Riverside Recreational Boating Accident Lawyers

Riverside County Attorneys and Accidents Involving Personal Watercraft

Recreational boating in Southern California is enjoyed by thousands of people every year who take boats and personal watercraft vehicles out onto the region's many lakes and the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, when proper safety precautions are not taken, recreational boating accidents can result, which cause passengers and others to suffer serious injuries. In the worst cases, passengers may even drown or suffer fatal injuries.

At the law office of Fernandez & Lauby LLP, our attorneys have represented individuals injured in serious boating accidents since 1998 and have built a strong reputation for our knowledgeable, responsive and experienced representation. If you have been injured in a recreational boating accident that was caused by another person's negligence, our lawyers will help you fight for the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

Protect Your Rights With a Riverside Recreational Boating Accident Lawyer

Boats and other recreational watercraft vehicles have the potential to be just as dangerous on California waterways as cars and trucks are on California highways and roads. Factors that commonly lead to boating accidents may include:

  • Inexperienced operators
  • Inattentive driving
  • Poorly maintained boats and boat engines
  • Weather conditions
  • Alcohol and drugs
  • Boating at night without lights and other proper safety features
  • Fighting and horseplay

Boating accidents do not always involve boats colliding with one another. Sometimes, boats collide with piers, harbors and other structures. Other times, individuals on those boats will be knocked overboard or will be hurt on the boats themselves due to violence or negligent behavior.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
