What Damages Can I Recover Following A Boating Accident

You are entitled to damages if a boat operator, passenger, boat owner, manufacturer, or rental company has acted negligently and you became injured. The damages you may recover include the reasonable value of your medical bills, your lost income, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.

Plaintiffs can recover the following damages:

  • costs of medical treatment;
  • pain and suffering;
  • loss of income during recovery;
  • loss of earning capacity;
  • loss of companionship;
  • property damages.

If a close relative was killed in a boating accident, you may recover for the loss of love, comfort, and companionship that was wrongfully taken by that person’s untimely death.
