Personal Injury in Boat, Jet Ski and Water Skiing Accidents

From high-powered speedboats and Jet Skis to fishing boats and pontoons, boating is a part of life in southwest Missouri. There is little room for error with so many locals and tourists alike competing for a share of popular waterways.

At the Law Offices of Dan Moody and Paul Wacker, L.L.C., we are here to follow up if reckless speed, drinking or other carelessness turned a leisure outing into a tragedy in your family. We provide experienced and aggressive representation for serious injury or wrongful death from boating accidents.

Our legal team is committed to your full compensation.

Based in Springfield, our lawyers handle personal injury litigation in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. Contact for a free consultation.

Southwest Missouri Boating Accident Lawyers

We have handled all manner of watercraft-related mishaps in the Springfield area and surrounding counties of Missouri and Arkansas, including accidents on the Lake of the Ozarks, Bull Shoals, Beaver Lake, Stockton Lake, and other lakes and rivers:

  • Collisions between boats and/or personal watercraft
  • Water skiing accidents
  • Swimmers struck by boats or Jet Skis
  • Collisions with docks and other fixed objects

We have represented passengers, operators and bystanders injured through the negligence of others. Alcohol, excessive speed and inexperience with boats are primary factors in many boating collisions. Other negligence includes operating at night, operating too close to other craft, encroaching on swimming areas, failing to observe the “rules of the road” and negligent entrustment (letting underage kids drive powerboats and Jet Skis).

Dan Moody and Paul Wacker are experienced plaintiff’s attorneys who know how to establish liability and make a case for damages. They are familiar with the serious or catastrophic outcomes of boat accidents, including fatal injuries or drowning, head and face injuries, spinal cord injury, back and neck injuries, leg injuries and severe lacerations.

For example, we pursued litigation on the victims’ and family’s behalf after a boating accident involving a submerged stump in the shallows, and we represented the family of a young girl killed in a Jet Ski tragedy.
