Boating & Recreational Accidents

Obtaining Financial Recovery after a Boat Accident or Recreational Accident

Bringing suit for injuries caused by drunk or careless boaters or hunters

When you planned for a beautiful day in the Pennsylvania countryside, you didn't expect your outing to end in tragedy because of the careless or reckless actions of another outdoorsman, hunter, or boater. And yet every year, an afternoon of enjoyment ends in tragedy with serious injuries or wrongful death from a boat accident, jetski accident, waverunner collision, waterskiing incident, ATV accident, snowmobiling accident, or hunting accident.

If you were injured, or a loved was killed, because of the negligence of another person or a company, you may be able to get financial compensation for your injuries or losses. Contact Attorney Joseph Nypaver  to learn about your rights to fair and full compensation. 

Pennsylvania Boat Accidents and Boating While Intoxicated

Wind, waves, and alcohol are a dangerous combination on Glendale Lake or Raystown Lake, with the drunk driver of the boat bearing responsibility for any injuries caused by a boat striking another boat, or colliding with a water skier or jet ski rider. Reckless maneuvering that causes a passenger to fall overboard, or serving alcohol to a boat passenger so that he or she becomes drunk and falls overboard, are examples of negligence for which a boat operator can be held responsible.

There are also occasions when a boat accident is caused by a defective piece of equipment on the boat . For example, a defective engine part may lead to sudden acceleration. In such a case, thorough investigation of the boating or jet ski accident would be most important in proving the case and the injured person would have a claim against the boat manufacturer.

Hunting Accidents

Hunting is very popular in the beautiful Pennsylvania forests.  It can be dangerous endeavor, but smart hunters follow the laws and take proper precautions. Unfortunately, not every hunter in the woods, a state forest or even on private land shows the same common sense. Hunting accidents are not rare, but establishing financial liability can be quite difficult. It requires a lawyer with skill and experience.

ATV / Snowmobile Accidents

Much like boating accidents, snowmobile drivers and ATV operators who are negligent because they've been drinking can find themselves personally liable for injuries they cause to others. If you were injured after being struck by a snowmobile or an ATV driven by a drunk driver, you may have a claim for damages.
