Fresno Personal Injury Attorney


California offers many wonderful places and ways to get out on the water, whether fishing, swimming, snorkeling, waterskiing, sailing, or motor boating. But add alcohol, negligence, inattention, incompetence, faulty equipment, or a host of other possible complications, and unfortunate accidents and injuries can result. If your injuries or those of a family member were the fault of someone else, you have the right under the law to seek compensation for damages.

Gerald Schwab, an experienced California personal injury attorney, stands ready to recover those damages for you. Call him right away.

Boating accidents injure and/or kill thousands of people each year, mostly because boat operators underestimate the dangers of watercraft as compared to cars or simply don’t understand the nautical “rules of the road” and safety laws. The most common types of boating injuries are related to slipping and falling, drowning and oxygen deprivation, and

crashes. Boating accidents are typically caused by

  • Operator inattention
  • Operator inexperience
  • Excessive speed
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Improper loading and overloading
  • Not using safety equipment such as life jackets

If someone else’s negligence caused your or your family member’s injuries or wrongful death in a boating accident, personal injury laws protect you on the water just as they do on land. It’s vital in that case to contact a knowledgeable personal injury attorney right way. We vigorously seek full compensation for your pain and suffering. Our experience with big insurance companies allows us to successfully counter their tactics and win on your behalf.

Because the defendants in boating accident cases are usually large insurance companies and corporations with enormous financial resources, you need an attorney who cannot be intimidated. You need an attorney who will fight aggressively on your behalf. You need an experienced attorney who will not make mistakes in preparing your claim, during negotiations, or in trial that could reduce the amount of compensation you receive. You need Gerald Schwab.
