What Should I Do After a Boating Accident?


  • Seek immediate medical assistance. It is important to determine what injuries you have sustained. Serious injuries can occur internally that you may not be aware of right away.
  • If a second boat or other property is involved, exchange your name and boat number with the other operator or owner (required by law).
  • Promptly report all boating accidents to the county sheriff when there is property damage exceeding $2,000, personal injury or fatalities (required by law).
  • Contact Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben immediately following a boating accident at 1-800-752-4265 to learn your legal rights and receive the just compensation you deserve.
