accidents on the water. An impaired
watercraft operator is as much of a danger on the water as a drunk driver
is on the road. Alcohol consumption is one of the main factors in many
boating accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating
accident, it is crucial that you contact an attorney without delay.
Common Types of Injuries
The injuries that can occur in boating accidents can be very serious. Brain
and head injuries can occur, and these injuries can have devastating effects
on an individual. When a person is unconscious and has been under water,
there are often serious effects on the brain, due to the deprivation of
oxygen. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a boating accident,
Law Office of J.D. Smith, PLLC can assist you. It is important that you
contact an attorney at the Law Office of J.D. Smith, PLLC as quickly as

Dealing with the Aftermath
After an injury or even a death from a boating accident, it can be difficult
to face any legal situation. However, this may be very important to your
family and your future. When a loved one who has been a provider for the
family is injured, it can affect your ability to pay the bills, the mortgage
and every other part of existence. Take this problem and give it to the
Law Office of J.D. Smith, PLLC who are exceptional
personal injury lawyers.
