Southern Mississippi Personal Injury Lawyers

A boating accident or ATV accident is similar in some ways to an automobile accident, but there are important differences. In order to maximize compensation for injuries — or collect compensation at all — your attorney must understand the unique legal and insurance issues.

The law firm of Owen, Galloway & Myers, in Gulfport, Mississippi has represented personal injury victims since 1981. Our lengthy record of settlements and verdicts includes many cases of fishing boat, motorized watercraft and off-road vehicle accidents. If a family member suffered serious injury as the operator, as a passenger or as a bystander, please contact us today.

Boating Accidents, ATV Accidents and Recreation Injuries

Our founding attorneys, Joe Sam Owen and Ben F. Galloway, have 75 years of combined experience in personal injury and wrongful death litigation on the Gulf Coast and Southern Mississippi. Over the years, they have recovered damages in a wide array of cases:

  • Boating accidents on the rivers, bayous and bays
  • Personal watercraft (Jet Ski) injury
  • All-terrain vehicles (four-wheelers, three-wheelers, dirt bikes)
  • Golf cart accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Swimming and diving injuries
  • Drownings or near-drownings
  • Hunting accidents

Rightful Compensation for Serious Injury

Owen, Galloway & Myers is adept at proving the negligent, reckless or intentional actions of the other party responsible for the accident, and locating insurance coverage to pay our client's damages. We also have a solid track record in product liability lawsuits against the manufacturers of defective and dangerously designed boats, personal watercraft, or ATVs such as the Yamaha Rhino.

Off-road and boating accidents often result in severe injuries — head trauma, back and neck injury, amputation, broken bones or lacerations. We work to ensure that the compensation you receive covers medical bills and surgery, ongoing care, lost earnings, lasting disability, and pain and suffering.

Our law firm emphasizes thorough and professional methods to put our client in the best position for a full settlement or jury trial. We are commonly sought by other law firms for co-counsel or local representation, and welcome those inquiries.
