Boat & Watercraft Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Arkansas provides ample opportunity to enjoy waterways, boating and water crafting. With this opportunity, however, not everyone takes their responsibility seriously. 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 in a boating accident, we are here to help.

Mistakes On The Water Are Just As Serious

Our attorneys at the law firm of Dodds, Kidd, Ryan & Rowan are ready to bring 90 years of combined 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 make them an issue when we build 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.
