Recreational Equipment and Vehicle Accidents
Boating – Skiing – Water Skiing – Camping
People boating on lakes of New Jersey including Lake Hopatcong or venturing onto the ski slopes of Mountain Creek do not expect accidents – they expect to have fun. When not hard at work in behalf of the firm’s clients, many of our partners, including Gary Salomon and Sam Davis, enjoy boating and skiing activities. Often, it is the personal experience of attorneys that helps them understand the unique nature of recreational activities. Sadly, accidents occur all too often, with serious injuries or fatalities the frequent result. At the Teaneck, New Jersey, law firm of Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., our attorneys help people who have been injured or whose loved ones have been killed in recreational accidents. We develop strong cases for compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering for people injured by negligent behavior. Call today for a free initial consultation.
Through the years, by reason of better equipment, and by reason of certain lawsuits against resort owners resulting in safer operations, skiing has become a much safer sport.
We only represent accident victims – never insurance companies
Negligent behavior can mean drunken operation of a boat or personal watercraft. It can mean failure to follow the maintenance schedule for a ski resort lift. It can mean poor design of an ATV braking system. It could mean skiing at a reckless or unsafe speed, or being intoxicated while skiing. It can mean faulty connectors on a camping stove propane bottle. Whatever the cause of the negligence, when it results in serious injuries, injured people have a right to seek money damages or other compensation. If you have been injured in a skiing or boating accident or other incident involving recreational vehicles and equipment, contact our New Jersey or New York offices to speak with an attorney with the knowledge and experience to advise you about your options and your rights.
Using experts and specialists to build a strong case for compensation after a boating accident
Our lawyers have been helping people injured in all types of accidents since 1981. We have the experience and resources needed to build a strong case. We consult with product engineers, safety experts, and medical specialists to learn the facts of the accident and your medical prognosis. We prepare our trial presentations in our state-of-the-art courtroom.
We have handled cases involving:
- Power boats and marina accidents
- Water skiing gear
- JetSkis, Wave Runners, and other personal watercraft
- Ski lifts and ski run maintenance
- Snowmobiles and SkiDoos, reckless skiers, intoxicated skiers
- ATVs and other four-wheelers
If a tragic skiing accident occurs by reason of a skier’s carelessness and it was not the result of any negligence on the part of the resort, often the negligence and carelessness of a skier will be covered by their own, or their parent’s homeowner’s insurance policy. In all of these cases, we determined that negligent behavior in the operation, design, or manufacture of the recreational equipment was the root cause of the accident. Although we have not always convinced courts or insurance adjusters to agree with us, we have an enviable record of success in such matters.
If you have been injured in a boating accident or incident involving other leisure-time activities or equipment, contact our law firm, Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. We serve cities such as Newark, Elizabeth, Paterson, and Trenton from our Teaneck and New York offices.
