Boating Accident Lawyers Can Help Your Recover Damages
After your accident, you may be concerned about how you are going to afford the damages you suffered. Do not worry. With the right legal team by your side, you can ensure that you do not have to pay for any damages out of your own pocket.
Recovering Economic Damages Helps With Your Immediate Finances
Economic damages are ones you will be immediately concerned with following your accident. These are damages that can be defined by a distinct monetary value, and most come with receipts, bills, pay stubs, or other documentation to prove their worth.
These types of damages include:
- Property damage sustained during the accident
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Lost income due to time off work
After your accident, you should begin to compile a list of all your economic damages. The more information that you can present to your attorneys, the easier it will be for them to determine the value of this part of your settlement.
Non-Economic Damages Can Increase Your Settlement Amount

Non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship if a loved one loses their life in an accident
value of these damages, your lawyers will review cases similar to yours. They will then combine the value of your non-economic damages and your economic damages to produce optimal compensation for you.

Boating Accident Lawyers Work for You While You Recover
In addition to helping you recover fair financial compensation, lawyers put their clients first in various other ways. All of their work is done while you rest and take the time necessary to recover from your injuries.
Proving Negligence Is Key to a Full Recovery
When filing a personal injury lawsuit, you must be able to prove that the other party was negligent in their actions. The key elements of negligence are that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care, and they breached that duty, which resulted in your damages.
Your lawyers will work to determine negligence by compiling evidence that supports your claim. Evidence can be recovered from:
- Police reports
- Eyewitness testimonies
- Expert witness testimonies
- Video footage and photographic evidence
Lawyers Speak with Insurance Companies on Your Behalf
After an accident, insurance companies will call you as they try to determine how the accident in question took place. It is important that you remember that the answers you provide can be used against you when determining your settlement amount.
To avoid any issues, you can hire a law firm that has experience speaking with insurance companies on behalf of their clients. They will provide answers that will not negatively affect your ability to recover compensation, all while you rest and recover from your injuries.
Additionally, your lawyers will ensure that insurance companies are taking all of your damages into account. If they do not, then it may be necessary for you to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. In some cases, you may even need to go to court to receive the settlement you deserve.
Representing You in Court
Sometimes it is impossible to reach a settlement with the other party and their insurance company. When this happens, the only way to obtain optimal compensation may be to go to court.
Please note that you only have two years to file your lawsuit per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. While this seems like a long time, this can go by very quickly, and you may lose your right to compensation if you do not file within this time frame.
Our lawyers at Loncar Lyon Jenkins are committed to our clients and their financial recovery. We will not take a settlement just because it is convenient. If we believe that you are not being treated fairly, then we will gladly represent you in court.
