Boating Accidents

Boating and Other Recreational Vehicle Accidents

When you are out on a boat, you rarely think of getting in a boating accident or suffering another injury. But in Kentucky, accidents involving boats and other recreational vehicles are fairly common and could result in serious life-altering injuries or even death. The lawyers at Garmer & Prather are boaters themselves and know the ins and outs of the industry. We litigate all types of serious recreational accidents, including those involving:

  • Sailboats
  • Power boats
  • House boats
  • Jet Skis
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Electrocution
  • Four-wheelers and ATVs

When someone else's reckless behavior or negligence results in a serious injury, you need a law firm with experience. Our attorneys selectively choose cases where we believe we will have the most impact and will dedicate the time and resources necessary to achieve results.

Serious Accidents on Kentucky's Waterways

Kentucky has more miles of running water than any other state in the country other than Alaska and several large man-made lakes as well. Whether you are boating on the Kentucky or Ohio River, canoeing down Elkhorn Creek or boating on Lake Cumberland, Dale Hollow Lake, Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, Cave Run or any of the many other lakes around the state, there is always the chance that you could be seriously injured in an accident.

While boating accidents are a common type of recreational accidents in Kentucky, they are not the only kind. When another person acts negligently or recklessly in their own vehicle, it may result in a serious or even fatal accident. The attorneys at Garmer & Prather have an impressive track record in personal injury cases, including those on our state's waterways.

Skilled Legal Counsel From Avid Boaters

We're more than lawyers. Several of our attorneys enjoy sailboats, power boats and four-wheelers in their downtime as well. We take these accidents seriously, both in and out of the courtroom.

If you have been seriously injured on Kentucky's waterways or in another recreational accident, contact our Lexington office to discuss your case.
