Paducah Boating Accident Attorneys

Aiding Kentucky Locals in Their Time of Need

Here in Kentucky, and in the surrounding area of Southern Illinois and Northwest Tennessee, we have many beautiful lakes and rivers to enjoy on warm summer days. Folks like to take out their houseboat, pontoon, ski boat, bass boat, or jet skis for a day of recreation on the lake.

However, just like motor vehicles, boats, and other personal watercraft can cause accidents and injuries if people do not operate them safely.

Unfortunately, many of these accidents end in fatalities or serious injuries. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a boating or jet ski accident, call Katz Law.

Our boating accident attorneys in Paducah have handled a variety of different boating accident claims and have recovered millions for clients so they can put their lives back together and make as complete a recovery as possible.

Call (270) 778-5110 or contact us online to schedule your free consultation today. We can listen to your story and provide you with options, should you wish to proceed with your case.

Kentucky’s beautiful lakes and rivers include Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, Lake Cumberland, Reelfoot Lake, Nolin River Lake, the Mississippi River, the Cumberland River, and the Ohio River, among others. Because the water is open to all tourists and locals alike, accidents are bound to happen, causing injuries.

Since 1998, our team has handled the following types of accidents that have resulted from using boats:

  • Fires
  • Passenger falls
  • Speeding
  • Capsize accidents
  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Boat collisions
  • Collisions with commercial vessels
  • Reckless boating
  • Boating under the influence (BUI)

Depending on the nature of the boating accident, injuries can range from minor to catastrophic, and include bruises and abrasions, sprains and fractures, broken or crushed limbs, spinal cord and neck injuries, paralysis, internal bleeding, and head and brain trauma. Drowning is, of course, always a possibility whenever individuals are near or in a body of water.

Call (270) 778-5110 to reach a compassionate and experienced Paducah boating accident attorney. We can fight to secure the compensation you need to heal from your injuries.

  • Beyond Pleased with Mr. Katz’s Representation

    Mr Katz represented us in Federal Court on a Lacey Act violation which, if convicted, carried a 5 year prison sentence. We are beyond pleased with Mr Katz’s representation and came away with probation and no prison time. His communication, understanding and patience with us was top notch.

  • Highly Recommend!

    In a complex personal injury case involving a very large and resource rich insurance agency that refused to settle-Katz Law wasn’t intimidated one bit to go to trial. With the understanding that you are just a number to an insurance company, it takes the human element and personal attention that Brian brought to my case that made the difference. After a nearly four year long case that delivered a positive outcome, I cannot recommend Brian and his team enough.

  • Highly Recommend!

    I found myself facing a divorce and needing an attorney. My husband left it up to me to find lawyer we could both use and I picked Brian Katz At my very first consultation with Brian I realized I had made the right choice and I felt comfortable and reassured that I would be in good hands through the process. I did not bring an expensive case to Brian; however, I did not feel we were treated any less than his ‘big clients’. Because of the things Brian told me during my appointments I have continually recommended him to my friends seeking an attorney. Family law is important. It requires time and energy to work things out for everyone, especially the children. It is time well spent and I appreciate the time Brian Katz spent with me.
