Waldorf Boating Accident Attorneys
Millions Recovered for Our Clients
Boating accidents often result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries. Due to the fact that many boating accidents take place on the water, these incidents often lead to fatal drownings. And, sadly, the vast majority of boating accidents could have—and should have—been prevented with proper care and attention.
If you were injured or lost a loved one in a boating accident, Farmer & Klopfer can help. We know that nothing can undo the suffering you have been through, but if your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to simply deal with the resulting medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering on your own. Our Waldorf boating accident lawyers can help you take action against the liable party and seek fair compensation for your damages.
Common Causes of Boating Accidents
As stated above, boating accidents are often preventable, meaning they are caused by someone’s careless, reckless, negligent, or wrongful actions. When this is the case, the at-fault party can be held legally liable for damages.
Some of the most common causes of boating accidents include:
- Inexperienced boat operators
- Operating a watercraft while intoxicated
- Failure to follow navigational rules
- Distracted boat operators/operator inattention
- Failure to keep a proper lookout
- Hazards in the water
- Poor weather/water conditions
- Excessive speed
- Defective parts
- Machinery failure
Because boating is often a recreational activity, many people do not treat it with the same level of care as operating another type of motor vehicle, such as a car or motorcycle. However, boating can be just as dangerous as driving. Operating a boat or personal watercraft while intoxicated, speeding, or failing to pay attention while out on the water is never acceptable—and the consequences can be severe.
Fighting to Hold the Negligent Party Accountable
If you were hit by a careless boater or were otherwise involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our Waldorf boating accident lawyers are ready to help. We have the experience and skill to take on negligent boaters, as well as major insurance companies and their legal teams. Our attorneys can even investigate whether a defective part or product played a role in the accident and/or your injuries and, if so, can fight to hold the liable manufacturer or distributor accountable. We leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of the full, fair compensation you deserve.
Nothing short of miraculous
“Mr. Farmer and his associates go the EXTRA mile for all their clients! It's nice to feel safe at the hands of your attorney and get a great outcome! Every experience I've personally had, as well as watched, has been nothing short of miraculous!! Farmer and staff are who you want on your side!!!”
Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable
“I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”
Thank you, Mr. Farmer, and may God bless you in your future endeavors.
“You and your team have given my family our son back. No amount can adequately compensate for that gift! I can only hope our heart-felt thank-you and 'God bless you' will somehow offset the imbalance.”
A winning team of confident, knowledgeable and successful attorneys
“I am so pleased with the staff at the James F. Farmer firm. They are true professionals, ready and willing to fight on your behalf. When you retain their services, you are joining a winning team of confident, knowledgeable, and successful attorneys, like Mr. Melvin Allen, who helped me. Thank you!!!”
Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with
I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.”
