Each year thousands of people are injured in boating accidents. Accidents can occur in a variety of situations ranging from ocean-going commercial and cruise line vessels to small pleasure craft on our navigable waterways. When referring to a motor vehicle accident we often refer to the “Rules of the Road” in order to determine what each person’s responsibilities were regarding the safe operation of their vehicle. Similarly, there are rules established by the Coast Guard and various state agencies that outline the rules for safe boating.
What You Need To Know:
Insurance companies’ obligations are to their stockholders and policy holders, not to the people injured by their insured’s negligence. Insurance companies’ desire to maximize their own profits provides them with every motivation to try to deny your claim or pay you the very minimum amount that they can get away with. The insurance companies also have enormous advantages: they have immense wealth, armies of experienced adjusters and lawyers and years of experience reducing and denying claims.
