Recreational & Boating Accidents
San Jose Auto Accident Lawyer
At Shea & Shea, we represent individuals who have suffered severe or disabling brain or spinal injuries in recreational vehicle accidents throughout the western United States. We have the experience and resources necessary to investigate and present complex claims that depend on highly technical evidence as to both liability and damages. To schedule a free consultation about your legal options, contact one of our personal injury attorneys. We emphasize prompt investigation and thorough documentation in all aspects of accident litigation involving boats, personal watercraft, or all-terrain vehicles such as the following:
- Water ski boats, fishing boats, or runabouts
- Sea-Doos™, Wave Runners™, or Jet Skis™
- Harbor craft from tugs to tour boats
- Three wheelers or four wheelers
- Snowmobiles and dirt bikes
- Swimming pool accidents
In boat accidents, collision, capsizing, fire, or falling overboard, the injuries can range from fractures to spinal cord damage to drowning. In land-based recreational vehicle accidents, especially when the machine is operated by a young or inexperienced driver, soft tissue damage or
severe head injuries can often result from mistakes or hidden hazards.
The lawyers at Shea & Shea apply the same general investigation and litigation principles to boat accidents and recreational vehicle collisions that characterize our broader practice on behalf of victims of serious injuries. We go to work immediately in assembling the right team of experts for investigating the issues that bear on your claim, and we prepare your case under the assumption that it will go to trial.

We have found that in order to realize anything approaching full and fair compensation in any given case, it is necessary to apply steady pressure on the defense through trial preparation. While most of our cases settle on favorable terms for our clients, we often achieve our best results only after we have convinced the defendant's insurer that we will only be too glad to present the case to a jury.
From the earliest stages of your case, we also serve as a resource to help make sure that you are receiving all the treatment and rehabilitative care you need. If you are having trouble getting diagnostic tests, medications, or even surgery because of an insurer's refusal to cover the claim, we can usually resolve the problem.
