At Levinson Axelrod, P.A., we help injury victims file suit against negligent parties to obtain the justice and compensation they deserve. When you come to our New Jersey boating accident attorneys, we will get to work right away on investigating your case — no matter how complex it may seem.
We can help you identify whether the boating accident in which you were injured was caused by:
- Another boater’s intoxication or impairment
- An unseaworthy boat/vessel on the water
- A manufacturing defect or error
- Underage boat operation/lack of supervision
- Another’s aggressive or reckless boating
- Any other type of negligent boating
From there, our legal team will determine if there will be any challenges with the other party’s liability insurance coverage, such as insufficient policy limits to cover the extent of your damages. If this is the case, we may help you file suit to hold additional parties accountable and ensure that you receive your full financial recovery.

Pursuing Compensation After a Boating Accident
New Jersey law allows individuals injured in a range of watercraft accidents to recover compensation from the at-fault party. This may include accidents involving fishing boats, kayaks, canoes, wakeboarding boats, and speed boats, among other types of watercraft.
To win your case, you will need to effectively establish that negligence was committed. What’s more, you will need to show that your injuries were sustained as a direct result of this negligence. It is unfortunately expected that the negligent party will deny their role in causing your injury. Often, they will claim liability is shared or that your injury is not rooted in the accident — in many cases, they will assert both of these false claims. Our attorneys will do everything within our power to protect you and your rights.
At Levinson Axelrod, P.A., we represent boating accident victims who have sustained severe injuries, such as:
- Partial or complete amputation
- Serious burns
- Broken/fractured bones
- Brain and head injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spine injuries
- Wrongful death
