Hamilton’s boat accident lawyers 

Boating is a popular pastime for residents throughout Ontario.  The Hamilton area’s many lakes, rivers and ponds offer excellent opportunities to go fishing, waterskiing, or simply relaxing on the water.  Many commuters and travelers also rely on boats to get to work or for sightseeing in the city.  Unfortunately, these activities can come with a certain level of risk. 

I met with Mr Stayshyn after an accident for an initial consult. He was extremely helpful in letting me know my rights and steps going forward if necessary. I highly recommend Stayshyn Law offices to anyone who requires advice after an accident.

Operating a boat on any of Hamilton’s waters comes with an obligation under the law to obey applicable water safety regulations and to operate the vessel with caution and consideration for others.  These Ontario boat accidents often occur because people underestimate the dangers of a watercraft or simply do not understand or appropriately follow boating rules and safety laws.  Whether someone breaches this duty by not having proper safety equipment, not following the rules of the water, or through simple inattentiveness, our team of experienced trial lawyers can help hold them accountable for the subsequent losses.   

If you were injured due to a boating collision, Stayshyn Law Offices could help you pursue a claim to cover any losses you have suffered due to another’s negligence.  This can include medical care, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  There are strict limitation periods that apply after an accident, limiting one’s ability to make a claim.  It is important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after a boating accident to discuss your legal rights and options. 

If you have suffered an injury because of a boater’s negligence, you may be able to seek compensation for the costs of medical care, lost quality of life, and lost wages from missing work.  Let Stayshyn Law Offices help you recover your damages from a negligent boat owner and/or operator.
