Louisiana Boating Injury Attorneys
In places like Louisiana, many people love to escape to the waters and enjoy boating, wake boarding, and other activities. Unfortunately, the large number of watercrafts increases the number of boating accidents that occur in Louisiana on an annual basis. In addition, commercial boating accidents pose dangerous risks to seamen on barges and other large ships. When boating accidents occur, it is important for victims to have an advocate on their side.

Like car and other types of accidents, there are a variety of causes for boating accidents in Louisiana. At Galloway Jefcoat, LLP, we handle recreational boating claims involving:
- Personal watercraft accidents
- Propeller injuries
- Speed boat and wake board accidents
- Marina accidents
We also represent the victims of commercial boating accidents. Many seamen who are injured in commercial boating accidents are covered under the Longshore Act, which provides benefits for medical expenses and lost wages.
Commercial boating accidents may involve swing line and crane accidents, lighting and mooring accidents, and accidents that occur in "no wake zones." In some commercial boating accidents, multiple parties may be liable and our firm will not hesitate to hold every party that is responsible for an accident accountable.
