Boating Under the Influence

Working for Boating Accident Victims in Louisiana

Operating a boat while intoxicated is, in most respects, the same as driving a car while under the influence. When people consume drugs or too much alcohol and operated boats or cars, they negligently put everyone else in the vicinity danger. The law places drunk driving and drunk boating operation in the same category, as well, treating the two in the same statute, with the same blood-alcohol limitations and penalties.

If you’ve been seriously hurt or lost someone you love as a result of a boating accident in which the other boater was under the influence, you deserve to be compensated. However, the main goal of the insurance company will be to keep from paying you the full amount that your case is worth. Don’t be a victim twice. Hire a team of aggressive, experienced lawyers to fight for your right to full and fair compensation.

The attorneys of Murphy Law Firm, LLC share a deep commitment to helping injured boating accident victims and the families of those who have died in boating accidents caused by boating under the influence. We will fight for the compensation you deserve.

“There are two essential aspects to drunk boating accident cases. First, there is an element of justice. If someone’s negligent choice to drive a boat under the influence caused you serious personal injuries, justice demands that the responsible party pay the costs. Second, there is a practical element. Most people cannot shoulder the burden of the medical bills and lost wages that result from personal injuries. As a family man myself, I know how important it is to help my clients obtain the compensation they need to continue supporting their families after suffering serious injuries. Let me help you. Call me.” ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy ∙ Contact Murphy Law Firm, LLC.

Compensation for the Full Extent of Your Injuries

We have a wealth of experience defending our clients against the tactics of insurance companies. When the insurance company agent contacts you, do not say anything. Don’t give a statement, don’t characterize or describe your injuries, and don’t accept any offer that the insurance agent gives you.

We have seen many injured boating accident victims accept an early offer from insurance companies. These are generally one-time offers that require the victim to sign away all rights to future lawsuits. The problem is that the settlement offers rarely cover the full extent of victims’ injuries. Further, if the other boater is convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) in the criminal courts, you could be entitled to punitive damages as well as compensatory damages, which could increase your total financial award considerably.

We have experience working with life-care and other medical experts to get a complete and accurate estimate of what our clients’ injuries will cost in the long term. Often injuries linger on for years and become extremely expensive in the long run. Let us help you make sure you are fully and fairly compensated for the long-term costs of injuries or the wrongful death of a family member.
