Boating Accident Lawsuit Involving Seven People Ends with a Large Settlement

Summer time is prime time for warm weather accidents. Boating accidents are really quite common this time of year, and when they happen the victims are right to pursue legal action. One boating accident in particular resulted in the victims receiving a six-figure settlement. 

The Investigation

The incident occurred on the Lake of the Ozarks, and there were two boats involved. The investigators concluded that both of the boats' drivers were to blame for the crash because both acted negligently. 

A total of seven people were injured as a result of the crash, and three of those people suffered severe injuries. One woman was also trapped beneath a boat when it capsized. Fortunately, no one was killed in the accident, but every victim deserved to be compensated. 

The Settlement

There were multiple insurance companies that were involved in this case. More than a total of $125,000 was paid to those who suffered injuries. That money was used to cover the costs of their medical bills, and possible pain and suffering.
