Boating Accidents

Each year, Wisconsin residents and visitors to the state enjoy boating on our beautiful lakes. Unfortunately, hundreds of people are injured and some are killed every summer as a result of boating accidents.

These accidents may also result in unpaid medical bills, lost wages and permanent disabilities. The attorneys at Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., with offices in Appleton and Green Bay, are able to recover compensation to cover these costs and more. We also handle accidents involving personal watercraft such as a Jet Ski.

Because some of our boat accident lawyers are boating enthusiasts themselves, they are familiar with the laws that govern all facets of boating and boating safety. We investigate these accidents ourselves and collect evidence and eyewitness information that will strengthen your case.

If you are involved in an accident, call our office to further discuss the facts. We can assess your case and give you a good idea of what you can expect as an outcome. Call 920-432-3883.

The most common causes of boating accidents are:

  • Operator inattention, careless/reckless operation
  • Operator inexperience
  • Operating at an unsafe speed
  • Failure to have a proper lookout
  • Operating under the influence

Our Green Bay boat accident attorneys don't stop at the easy answers. We find numerous ways to get our clients the maximum amount allowed.

We offer a free consultation in which we can review the facts and give you an honest assessment of your case. Call 920-432-3883 or email us to schedule an appointment. Our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay for our services unless we successfully recover a settlement or court judgment for you.
