A result of alcohol…

If alcohol was involved or suspected as a contributing factor to the accident you will need an attorney to protect your rights. There are not always as many Sherriff’s deputies or Coast Guardsmen out on the water as is needed. There is just too much water to police. This allows people to more easily consume alcohol while boating. If you need to prove your claim of alcohol involvement you need knowledge of the law. Goldman and Associates has almost 30 years of experience in this area of the law. They can help you recover damages for this kind of boating accident.
