RI And MA Boat Accident Personal Injury News: Bottaro Obtains $200,000.00 Settlement


Practicing personal injury law in Rhode Island and Massachusetts includes helping captains and passengers with boating accident claims.  Recently, I was grateful to obtain a great settlement for my client whose center console failed during voyage.

Rhode Island Client, Massachusetts Boating Accident With Product liability Claims

Our client was an experienced captain and reputable professional.

He had recently purchased a new 23-foot center console with less than 100 hours on it. While operating the boat offshore in relatively calm waters and at a reasonable speed, suddenly, the entire center console uplifted from the base of the boat!

In a split second, the console crashed into our client’s side as he struggled to keep control. The 7 foot, (400lb) center console struck and pinned our client against his boat.

Valiantly, he made it ashore and promptly called the manufacturer and yard.  In pain, he followed up with his doctors. Ultimately, in addition to leg injuries, an MRI established a full rotator cuff tear.

The road to recovery for our client was long, involving many months of physical therapy and epidural injections before ultimately requiring shoulder rotator cuff surgery.

Personal Injury Focus Results In Large Settlement: The Bottaro Law Difference.

Our client knew me in the community and reached out. During my investigation, I personally worked on the case, taking interviews and researching the product issues.

Allegations of defects in products such as boating accidents can give rise to various legal claims, including product liability law.  This can be a complex area of law, but

there was some helpful law in this case for our client.

Diligence in examining the legal causation medical records and research also helped. Ultimately, here at the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC, I was able to obtain a $200,000.00 settlement for our client without his needing to testify in Court.
