What Should I Do Immediately After A Boat Crash?
We understand that the aftermath of a boat collision or other form of accident can feel overwhelming. If you can, try to follow these steps to make your claim stronger:
- Seek medical attention immediately.
- Call 911 to have them write an accident report.
- Get the name and insurance information of the other boat driver and any witnesses, including any other people on the boat.
- Take photos of the damage to your boat and the other boat.
- Take photos of your injuries.
- Do not speak with any insurance representatives unless you have an attorney.
A lawyer can provide additional advice specific to your situation. If you complete the aforementioned steps, you can give yourself a much better chance of recovering compensation.
How Long Does It Take To Receive A Boating Accident Settlement?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Some settlements take place within months. Others can take a year or more. If the insurance company does not make a fair offer, negotiating a better settlement takes extensive time. A trial can take even longer.
