San Diego area lake Accident: boat collision causes bodily injury...
Mr. Blane represented a minor injured in a boat versus boat collision case. Two boats were in navigable water ways in a local San Diego area lake, when the driver of the at-fault boat, was not paying attention. The collision injured a 12 year-old boy, and others who were represented by another law firm. Depending on what type of boat accident occurred, an attorney is usually needed to identify if a recovery can be presented under California State law, or Federal law since some boat accidents involve navigable water ways that come under the Federal Jurisdiction.
Mr. Blane was successful in obtaining a favorable out-come on the case. The settlement was approved the San Diego Superior Court under the process known as a "Minors' Compromise and Release" hearing.
