Discuss Your Case With An Experienced Northern New Jersey Attorney
Founded in 1936, Breslin & Breslin has a long track record of individualized attention to client needs and success in the resolution of severe injury claims through negotiated settlements or trial verdicts. Our lawyers have a statewide reputation for thorough investigation of the facts, sound execution of legal strategies and careful attention to the details of a damages claim.
In a boat accident case, this means that we get witness statements, examine police reports and inspect the boats involved in the mishap. We look for answers to such questions as the following:
- Is this a case of drunk boating?
- Was the boat seaworthy and properly equipped?
- Did a design or manufacturing defect play a role in the accident?
- If the operator was underage or inexperienced, was there proper supervision?
- What factors did weather or water conditions play in the accident?
- Will there be any problem reaching liability insurance to cover the victim’s losses?
Our lawyers represent people injured in boating accidents involving vessels ranging from Jet Skis or kayaks to oceangoing cabin cruisers. No matter what the specific circumstances of your accident might be, you will find our attorneys and staff easy to talk to, quick to return your calls, and helpful in resolving any problems that might come up while you are recovering from your injuries.
