Demanding Justice for Victims of Catastrophic Boating Accidents Nationwide
Boating is meant to be a fun pastime. It’s enjoyed nationwide as an activity that can range from peaceful to exhilarating. What it should never be is dangerous. However, for hundreds of families throughout the United States, that’s all too often what boating becomes. What begins as a day of fun can quickly turn cataclysmic, leaving boaters with life-altering injuries and families left to grieve the loss of a loved one.

Missouri Duck Boat Accident Results in 17 Deaths & 7 Injuries
In July 2018, tragedy struck at Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri.
That evening, a duck boat that was taking a group of 31 passengers around the lake was struck by a sudden storm that resulted in choppy waters and winds reaching 65 mph. The vehicle capsized. In the aftermath, only 14 of those aboard the boat survived. 17 were killed and 7 suffered catastrophic injuries. What makes this tragedy even worse is knowing that it’s not the first time that such incidents have occurred. In the last few years, the company that owned the boat involved in the fatal accident, Ride the Ducks, has been the defendant in several lawsuits for duck boat accidents both on land and in the water. In fact, these boats are so dangerous that they have been referred to as “sinking coffins.”

"They were just so understanding and they got it. They got that we lost our child, they got that no one else probably loved our child like we loved our child, and they understood that. They said ‘We’re going to look at this and do everything we can to try to get your family some kind of justice.’"- Larry C.
