Our Boating Accident Attorneys Will Prove the At-Fault Party’s Negligence
To recover damages after a boating accident, your personal injury attorney must demonstrate how the other party caused your accident. We may find that one or more of the following factors caused the collision:
- Boating equipment failure
- Drug or alcohol overuse
- Operator distraction
- Operator inattention
- Operator inexperience
- Speeding or recklessness
At Adam Smallow Injury Lawyers, our boating accident attorneys will investigate your Kent County case. Our investigation will get to the bottom of the accident’s cause and document the at-fault party’s financial liability.
Our Boating Accident Attorneys Double as Investigators
The evidence in your case file must prove that because another party acted negligently, you were hurt in a boating accident and have damages. Supporting information that our team can gather includes:
- Dock records
- The accident report/police report
- Accident scene photos
- Accident reconstruction data
- Witness statements
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Written prognosis from your doctor
- Proof of lost income
- First responder reports
- Expert testimonials
We will not tax you or your family with the time-consuming task of collecting and organizing evidence. Instead, we focus on your case so you can focus on healing.

Our Kent County Lawyers Can Recover Your Injury-Related Damages
When two boats collide, their occupants can experience catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord trauma, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones. The costs of treating and recovering from these injuries should be the at-fault party’s responsibility––not yours.
Your boating accident lawyer intends to seek full compensation for your past, present, and future injury-related losses, which may include:
- Medical costs, including anticipated expenses and physical therapy
- Past, present, and future income loss
- Loss of the ability to earn future income
- Property damage expenses
We also demand non-economic damages. These can be difficult to quantify on your own, as they don’t come with receipts, and they’re more subjective. Examples of these losses include pain and suffering, permanent scarring, disability, and emotional trauma.
Our Boating Accident Lawyers Advocate for Wrongful Death Claimants
Boating accidents can have fatal consequences. If you lost a loved one, we’re deeply sorry for your loss. We’re committed to guiding you through this stressful time by offering comprehensive legal help, seeking financial compensation for your loved one’s end-of-life care costs, funeral expenses, and loss of income.
Your Kent County wrongful death lawyer can also pursue the cost of anything you spent out of pocket on travel arrangements and other related expenses.
You Have a Limited Time to File Your Kent County Boating Accident Lawsuit
While our injury lawyers resolve most boating accident cases through insurance claims, we keep litigation an option if the other party refuses to settle. In the event of a personal injury lawsuit, we must file your case within Maryland’s statute of limitations.
The state requires you to file your personal injury lawsuit after a boating accident within three years, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101. Similarly, if a loved one was fatally injured, your family has three years to file, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904.
If your lawsuit is not filed on time, you inadvertently relinquish your right to recover damages through litigation. This could put you in a tough spot if you don’t have other financial recovery options. Our law firm will work hard to meet the filing deadline and avoid the costly consequences of filing your lawsuit too late.
