While boating is a fun way to enjoy the Arizona sunshine, it is not without its risks. Based on the 2018 Recreational Boating Statistics from the U.S. Coast Guard, dozens of people suffer boating accident injuries on Arizona’s various bodies of water. When these injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the injured party is eligible to recover compensation.
Zanes Law can help you collect compensation for your boating accident injury no matter how it occurred. First, we will evaluate your injury and identify the responsible party or parties. From our decades of combined experience fighting and winning personal injury cases in Arizona, the most likely responsible parties for a boating injury include:
This party could be the driver of the boat you were occupying or the driver of another boat involved in the accident. Just like driving a motor vehicle on land, operating a boat is a privilege that comes with a long list of responsibilities and regulations. As we investigate your accident, we will look for evidence that the boat driver violated one of these regulations or otherwise behaved negligently.
If the accident resulted from an issue with the boat itself and not driver error, we can hold the manufacturer liable. Under Arizona’s product liability laws, we can go after manufacturers when their products cause injuries even if they were not negligent in developing the product.
Another potentially liable party is the owner of the marina, dock, or boathouse where the accident occurred. For instance, the area may have lacked proper lighting or may have featured unmarked hazards that caused or contributed to the accident.
If a passenger in the boat you were occupying or in another watercraft was behaving in a reckless, careless, or negligent manner, and their actions contributed to your injuries, we will gather evidence against them and hold them accountable.
The above list of potentially liable parties for your boating accident injuries is far from exhaustive. Because every accident is different, we take the time to learn the facts and gather evidence. Once we identify all the responsible parties, we can build a case against them and pursue damages.

Zanes Law will help you recover the full and fair compensation you deserve for your Gilbert, AZ, boating accident injuries. We go after both economic and noneconomic damages. These include:
We will help you get compensated for both your current and your anticipated future medical expenses.
We will make sure you get paid for any income you have had to forfeit while missing work to recover from your injuries.
If your earning capacity has decreased because of your injury, we will help you recover the difference between what you are making now and what you would be earning had you not been injured.
Zanes Law fights aggressively for noneconomic damages, defined as losses that do not involve actual financial depletion. The most common of these include pain and suffering and inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional distress.
In addition, if someone you love died as a result of their boating accident injuries, we can pursue a wrongful death claim. You may be eligible to recover compensation for loss of the deceased’s future earning potential, their medical expenses prior to passing away, and funeral costs.
The Arizona statute of limitations on filing a personal injury claim is typically two years, but it varies based on a number of factors, which is why it is critical to speak with an attorney as soon as possible after your accident. The clock starts running the day you are injured, and if it expires, you can be time-barred from filing a claim, even if you have overwhelming evidence in your favor.
If necessary, Zanes Law can file a quick claim to keep your claim active and keep the statute of limitations from expiring. To learn more, and to schedule a free case evaluation today, call us at (833) 214-0917.
