Boating Accidents


 Have you been hurt while out boating or Jet Skiing in California? If so, it is important to consult with a San Diego boating accident lawyer to learn about your rights to financial recovery. At The Law Offices of Olins & Zucconi, we have been representing personal injury victims since 1978, and we can help you obtain the maximum financial compensation from those responsible for your harm.

Throughout Southern California, the San Diego harbor, Oceanside harbor, Mission Bay, the Colorado River and on the Pacific Ocean, boating accidents frequently occur.

If you have been hurt on the water, whether the bay, ocean, river or lake, or lost a loved one due to a boating, Jet Ski or watercraft accident, it is important to have a compassionate attorney in your corner who will listen to your concerns and fight to protect your interests. Contact our office by email to speak with a San Diego boating accident lawyer. We may work on a contingency fee basis. This means that our fee for attorney services will be a percentage of the gross recovery. If there is no recovery, no fee for attorney services will be charged.

Knowledgeable and Compassionate California Boating and Jet Ski Injury Lawyers

At The Law Offices of Olins & Zucconi, we understand that most boating accidents are preventable, and usually are caused by the negligence of another individual. Some of the main sources of boating injuries include:

  • Operator inexperience

  • Driver's lack of attention

  • Capsizing

  • Collisions with other boats

  • Falling overboard

  • Alcohol consumption

Many people underestimate the dangers associated with boating activities, such as tubing, skiing and wakeboarding. If you have suffered a personal injury because of any of these events, our competent California attorneys can help.

Federal and State Boating Regulations

Boaters are required to follow both federal and California state laws while operating and maintaining their speedboats, pontoons or other watercrafts. It is illegal to drive a boat in a reckless manner, in swimming areas or at unsafe speeds. Boat owners are also required to have a certain number of life jackets on board in order to prevent possible injuries from occurring. Our California Jet Ski injury attorneys have an extensive understanding of these boating regulations and will take the time to explain them to you.
