Injured in a Riverboat Accident?

Have you been injured on a riverboat? A riverboat accident lawyer at Brais Law is available to provide you with a risk-free, cost-free review of your case to determine how we can help. If you have experienced an injury while on a riverboat, it is important to reach out to a riverboat accident attorney as soon as possible to get started on building the best possible case. Riverboats are increasingly common in the United States. They include gambling boats, in addition to a variety of different tourist cruises. Some riverboats are available for a quick tour on the water, while others are for hire for longer expeditions. Riverboats are especially common in the following cities:

  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • Lake Charles, Louisiana 
  • New Orleans, Louisiana 
  • Memphis, Tennessee 
  • St. Paul, Minnesota 
  • Clarkston, Washington
  • Portland, Oregon 
  • Astoria, Oregon

While riverboats might provide a fun excursion for the majority of passengers, injuries do occur on them. Whether you were on a riverboat as a passenger, a crew member, or on your own vessel that was in an accident with a riverboat, you could be entitled to compensation. The maritime injury lawyers at Brais Law have recovered over $60 million on behalf of our injured clients since 2012 alone, and we are standing by to help you make the most of your claim or case. 

A Riverboat Accident Lawyer Assembles Your Claim and Negotiates on Your Behalf

While it would be ideal if you received the full compensation you deserve immediately after an injury, that is not how it works.

To collect for the costs and damages linked to your injuries, you’ll need to gather evidence to prove your damages both now and in the future, then file an insurance claim or lawsuit to make the liable party pay.

Providing proof of your damages requires evidence from medical and occupational experts. These experts review the accident and your injury to measure the present and future medical costs, lost wages, and lost earnings potential at work. When you have a riverboat accident attorney on the case, we’ll help you schedule appointments with local experts to provide the evidence we need to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
