Boat & Watercraft Accidents

As a luxury, Little Rock provides ample opportunity to enjoy waterways, boating and watercrafting. With this opportunity, however, also comes responsibility that all too many people do not take seriously enough. When boats and other watercraft are used recklessly, tragedy may be just around the corner.

These types of accidents are rarely like a car accident or other motor vehicle accident — despite moving at high speeds, boats are not constructed to handle crashes, so injuries tend to be much more severe. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of someone's negligence, we are here to help.

Boat Injury Lawyers Serving Central Arkansas

Our attorneys at the law firm of Dodds, Kidd, Ryan & Rowan are ready to bring 60 years of litigation experience to help you and your loved ones recover adequate compensation if your injury involves:

  • Boat accidents and personal watercraft liability — We can work on cases involving injuries due to powerboat, sailboat, fishing boat and personal watercraft collisions. We can determine negligence, disregard for safety regulations or issues of drunk boating (BWI) and take them to work in building a case. If there are boat defects, we can also work on product liability cases.
  • Swimmers and divers — If you or a loved one was struck by a boat or watercraft while swimming, the boater is liable for negligence. This is particularly true if this occurred in or near any area that was designated for swimmers.

In our decades of practice, we have helped clients obtain millions of dollars in compensation and we are committed to helping you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.

We offer representation in Little Rock and Conway and throughout Arkansas.
