Brooklyn NY Boat / Ferry Accident Lawyer

Boat, Ferry, Water Taxi, and Watercraft Accident Lawyers in New York City

Boating accidents in New York City involve ferries, water taxies, cruises, boat tours, jet skiing and other recreational water activities in and around the New York waterways, including The Long Island Sound, New York Harbor, the East River, and Long Islands East End, and out into coastal Atlantic Ocean waters. The results of these watercraft accidents are often catastrophic, leading to bone fractures, severe lacerations, hypothermia, paraplegia, brain injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, and even death, often due to drowning. Many boat crashes are caused by events beyond our control, such as inclement weather, congested waters and otherwise hazardous waterways. However, in spite of these navigation and weather challenges, a responsible and properly trained boat captain or other boat operator and crew will ensure his or her vessel is properly equipped and in good working condition and will be educated and sober enough to know how to respond in the event of the unexpected. When that doesn’t happen, it can be grounds for a negligence action.

    At Bisogno & Meyerson, Attorneys for the Injured, our Brooklyn boating accident attorneys have decades of experience handling serious personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits resulting from waterway collisions. Ferry terminal accidents — such as slip and falls, traffic accidents or negligent security matters — may seem more straightforward. However, since many ferry terminals are run by a government agency or entity, for example, the Port Authority of NY & NJ (PANYNJ) is responsible for certain ports, including the Port of NY and the Port of NJ seaport facilities, which means that special litigation requirements may apply. If you have been injured on port authority property, whether as a passenger on a ferry, cruise ship, water taxi, or a pedestrian walking in a ferry terminal, it is important that you seek legal counsel right away, as filing deadlines in which to commence a legal action, by filing a Notice of Claim (NOC) for your injuries, may be limited to ninety (90) days, with the very rear exception of catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. The devastating effects of boat accidents can be lifelong or unfortunately life ending. Our experienced New York city boating accident lawyers utilized our vast boating expertise and resources while taking seriously every case we take. We work closely with top rated accident investigators and other experts to build a strong case and get you the compensation to which you and your loved ones are rightfully entitled to your serious personal injury or wrongful death case.
