Frequently Asked Questions about Boating Accidents in New York

What should I do after a boating accident?

It doesn’t matter what kind of boating accident you have been involved in. Your first priority should be to ensure that you’re safe. You can then think of what you should do next. Some steps to take after a boat accident include:

— Reporting the accident to the United States Coast Guard. The US Coast Guard will provide emergency rescue services if needed. They will also prepare an accident report that will include what they believe was the cause of the accident and the extent of damage caused. This report will be a vital piece of evidence when making a claim.
— Document the scene of the accident as well as your injuries. Take videos or photos of the damage as well as your injuries. These photos and videos will be invaluable evidence when you’re seeking compensation for your injuries.
— Seek medical attention for your injuries. This applies even if your injuries seem minor. Some serious injuries such as concussions and whiplash only become apparent after a few hours, days, or weeks.
— Hire an experienced New York boating accident lawyer. This will improve your chances of recovering fair compensation for your damages.
