Recreational accidents refer to power sports that cause serious injury to the body and head often include high speed and high impact.  In some cases, alcohol and or drugs may also be a factor in the accident.  There are times, however, when negligence, poor maintenance or dangerous conditions cause accidents and injuries. In recreational activities, there is always a chance of injury. But if the injury is caused by negligence, the person who caused the accident should be held accountable.

  • Were you injured in a boating or jet ski accident? Jet Skis and other personal watercraft can cause serious injuries. Drunk boating accidents are all too common in states like Wisconsin.  A fast-moving boat operated by someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol is all it takes for a bad accident to happen.  Another example could be a boat crossing a tow line, injuring a skier or a boat striking someone swimming in the water.  If your boating accident injury was caused by another's negligence, talk to an Action Law boat accident lawyer.
  • Were you injured in a snowmobile accident? Although winter snow can look soft and fluffy, falling into it after being ejected from a snowmobile operating at high speed... is no soft landing.  Snowmobiles that run into trees are going to cause injuries to the driver and passenger.   Snowmobiles that zip over hills and hit an innocent bystander are likely to cause serious injuries.  If your snowmobile accident was caused by the negligence of another person, contact Action Law snowmobile accident lawyers.
  • Were you injured in an ATV Accident?  ATV's are popular power sport and utility vehicles in Wisconsin.  When an ATV is operated recklessly, multiple serious injuries and wrongful death can result. One example involves an ATV moving at high speed, flipping over in a ditch, and crashing into innocent bystanders can suffer catastrophic injuries.  Another example can include being the passenger of an ATV operator who crashes under the influence.
  • Were you injured in a different kind of recreational accident?  Sports combined with negligence can cause serious injuries in any kind of recreational accident.  Careless maintenance or supervision of a swimming pool can cause a drowning accident. Skiing and snowboarding pose very real risks for enthusiasts.  Mini-bikes or any operational toy with wheels and a motor can cause grievous injuries — quadriplegia, paraplegia, brain injury, multiple broken bones and other injuries.  Talk to a lawyer who can investigate and assess whether you have a case.

Before Contacting a Personal Injury Lawyer, You Should Know:

The insurance adjustor is on the insurance company’s side, not yours.

Some are aggressive and try to scare people into not making a claim or into accepting very little compensation. Other adjustors seem kind and helpful — and then use your own words to deny your claim. The bottom line: the less the insurance company has to pay out, the more incentive the adjustor has.

We will investigate to establish liability and damages.

Our law firm has extensive resources to investigate an accident and assess who was at fault, regardless of the accident type. We work with a range of investigators and experts whose expertise provides crucial information for our determination of a fair settlement value.

Our attorneys can explain your coverage and your rights.

If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, your insurance company may fail to tell you about your rights under your own policy. We can also help you understand your medical coverage under your health insurance policy.
