Hidden Injuries: What people do not always realize about being injured in any type of vehicle accident is that you may not realize you are actually hurt and you may not feel some of the symptoms from the accident for some number of days, weeks and even months after the boat accident. Hard impacts with the water can actually shift your internal organs bumping them into each other and cause bleeding, even partial failure, and you may not feel a thing at the time it happens. This is not meant to scare you but rather it’s something people just aren’t aware of. It’s better to be safe than sorry and if you are in a boating accident it’s always a good idea to get checked out medically.
Document, Document, Document: From a legal standpoint, we recommend you write down your account of the accident, and keep a journal from the day of the incident onward of any abnormal feeling about your body. Take photos of any bruises, bleeding, and have witnesses and physicians take detailed account. The more detail you have the easier it is for an attorney to assess your case. Remember, the purpose of insurance is to cover your damage and are of course in the business of making money and sometimes do not have your best long term health interest in mind.
