FAQ: Someone in another boat caused my injuries, but we didn’t actually collide with one another. Can I still hold that person responsible?

In some situations, yes. If someone causes your injuries, even if the boats do not collide, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. The question boils down to causation – specifically, was the other boat the proximate cause of your injuries? An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to determine the proximate cause of your injuries based on the facts of the case and the medical documentation from the doctors.
