Six Figure Settlement for Boating Injuries

Attorney Matt Lindholm recently reached a settlement for a client who was injured on a charter boat while fishing in Alaska with his family.  The captain of the boat failed to reduce the speed of the boat while returning from their fishing trip and his the wake of another boat which caused the client to be launched into the ceiling of the boat and back to the floor causing substantial injuries.  The insurance company initially wanted to place the blame on the boat that produced the wake however maritime laws and boating regulations squarely placed the cause of the injuries on the boat captain.  Thanks to our client for trusting us to handle an ocean based injury case while be are based here in the middle of some corn fields!
