Have you been injured or lost a loved one in a Missouri boating accident?  Contact Mr. Campbell today for the experienced legal help you need!  You will never pay a fee unless we get you money!

Mr. Campbell is a skilled boating accident lawyer with a proven track record.  He has been a lawyer specializing in injuries for over 40 years.  He has collected Millions of Dollars for his clients who have been injured or killed in Missouri, including boat accidents.  Mr. Campbell will handle your claim with the same care and attention as if it were his loved one’s claim.  He focuses his boating accident practice on Missouri towns south of I-70 Highway including: Kansas City, Warrensburg, Sedalia, Columbia, Jefferson City, Washington, Rolla, Lebanon, Farmington, Cape Girardeau, Carthage, Springfield, Joplin, West Plains, Poplar Bluff, and Lake of the Ozarks.

Boating is a popular family activity and when you are out on Missouri lakes and rivers, the last thing you expect is to be involved in a dangerous boat accident.  However, in 2013, the United States Coast Guard counted nationwide 4,062 boating accidents that involved 560 deaths, 2,620 injuries and approximately $39 Million Dollars in property damage as a result of recreational boating accidents.  According to the Coast Guard, the top 5 primary reasons for boating accidents were boat operator inattention, improper lookout, boat operator inexperience, excessive speed, and boating machinery failure.  Alcohol use also was a contributing factor for accidents, along with navigation rules violations, force of wave/wake, hazardous waters, and weather conditions. 

In Missouri, a boat operator is responsible for your injuries if he or she is “Negligent”. “Negligence“ is a legal term that means:

·         The boat operator owed a duty to commit a certain act or refrain from committing an act;

·         The boat operator did not meet this duty (“breach of duty”);

·         This “breach of duty” caused injury to you;

·         The boat operator’s actions (or inactions) were the proximate cause of your injuries;

·         You suffered actual damages (i.e., lost wages, medical bills, property damage, etc.)

When you hire Mr. Campbell, he will begin a thorough investigation, which may include:

·         Reviewing the boat operator’s driving history and credentials;

·         Investigating the scene of the accident or photographs;

·         Interviewing any witnesses to collect different accounts of the accident;

·         Reviewing medical records and documents of your injury;

·         Consulting expert witnesses for potential causes or other information critical to the accident;

·         Digitally recreating the accident;

·         Negotiating with attorneys and insurance company representatives.
