In Ontario, victims of boating accidents and their family members can recover compensation for their losses from the responsible boat operator and the boat owner. Boating laws and regulations are complicated and can restrict recovery for the boating accident victims. Determining fault for the boating accident and assessing the damages you can recover requires expert legal analysis.
You may be entitled to claim compensation from the person responsible for the boating accident. This compensation is normally paid by the responsible boat operator and owner’s insurer. In Ontario, injury victims who suffer serious and permanent injuries can recover damages compensating them for all of their losses, including their pain and suffering, their past and future lost income, their extraordinary future health care and home maintenance costs, and their out of pocket expenses.
Time limits govern when you must notify the responsible parties that you intend to bring a claim and they govern when you must start your claim for compensation. These time limits can restrict your rights to recover your losses. Not everyone is entitled to claim compensation from the person who caused the boating accident. Each claim is different. Assessing the value of your claim and determining responsibility requires analysis by an experienced boating accident lawyer.
