Many people enjoy spending time on local lakes, waterways and at marinas. Unfortunately, things can and do go wrong, in the marina, on the dock or on the water. Like any other accident, a snowmobile, ATV or boating accident can have a devastating impact upon the accident victim and their family.
Recreational accidents are motor vehicle accidents involving a boat, ATV or snowmobile. These accidents are classified as Motor Vehicle Accidents and are treated the same as a motor vehicle accident involving a car, van, truck, eBike or motorcycle.
Following a recreational accident, you may be entitled to make a claim for damages. Depending on where the accident occurred and where the involved vehicles are registered, there may be jurisdictional issues, which may require you to bring your claim in Federal Court or even in the United States of America. There are different time restrictions and deadlines to make a claim and so it is important that you speak with a lawyer with knowledge in these areas.
