Recreational boating, on Lake Michigan or elsewhere throughout the state of Illinois, is enjoyed by thousands of people every year on boats, Jet Skis and other personal watercraft. While these activities can be fun for adults and children of every age, when proper safety precautions are not taken by everyone on the water, accidents can result that cause passengers and others to suffer serious injuries.

If you have been injured in a recreational boating accident that was caused by another person’s negligence, it is important to speak with an attorney who will help you fight for the compensation that you deserve.
