Boating and water sports are supposed to be fun, leisure-time activities for the family. Unfortunately, many people turn our rivers, lakes, and bays into free-for-all activities that cause accidents and injuries. In many accidents, the operators at fault were unlicensed, underage, or drunk.
San Jose boating accident attorney John J. Garvey, III, has over 40 years of personal injury law experience. Mr. Garvey helps injured boaters, swimmers, water skiers, and owners of boats or other watercraft file claims to receive monetary compensation for the injuries they received in accidents caused by careless boat or watercraft operators.
If you have been injured while boating, canoeing, kayaking, or sailing on the Folsom Dam Reservoir, the American River, or one of the bodies of water that make up the San Jose area (the Delta), contact San Jose boating accident lawyer John J. Garvey, III. Well meet with you wherever is most convenient to discuss your serious injuries and how we can help.
Perhaps you were surfing, wake boarding, scuba diving or engaged in water recreation involving a power boat or a personal watercraft such as a WaveRunner, Jet Ski or SeaDoo — and an unfortunate accident resulted in serious injury. Or perhaps you lost a family member in a fatal accident involving a boat or other watercraft. Perhaps your sailboat was hit by a speedboat, or you were hit by a boat while operating a personal watercraft, kayaking, canoeing or swimming. Was another recreational boater cited for drinking and boating? Did a power boat operator fail to observe waterway speed limits or stay on their side of the waterway? Determining liability is best accomplished as soon after the accident as possible — while evidence and eyewitnesses are still readily available.
