Springfield Boating Accidents
We Have over 235 years of Collective Experience
Boating accidents are not particularly common, but they can be devastating to the families affected. These accidents are most prevalent in the summer months, when families and individuals in Missouri are likely to beat the heat by getting on the water.
When boat accidents happen, one or more operators may have been at fault. Gathering the facts is a key aspect of ensuring proper compensation for the injuries your family has suffered, and it’s always our priority as boating accident attorneys in Springfield
What Causes Boating Accidents?
Some of the most common factors causing or contributing to boating accidents include:
- Operators who lack experience
