Experienced Watercraft Injury Attorneys
Keeping the Waterways of Upstate New York Safe
Personal watercraft make up a small percentage of the vessels in Upstate New York, but they are involved in a significant number of boating accidents. People on Jet Skis are also more likely to be injured in collisions with boats, land, debris or buoys, than passengers on larger vessels.
At the Albany, NY-based personal injury law firm of E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, our lawyers help those who have been injured or have suffered the loss of a family member obtain the compensation they deserve. We represent Jet Ski accident victims on Oneida Lake, Finger Lakes, Otsego Lake, Schroon Lake, Lake George, Great Sacandaga Lake, Saratoga Lake, Lake Placid, Lake Champlain, Saratoga Lake, the Hudson River, the Mohawk River and other navigable waterways throughout Upstate New York.
Who Is Responsible for Accidents Involving Jet Skis?
Jet Ski accidents can involve complex liability and contested liability. For this reason, you should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to collect and preserve evidence of liability. Statements from witnesses and damage from the vessels are essential in determining what happened, as there will not be skid marks or other physical evidence on the scene.
Our lawyers understand liability issues involving vessels on navigable waters. Partners E. Stewart Jones and James Hacker, both served as lead counsel representing the victims of the Ethan Allen tour boat capsizing on Lake George, in which 20 passengers drowned.
