Need an Experienced Chicago Boat Accident Accident Attorney?

Unfortunately, with the number of boats and other watercraft, there are going to be irresponsible boaters. Accidents are bound to occur.

Each summer, thousands leave their Chicago homes for a day out on Lake Michigan or one of Illinois’ other bodies of water. Whether you are taking a pleasure cruise, fishing or wakeboarding, the blue waters offer an escape from the mundane activities of daily life. Unfortunately, with the number of boats and other watercraft, there are going to be irresponsible boaters. Accidents are bound to occur. Alcohol, mechanical problems, inexperienced drivers, or failure to use life jackets can all contribute to the severity of an accident.

In 2017 alone, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (DNR) handled 80 boat accidents. This was the highest number of watercraft accidents in the state in five years. 48 people were injured in these boat crashes and 12 died.

The DNR report also revealed that 145 people were arrested that year for operating a boat while impaired. The agency further notes that most of the accidents involved operators who had “little or no classroom boating safety instruction” or was “cruising in a reckless manner”.

These numbers give us a snapshot of the dangerous boaters we may encounter on our waterways. If you or someone in your family has been seriously hurt by one of these boaters, call us at Willens Injury Law Offices to talk with an experienced Chicago boating accident attorney who can help you understand your legal options to get compensated.

Boat Accidents are Different

Unlike cars, boats and personal watercraft do not come equipped with airbags or seatbelts. When another watercraft hits you, occupants of a boat may be thrown into the water. Drowning is a real concern. There might be severe injuries or even death.

Some common injuries from watercraft accidents include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spine injuries, hypothermia, and fractures. There is also the real danger of carbon monoxide poisoning from the boat’s engine or generator. In many cases, these watercraft injuries have proven fatal.

Another unique aspect in a boat accident is the tricky insurance coverage. Though water vessels have to be registered, the State of Illinois does not require boat owners to have watercraft insurance. Further, water vessel insurance policies typically cover only motorized vessels, not paddleboats, kayaks, or canoes.

A boating accident lawyer in Chicago will tell you it’s possible that in a water crash, the boater’s home insurance policy would cover the injuries. Not all homeowner’s insurance includes this coverage, however, and not all boat operators have homeowner’s insurance.

As a result, victims in a boating accident often find it difficult to get reimbursed for their injuries. To be fully compensated, they need the legal know-how and experience of a Chicago boating accident lawyer.

If you or a loved one has been in a boating accident, then please call Willens Injury Law Offices at (312) 957-4166 and talk to the firm’s founder, Matthew Willens, a boater himself, or one of our other Chicago boating accident attorneys.

What Kind Of Watercraft Were You In?

Injurious accidents involving a watercraft may be compensable, regardless of the type or size of the water vessel. We’ve encountered legitimate cases involving these marine vessels and more:

  • Personal watercrafts (Jet Skis, Wave Runners, and the like)
  • Sailboats
  • Yachts
  • Kayaks and canoes
  • Paddleboards
  • Motorboats
  • Pontoons
  • Fishing boats
  • Airboats
  • Sightseeing cruise vessels

How Did Your Illinois Boating Accident Happen?

In many years of practice, our Chicago boating accident lawyers have investigated various critical events in the water that result in serious injuries. Your boating accident was likely one of the following, or something similar:

  • Collision with another watercraft
  • Collision with a fixed object (like a rock, a pier, or land)
  • Hitting a wave
  • Hitting another vessel’s wake
  • Catching fire
  • Mechanical failure or breaking down
  • Water leaking in

Accidents like these can often be traced back to someone’s negligence. These are some of the most common causes of negligent boating crashes and injuries:


    • Unqualified or inexperienced operator. In Illinois, minors age 12 and above may operate a motorboat only if they have a Boating Education Certificate or if they are directly supervised by an adult.

    • Inattentive operator. The boat operator or lookout must constantly monitor the boat and the surrounding environment for any signs of hazards.

    • Intoxicated operator. Illinois law prohibits operating under the influence (OUI) of alcohol or drugs. A blood alcohol content of 0.08 or more can lead to a criminal conviction for a boat operator.

    • When a boat runs at high speed, the operator has too little time to properly react to a hazard. The US Coast Guard urges boaters to match their speeds with the surrounding conditions. They particularly warn against excessive boating speeds at night.

    • It is illegal in Illinois and in other states to load a water vessel beyond its recommended capacity. Unfortunately, overloading is still a factor in fatal boating accidents, according to a 2017 Coast Guard report.

    • Poor vessel maintenance. It is crucial to ensure that a vessel is water-worthy before it is taken out into a lake, river, or sea. Some of the most devastating boat accidents involve malfunctioning engines, pumps, and safety equipment (navigation lights, fire extinguishers, and so on.).

    • Violation of navigation rules. Just like there are rules of the road, there are procedures on how watercrafts should cross, give way, and overtake. Authorities also demarcate certain waters where recreational boating is restricted, largely due to dangerous waters.

    • The recklessness of anyone aboard. There have been many incidents where passengers themselves have acted recklessly on personal watercrafts and yachts, such as by ignoring safety instructions or hindering operators.

    • Lack of safety gear. Illinois watercraft are required to have one personal flotation device (life jacket) for each person aboard, plus one throwable flotation device. Sadly, many people have died in water accidents because they had no life vests on.

If you suspect that something like these caused your boating injury, talk to us at Willens Injury Law Offices right away. We are experienced in establishing the negligent causes of boating accidents. Let us help you make sense of your watercraft injury and understand your best legal options.

What To Do After A Watercraft Accident in Illinois?

It can be tough to think of what to do after a disaster in the water. Remember these steps that may save you and your loved ones from more severe injury, and which may help you claim compensation later on.

  1. Ensure that everyone is safe. Immediately check if you or anyone else needs medical attention. If you are hurt, call for professional help instead of dismissing your injury. Many injuries seem minor at first and only manifest more serious symptoms later.
  2. Document the scene. If you can, take photographs of the crash site and of your injuries. Collect the names, contact details, vessel identification, and insurance information of all boat operators involved. Vessel operators are required by law to give this information to those who are injured in the crash.
  3. Report the accident. If you were operating your vessel when the accident occurred, take note of the reporting requirement. Operators are mandated to report a boating accident if it resulted in a fatality, a missing person, an injured person, or property damage worth $2,000 or more. In Illinois, the written report must be filed with the DNR using this form.
    Your boating accident report may be a valuable piece of evidence in your compensation claim. Keep your report factually accurate, avoiding opinions or apologies.
  4. Call a lawyer. You’ll want to safeguard your rights as soon as possible. Even if you are not considering legal action at this point, a boating accident lawyer in Chicago can help you investigate your accident, determine liability, and identify all legal avenues for you to get compensated.

What Compensation Can You Claim In A Boat Crash in Chicago?

An accident injury impacts not just your physical wellbeing but also your financial situation, your emotional wellness, and your immediate future. The law recognizes this, that’s why you may be compensated for various types of losses.

There are two types of compensation (legally called “damages”) in a personal injury or wrongful death case. Economic damages refer to losses that have a quantifiable dollar amount, while non-economic damages are less tangible but still compensable under the law.

Economic damages may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Therapy or rehabilitation costs
  • Long-term costs
  • Lost earnings
  • Lost capacity to earn

Examples of non-economic damages are:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional distress.

If you have lost a loved one in a boating tragedy, there are some unique damages that you may claim as a close family member. Though these monetary payments cannot replace the life lost, they can help you get back on track after the accident. Wrongful death damages may include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost consortium (marital companionship)
  • Lost guidance and care
  • Lost benefits.

To determine the maximum amount of damages you can claim, consult with a boating accident attorney in Chicago. Your lawyer should be experienced in the various rights and claims of boating accident victims, leaving no stone unturned in determining the full compensation you are entitled to.

It's been over a year since I was involved in my car accident - everyone knows that is a very stressful time for the injured party. I considered going through the whole process on my own but I quickly realized the insurance company was NOT my friend. I reached out to Willens Law Offices, met Matt and the attorney that would be handling my claim, David Baez. David was excellent, I'm big on communication and anytime I texted David; sometimes ad nauseam, he would always respond quickly and professionally. I had a ton of questions, and David answered everyone of them to my satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better attorney to fight for me, I have extremely high expectations and they were exceeded consistently.

I had an accident injuries and based on google reviews I reached out to Willens Law Offices in Chicago. David Baez helped me with my case. He came to meet us and understood our case in detail and he guided me all the steps of the process. I had advices from friends that you are unnecessarily going after the process and nothing will happen. David made everything worthwhile and he gave right advice always which was right for my health and right for the case. He worked very hard on my case for 2 years collecting all the paperwork, talking to physicians and taking care of my case and making it in my favor. I was truly blessed by having David Baez handling my case who was extremely professional, great ethics and felt as my family with him. After the injuries and pain I was afraid to select one but my God made me select the right one. If anyone feel they need accident injuries lawyer then I will only recommend David Baez. Nobody will beat his hard work, professionalisms, ethics and perseverance and yet down to earth and honest. Thank you for everything you have done for me and blessings from my heart for his success.

I was involved in an accident back in last year and was searching for an attorney who looked like I can trust. I found Matt Willens and I am thankful. I called him up just to get a feel for him as a person and I could tell right away that he truly cared, not only about me but my family too. To say that he fought for us would be an understatement. He was ready to go to trial! Luckily we settled and it was for more money than I imagined, especially after my initial talk with the insurance company. Thanks Matt!

I’m rarely compelled to leave a review for anyone but I felt I needed to show my gratitude.From the first time I spoke with Matt Willens on the phone I actually felt like he was there for me, looking after my best interests and not his own. That’s rare in my experience.Matt is an absolute pro and I wouldn’t think to call or recommend anyone else if I or a loved one were injured in the future. Thanks Matt!

When I first contacted Willens law office, I just wanted to make sure everyone was paid after I was rear ended and I wasn’t the one doing it. My correspondence was primarily with David, he was always patient when I was slow to get him information and ended up calling me with great news after almost a year of back and forth with the at-fault insurance company.I can’t thank David and the Willens law office enough.

Willens Law came highly recommended after I was badly injured when hit by an out of control car. I in turn most highly recommend Willens Law based on my great experience over the past year and a half.I am very pleased with both the outcome of my case as well as the experience working with Matt Willens and David Baez throughout the process.I had no specific expectation regarding a case outcome, seeking only ‘the best outcome possible.’ I certainly believe my case outcome was a great outcome. And I strongly believe that outcome was a direct result of fantastic work done by Matt and David.From beginning to end Matt and David were great to work with. They did a great job setting expectations; explaining what was to happen, including the why and the how; guiding me through the steps I needed to take; and answering both my “need to know” and “just curious” questions. They were always extremely prompt and clear in their guidance and responses to me.A silver lining in a tough situation was working with Matt and David, both of whom I came to respect professionally and like personally. I do most highly recommend Willens Law to others who may need such services.

After being in an Uber accident about a year ago, I reached out to Willens Law to assist me through the settlement process. I had the pleasure of working with David Baez. From the start he was very personable and professional. He was always willing to educate me on the process and made sure I understood each step before going forward. Even after receiving my settlement, David has been willing to assist with any questions related to my case. I would highly recommend Willens Law.

I reached out to Willens Law Offices following a car accident that my girlfriend and I were involved in, and we met with David Baez for an in-person consultation shortly after. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and gave us confidence and peace of mind in a situation where we felt initially felt completely overwhelmed. There were times when we felt the communication could have been more proactive, but David was always responsive when we felt the need to check-in, even if there were no significant updates on our case. The process took a little longer than anticipated, but David was honest, thorough, and professional throughout.Overall, great experience and I'd recommend to anyone in need. Thank you David!

After I was injured, and after researching Chicago's best law firms, I found Willens Law and read their reviews. After meeting Matt, I retained their services, along with the special efforts of his Partner, David Baez.They handled my case in a professional, efficient manner, while keeping me regularly informed. We worked incredibly well together, and won a very nice settlement. You would be foolish not to consider Willens Law for your Counsel, as I did. I highly recommend them!Ed Dybas

Working with Willens Law was a pleasure. They were responsive and extremely pleasant whenever I had questions or concerns. In my case, I personally took a little longer than I should have to start the process on my end, but David was able to pickup on my delay and process my personal injury case in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Willens Law and David when looking for an attorney to represent you in a case.

I had a tremendous experience with this law firm, and I would highly recommend them. I had a bicycle injury caused by a negligent Uber car, and when I was first doing research and calling law firms all over the Chicago area to find representation, Matt Willens himself returned my call personally within ten minutes. I found that to be a huge integrity move as every other firm I contacted had a lower level employee call me back. Nothing wrong with that per se, but to have the lawyer whose name is on the door personally return my call meant a hell of a lot to me and was ultimately why I decided to meet with them first.I made an appointment and met Mr. Willens and the fantastic young attorney David Baez in their offices and they were wonderful to deal with. They are down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, tenacious, capable, experienced lawyers who explained the entire process to me in a way I could understand and made me feel comfortable and confident, and we were off and running with my case.I work in a law firm and I know exactly how slowly the wheels of justice turn, and my case was settled in about half the time that these things normally take! Amazing results. Mr. Baez and his team were incredible throughout and kept me informed every step of the way, and negotiated a higher settlement number and a lower fee for the insurance company in the eleventh hour which meant more money in my pocket!! I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case. They are highly skilled and I couldn't be happier. This organization is fantastic and they will produce results for you.

What Types of Cases Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Handle?

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Case?

You are not legally required to have a personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim. You could file all the necessary paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, your chances of winning your case and getting the compensation you deserve are much higher if you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why You Shouldn't Settle Directly With An Insurance Company

Insurance providers will try to get you to settle quickly. In the midst of your crisis, they might offer you what seems like a large dollar amount. The problem is they rarely make an offer of settlement for the true full cost of your damages. Don’t be misled, hospital bills aren’t the only things for which you will need compensation. You also need to keep in mind the suffering and pain associated with your traumatic event.
