WATER ACCIDENTS Representing Clients Throughout Virginia

Water Accident Lawyer in Newport News, VA

Helping Victims Throughout Coastal Virginia

Water activities are an enjoyable pastime for many individuals in and around Newport News, Virginia. Water sports, such as watercraft activities and boating, are popular because they can be both exhilarating and relaxing. When it comes to water activities, the risk of drowning is always present. If you are injured or have lost a loved one because of another person's negligence, you can take legal action to pursue just compensation. With a thorough investigation and evaluation, an experienced Newport News personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you with your case.

Types of Water Accidents

Legal claims involving water accidents are often highly complex and require knowledgeable assistance. Drowning and other accidents can take place when an activity is performed in the water. Some of the types of water accidents that commonly occur include:

  • Watercraft accidents
  • Drug or Alcohol Intoxication
  • Jet Skis
  • Reckless Boating
  • Recreational Negligence
  • Defective Equipment
  • Failure To Supervise
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Water Park Accidents
  • Negligent Lifeguards
  • Boating accidents

If you have lost a loved one to drowning, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death claim. Recreational boat-related crashes result in serious injuries and deaths each year, as reported by the United States Coast Guard. One of the common causes of water accidents is alcohol use by a negligent boat or watercraft operator, which can result in both compensatory and exemplary damages (Virginia Code § 8.01-44.5).

If you have been injured in a water accident, we can help you hold the liable party accountable. In some cases, the at-fault party is another individual in or around the same body of water. In other cases, the liable party is the manufacturer of a defective watercraft. Take action to ensure that your rights are protected as you pursue just compensation from your injury or the loss of a loved one. At Larry King Law, our lawyer has almost 50 years of experience handling personal injury cases of this kind. Contact our firm today to receive legal attention from Larry King Law.
