Boating Accident ATTORNEYS

Helping Victims of Boating Accidents Across Connecticut

Although a small state, Connecticut has many lakes, rivers, and a coastline. Increasing boat traffic has led to more people being injured in boating accidents. Injuries on the water can have long-lasting consequences, and you need an experienced attorney to help you pursue the compensation you need. The Connecticut boat accident attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC will fight for you.

When a boating accident happens, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights. Let us help you to explore your legal options in a free, confidential, remote consultation.


We have the experience and dedication needed to successfully represent people who have been seriously injured in boat accidents as well as the survivors of those who suffered a wrongful death in a boat accident. We represent victims of boating accidents involving:

  • Unlicensed drivers
  • Boating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Boating at night
  • Jet skis
  • Accidental drowning
  • Failure to observe boating regulations

There are a number of things that can go wrong on the water when precautions aren’t taken. That’s why boat owners and operators have a legal responsibility to put safety first. We are proud to fight to hold negligent parties accountable, whether the boat in question was owned by an individual or a business. If a product defect of the boat itself or a piece of safety equipment was involved in your injury, we may also be able to pursue a product liability action and also hold the manufacturer accountable.


Taking immediate action is important in any injury claim, and that’s particularly true in boating accidents, where critical information can be washed away quickly, and witnesses disappear. When you meet with us for a free remote consultation, we’ll listen to you, seek to understand how the accident has affected your life, and answer your questions about your legal rights. Then, we’ll start our investigation and prepare the case for the compensation you need.

We’ll handle negotiations with the boat owner’s insurance company on your behalf while you focus on getting better. Often, we’re able to settle these cases out of court, but we’re always prepared to go to trial, including honing our strategies and arguments in our in-house courtroom. Throughout the process, we’ll keep you informed and ensure that we’re always putting your best interests first.

Remember, it’s important to speak with an experienced boat accident attorney right away, before evidence can disappear and important legal deadlines expire. Our consultation is free and we handle boat accident cases on a contingency basis, which means there is no fee for you until and unless we recover on your behalf.
