accidents on the waterways may occur for any number of reasons

We will protect your rights and fight to ensure the safety of all boaters. Contact us today.


Boating is a popular pastime on Delaware waterways, and unfortunately leads to many tragic accidents and injuries. Often, these accidents are caused by the negligence of another person. Inexperienced, inattentive, and intoxicated boat operators are leading causes of maritime accidents in Delaware. When someone else’s negligence results in injuries or losses to you or a loved one, you have a legal right to compensation. 

At Morris James, we have been helping victims of negligence get justice and compensation since our firm opened in Delaware in 1932. We have successfully challenged powerful opponents and insurance providers who have the resources and motivation to overwhelm injured victims, at a time when they are dealing with physical and emotional suffering and mounting bills. We shoulder the burden for our injured clients. We deal with the government agencies and insurance companies. We listen to each client's practical concerns and unique needs to advise them about their legal rights and best course of action. 

Our personal injury lawyers can help make the journey back to physical health and financial security easier for you. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident in Delaware, online or call 302.655.2599 to speak with a member of the experienced legal team at Morris James.
