Boating Accidents

Attorneys for those injured in Boating Accidents on Lake Cumberland and all Kentucky Waterways

If you’ve been injured in an accident involving a commercial boat, recreational watercraft, or jet ski, you may be entitled to compensation. The personal injury attorneys of Freeman Childers, Attorneys at Law represent individuals who have been injured on the Kentucky waterways by the negligence of others. Kentucky may be a landlocked state, but our rivers, lakes, and tributaries, are heavily populated by commercial and private watercraft. Accidents are an unwelcome but common occurrence on the water. And just as with car wrecks, when two boats collide, there’s a high probability that someone will be injured.
