Boating and swimming are some of the most enjoyable recreational activities in California. Unfortunately, the negligence of others can sometimes turn a relaxing sport into a tragic incident.
At the law firm of Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora, we provide vigorous and effective representation to those injured on speedboats, ferries, personal watercraft (such as Jet Skis) and other vehicles. We also represent those who suffer swimming injuries in private and public pools. Our lawyers are skilled in the extensive investigations that these cases entail.
From Defective Design To Diving Accidents, We Have The Skill You Seek
Here are a few of the cases that Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora has handled:
- Woman injured due to defective boat design — A 27-year-old woman suffered catastrophic injuries to her face, head and brain when she was swept off a boat and into the propeller. During the 49-day trial, our law firm was able to prove that the X-45 wakeboard boat by MasterCraft had a design defect that led to the accident. The California jury awarded our client $30.9 million.
- Teen suffers quadriplegia in swimming pool accident — A high school student was participating in water polo when he dove head-first into an area of the pool that was only 3.5 feet deep. In addition to paralysis, the 17-year-old suffered a host of other injury-related complications. Our law firm argued that pool employees failed to supervise the area and improperly removed the student from the pool. Our attorneys obtained a $3.5 million settlement for him.
- Woman crushed between two boats — Lauralee Lindblad and her husband were attempting to transfer from their houseboat on Lake Oroville to a marina shuttle when the shuttle pulled away. Mr. Lindblad grabbed his wife to prevent her from drowning. As he did so, the shuttle rammed into the houseboat and injured his wife. She passed away from complications, and our law firm obtained a $5.5 million settlement for the family.
