What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Boat Mechanical Defect Lawyer

As consumers, we all place trust in corporations to produce functional and reasonably safe products for us to use. This is rarely truer than when we are enjoying an afternoon on a beach or riverside. A small defect or design flaw in watercraft or related safety equipment can have serious consequences for everyone involved.

Most of the time, our trust is not misplaced. Mechanical defects are a primary cause of less than 5% of boating accidents across the country. However, this is cold comfort to people who have been seriously injured or lost loved ones because of poorly designed or built boating equipment.

If you have been hurt by a piece of malfunctioning or faulty equipment while on a boat, call Jacksonville boat accident lawyer Don Guthrie today at 904-296-1088.
