Boating Accident

Boating is a favourite pastime of many residents of Southwestern Ontario. It can be a safe and fun activity, but all too often a day on the water can turn to tragedy. The operation of any type of watercraft requires the exercise of skill and good judgement. When either of these is absent, an accident is likely to occur. If you or a family member has been injured in a Boating Accident, call the experienced Windsor Ontario Injury Lawyers at Paciocco& Mellow.

Unfortunately, alcohol is a root cause of a Boating Accident. People who would never consider getting behind the wheel of a car after having a few drinks all too often do not feel the same way about operating a boat. Safely operating a boat requires just as much skill and attention, if not more, than operating a car. If you have been injured as the result of a Boating Accident involving a drunk boat operator, you need the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer. If a loved one has died as the result of a Boating Accident, the Wrongful Death Lawyers at Paciocco& Mellow can help you.
Boating is not the only watersport that can result in personal injuries. Many people are injured, or even die, every year as the result of accidents while swimming. Many people believe that swimming in a swimming pool is safer than swimming in the open water of a lake or river. However, proper precautions need to be taken even when swimming in a pool as serious injuries or death can result. The improper installation or use of pool accessories such as diving boards, slides or inflatable pool toys can result in tragedy. Improperly maintained pools also increase the risk of injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident while swimming, call the experienced personal injury lawyers of Paciocco& Mellow at (519)915-SORE(7673) today.

If you have questions about whether you even have a claim, you need to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately. An experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to identify types of liability and potential defendants that you did not even think of. You hire a lawyer because he or she has expertise that you do not have. Our experienced personal injury lawyers will sit down with you and go over all the circumstances surrounding your accident. We can then tell you all of the potential sources of compensation that may be available to you. Sources of compensation do not only include a lawsuit against the person or persons that caused your accident. You may also be able to access private disability insurance or government disability programs such as Canada Pension Plan Disability or the Ontario Disability Support Program. We will leave no stone unturned to ensure that you get all the compensation which you are entitled to following an accident which has resulted in a personal injury.
