Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys are professionals who have many years of experience in representing injured clients. We know the right questions to ask to get to the heart of what really happened during your boating accident. The most important thing for us to do in the beginning stages of your case is to investigate whether another party is responsible for your injuries and the subsequent effect they have had on your lifestyle. To do this, we will need to see medical reports, a copy of the accident report if there was one and interview other passengers or witnesses to the boating accident.
By investigating liability, this helps us to establish your claim and set up the expectation that you deserve to be compensated for how the accident has affected your life. If your lawsuit against the other party is successful, you could receive a monetary award to help pay for your lost wages and medical care. In the event that a willful disregard for your safety can be proven, you may also be entitled to receive an award for punitive damages. This is intended to acknowledge your suffering while punishing the other party for wrongdoing at the same time.
