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, the 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.

  • Showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck

    “James Farmer and his team exceeded all expectations! I had a very serious criminal case and his firm was recommended to me by a family member. I was incarcerated during this time and he and his associate Stephanie came to update me on multiple occasions on the progress of my case. They were not only professional but the amount of time and energy they put into my case showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck! They prepared for trial, but in the end was able to work out a plea deal that did not include any jail time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney.
