How can I pursue compensation after a boating accident?

If you have been injured in a boat accident where someone else is partially or fully at-fault for your injuries, you may be able to make a claim for compensation under the Marine Liability Act. However, barring exceptional circumstances, the maximum amount you can recover for loss of life or injury in such an accident is $1 million (and $500,000 for other claims). Some boat owners may have purchased insurance that offers compensation similar to the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule for motor vehicle accidents, but it is not mandatory.
