Kansas City Boat Accident Attorneys

The Legal Support You Need after an Accident

The rules for operating watercraft are different from the rules for driving a car, but the laws of negligence are the same. If a family member was injured or killed in a boating or jet ski accident, Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C. provides the experienced and aggressive representation to fight for full compensation.

We have handled boat and personal watercraft (PWC) accidents on Lake of the Ozarks and Smithville Lake. We can also evaluate injuries that occurred on Longview Lake, Lake Jacomo, Blue Springs Lake, Truman Lake, Table Rock Lake, Pomme de Terre Lake, and other boating hotspots in Missouri or Kansas.

Call us at (816) 484-3776 for a free consultation to explore your potential compensation for a serious personal injury or wrongful death.

Possible Boat Accident Scenarios

Here at Dempsey & Kingsland, we have seen every type of boat accident scenario, including:

  • Powerboat collisions
  • Personal watercraft (“jet ski”) crashes
  • Boats hitting water skiers or swimmers
  • Boaters running into docks, bridges and other fixed structures

We rely on DNR or State Water Patrol accident reports as the basis for our own investigation into boat accidents. Through victim and witness accounts and, if necessary, accident reconstruction experts, we work to identify the liable parties and how they were negligent. Was alcohol involved? Was the operator recklessly close to other crafts? Was the boat traveling at an unsafe speed on a crowded lake? Was the operator old enough to go solo? Did the accident happen at night without running lights?

Maximizing Your Compensation

Boat and PWC crashes often involve drowning deaths, brain injury from near-drowning, or head trauma, spinal injuries, severe burns, broken bones, and other serious or permanent harm. Our Kansas City boat accident attorneys are committed to seeking comprehensive damages for your pain and suffering, future care requirements, and economic losses.

Contact us at (816) 484-3776 if you suspect another party was negligent in your serious boat accident. We offer a free consultation and take no attorney fees unless we obtain compensation.
