Boating Accident: Night Boating

boat accident

Mary and several friends were enjoying a night of boating on Lake Erie when the boat she was a passenger on struck a much larger boat which had no operating lights.

Mary was thrown through the bow sustaining numerous broken bones and other serious injuries.

She was fortunate to survive but faced several surgeries and months of rehabilitation.

Mary and her family turned to McDermott-Hickey for help. We launched a thorough investigation and retained the top maritime accident experts to build Mary’s case.

RESULT: After a long battle in Federal Court the case was resolved for policy limits.
