Minnesota Boating Accident Attorneys & Lawyers
Minnesota has over 9,000 miles of shoreline and nearly one million registered boats (the largest per capita ownership in the United States). Hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans don't know life without one. Many own two or three, including speed boats, ski boats, jet skis and other personal watercraft. Sadly, this enjoyable local pastime sometimes turns for the worst and boat operators or passengers are killed or injured in an accident on the water.
Causes of Boat Accidents in Minnesota
With recreational boating accidents, rules concerning motor vehicles typically apply. The operator and owner of a boat owes a duty to exercise reasonable care to all passengers and other boaters. Common causes of boating accidents include:
Use of Alcohol During Operation of a Boat;
Failure to Yield; and
Failure to Monitor Water Depth.

Compensation in Boat Accident Cases
Having suffered losses through a boating accident (either because of the negligence of someone else while you were boating or because of a design defect in your boat) your life now has been changed completely. You are entitled to full compensation for your losses. The types of compensation to which you are entitled include:
Past and Future Wage Loss;
Past and Future Medical Expenses;

Client Testimonial: "The legal process can be extremely complicated, confusing and intimidating for the average person. Working together with Brown Law Offices, P.A. brought the whole process into perspective in an uncomplicated, easy to understand way. Cynthia and Jason always kept me immediately informed and, through their guidance, made me feel that this was 'my' case and that I wasn't just along for the ride, which was important to me. Their thorough understanding of the law provided me with choices that I don't feel I would have had using another law firm. I would highly recommend their services for those seeking legal counsel." -Richard J., Stillwater, Minnesota
