Paducah Boating Accident Attorneys
Aiding Kentucky Locals in Their Time of Need
Here in Kentucky, and in the surrounding area of Southern Illinois and Northwest Tennessee, we have many beautiful lakes and rivers to enjoy on warm summer days. Folks like to take out their houseboat, pontoon, ski boat, bass boat, or jet skis for a day of recreation on the lake. However, just like motor vehicles, boats, and other personal watercraft can cause accidents and injuries if people do not operate them safely. Unfortunately, many of these accidents end in fatalities or serious injuries. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a boating or jet ski accident, call Katz Law. Our boating accident attorneys in Paducah have handled a variety of different boating accident claims and have recovered millions for clients so they can put their lives back together and make as complete a recovery as possible.
Kentucky’s beautiful lakes and rivers include Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, Lake Cumberland, Reelfoot Lake, Nolin River Lake, the Mississippi River, the Cumberland River, and the Ohio River, among others. Because the water is open to all tourists and locals alike, accidents are bound to happen, causing injuries.
Since 1998, our team has handled the following types of accidents that have resulted from using boats:
- Passenger falls
- Capsize accidents
- Boat collisions
- Collisions with commercial vessels
- Reckless boating
- Boating under the influence (BUI)
Depending on the nature of the boating accident, injuries can range from minor to catastrophic, and include bruises and abrasions, sprains and fractures, broken or crushed limbs, spinal cord and neck injuries, paralysis, internal bleeding, and head and brain trauma. Drowning is, of course, always a possibility whenever individuals are near or in a body of water.
