Boating – Skiing – Water Skiing – Camping

We only represent accident victims – never insurance companies

In Michigan, there is ample opportunity for residents and visitors to enjoy boating and other recreational activities, which can be fun but also dangerous. While it’s not unusual to sustain minor cuts, bruises and muscle sprains in the course of enjoying recreational activities, severe accidents caused by the negligence of those who are responsible for the safe design, development, manufacturing and operation of recreation equipment and facilities are another story. At Baldwin Legal Services PLLC, we represent victims of boating and other recreational injuries, working tirelessly to help our clients obtain fair compensation for their damages.

Negligence in the Recreation Industry

Old or poorly maintained equipment, manufacturing or design flaws on ATVs, golf carts or boats, improper supervision and untrained or under-trained staff are among the causes of serious injury for patrons of theme or amusement parks, ski areas, golf courses, swimming pools, skating rinks and fitness centers.

In this economy, it has been all too easy to delay required maintenance, use inexperienced staff and cut corners in the name of profitability.  However, there is simply no excuse for putting the safety of families at risk.  When negligence has occurred, we pursue all avenues of compensation for you for injuries associated with:

  • Boating accidents
  • Ski lift failures/ski accidents
  • Sports activities
  • Nightclub safety violations
  • Amusement park rides
  • ATV accidents
  • Personal watercraft/jet ski accidents
  • Pool/whirlpool injuries or drowning’s
  • Snowmobile accidents
  • Small airplane accidents
  • Dirt bike and motorcycle accidents
  • Hunting and fishing accidents
  • Rafting accidents

Proven Ability to Earn Positive Results in Complex Accident Cases

The true causes of auto, boating and recreational vehicle accidents are not always readily apparent — and insurance companies are intent on settling potentially large damage claims as quickly and cheaply as possible.  We frequently enlist accident reconstruction experts and other qualified professionals to help us evaluate all angles on your case and uncover evidence critical for pursuing the full, just compensation you deserve.

Do not make the assumption there is no insurance coverage or that your accident is not covered under an existing policy.  A number of policies may be responsible for medical expenses and other losses.  Our recreational accident attorney will explain how many factors are involved in a successful claim and consider related questions:

  • Was the injured person the driver or a passenger?
  • Did the accident or resulting injury result from defective equipment such as a failed helmet, after-market modification, or failed brakes?
  • Did an essential design defect intended to improve aerodynamics of the boat, jet-ski, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or RV cause it to be unstable?
  • Was the negligence of a property owner or a concealed hazard the cause of the crash?
  • Was alcohol a factor in the snowmobile, jet ski, RV or ATV wreck?

Insurance companies may not want to compensate you for your recreational accident, but our experienced litigators are not afraid to fight for your rights. If necessary, we work with our network of experts to support your claim and ensure you receive fair and just compensation.
