Boating Injury Lawsuits in Minnesota

Minnesota has numerous laws and regulations governing water safety and watercraft within the state. Violations may lead to liability. If another party’s negligence led to your boating accident injury, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. 

In Minnesota, boating accident claims are also subject to the state’s comparative fault laws. Under this system, your compensation will be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault for the accident. However, you may still recover damages as long as your percentage of fault is less than the defendant’s.

Acting quickly is crucial. Minnesota’s personal injury statute of limitations sets a strict deadline for filing a claim. In most cases, you have six years from the date of the accident to take legal action. However, if the accident resulted in fatal injuries, the wrongful death statute of limitations gives three years to file a claim. 

While several years may seem like a long time, you should not wait to take legal action. In part, this is because gathering evidence becomes more difficult the longer you wait. Our knowledgeable boat accident lawyers can gather all available evidence to build a strong case on your behalf and ensure that it is filed on time to protect your right to compensation.

Compensation Options for Boating Injury Victims

Negotiating with insurance companies and litigating in court can be overwhelming, especially when you’re trying to recover from your injuries as insurance companies are not always on your side. Our compassionate boating accident lawyers have the experience and resources to handle every aspect of your claim, allowing you to focus on healing and moving forward with your life.

Boat accident victims in Minnesota may be entitled to a wide variety of compensation for their injuries and losses. The types of damages available in these claims include economic, non-economic, and, in rarer cases, punitive damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are designed to compensate injury victims for quantifiable financial losses stemming from an accident. These may include:

Non-economic Damages

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensate victims for the intangible impact an accident has on their lives, including:

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are monetary awards granted in a legal case to punish the defendant for egregious conduct and deter similar behavior in the future. Unlike the compensatory damages discussed above, which aim to compensate plaintiffs for their losses, punitive damages go beyond compensation and serve as a form of punishment. They are typically awarded in cases where the defendant’s actions are deemed particularly malicious, reckless, or intentionally harmful.
