Michigan is full of lakes, rivers, and streams. Residents all across the state take to the water for recreation and commercial reasons. But sometimes accidents happen. When you are injured on the water you need an attorney who knows the ins and outs of boat accident litigation and can help you get the recovery you need.

Personal Boat Accident Injuries

If you are hurt when your boat hits something - from a dock or pier to another boat - you will need help covering your medical expenses. Unlike in an auto accident, your medical expenses will be covered first by your medical insurance. That means you can expect to pay out of pocket for your deductible and co-pays.
If your accident isn't your fault - for example if another boat hit you, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the other boater to make up those expenses. You may also be able to recover for your pain and suffering and other damages based on the other boat driver's negligence. Talk one of the experienced boat accident attorneys at Christensen Law to find out if your injuries could be eligible for recovery.

Repairing Your Boat

The damage done to your boat may also be covered by your insurance. If your boat is a simple kayak or fishing boat, you may have decided not to insure it separately. In that case, replacing your boat after a boating accident will be covered by your house insurance. The policy may have a cap on replacement costs and could also have a high deductible before it kicks in, though, so review your insurance policy carefully before taking to the water.
