Toledo Swimming and Boating Accident Lawyers

Lake Erie and the Maumee River provide the people of Toledo and Northwest Ohio with fantastic recreational opportunities. And where people play, swimming and boating accidents do happen — some of which are not really accidents at all.

At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, our attorneys take a hands-on approach in working with clients, keeping them fully informed and involved in the process throughout. Since 1973, our firm has been helping people in the Toledo area and throughout Northwestern Ohio recover compensation for serious personal injuries, wrongful deaths, and other losses resulting from:

  • Charter boat accidents
  • Pleasure boat accidents
  • Jetski/personal watercraft accidents
  • Accidents and injuries caused by drunken boaters
  • No lifeguard on duty
  • Inadequately trained lifeguards
  • Inadequate swimming pool design
  • Improper marking of swimming pools
  • Motel and hotel swimming pool negligence

We believe in the importance of preparing every case for trial from the very beginning. This approach enables us to negotiate settlements from a position of strength and ensures that we will not be caught flat-footed should litigation become necessary. In swimming pool and boating accident cases, we work with outside experts and consultants as needed to investigate these accidents and document the evidence. We then use sophisticated case presentation strategies and technology to convey not only what happened and why it was wrong — but to convey it convincingly and to get our clients the help they deserve.
