Somerset, Kentucky, Boating Accident Lawyers

Were You Injured on Lake Cumberland, Laurel Lake or Dale Hollow Lake?

The lakes around Somerset, Kentucky, are popular places for people to spend their time. Many individuals are out on the lakes on boats and personal watercraft (Jet-Skis®). Unfortunately, the density of boats and individuals not paying attention to what they are doing often leads to boating accidents.

If you were injured on one of our area lakes in a boating accident, turn to our personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Richard Hay. From our Somerset office we have handled personal injury cases, including motor vehicle and boating accident cases, since 1981.

Boat Accidents and Injuries

Our boating injury attorneys represent clients who have been injured due to the negligence of a boat operator or the owner of the watercraft. These individuals have a duty to provide their passengers with care, appropriately warn passengers of dangers, and operate the boat properly. They are also obligated to operate the boat in a way that does not cause a danger to other boaters on the water.

We handle cases involving all types of boats, including:

  • Speed boats
  • Fishing boats
  • Sail boats
  • Chartered boats
  • Personal watercraft
  • Other recreational watercraft

Accidents involving these types of boats can cause a range of serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, broken bones, lacerations and abrasions.

Boating Accidents Resulting in Wrongful Death

In some cases, the victim of a boating accident may perish as the result of someone else's negligence. These instances may facilitate a wrongful death lawsuit. We understand the emotional nature of wrongful death boating accident cases and approach them with compassion and sensitivity. These claims are particularly sensitive, and we represent clients compassionately and effectively.
