Kansas Boating Laws
It is the responsibility of the boat owner and operator to ensure that the boat is fully equipped and maintained to be safe on water. If this does not occur, drowning and other related accidents can occur. We cannot take back what has already occurred, nor erase the detrimental effects of a serious boat accident, but we can work to recover financial damages. It is our desire to help you undergo the often difficult process moving on with your life after a detrimental accident. For this reason, we want to make this procedure as easy as possible.
We can help release some of your burdens by traveling to your hospital room, hotel, or office to discuss your boating accident. Not only is there no charge for your initial consultation, but you pay nothing for our services unless we win your case. Most accident reports must be filed within 5 days of the accident or within 2 days if a personal injury or wrongful death occurred. We advise you to not hesitate, so contact our firm today!
