NEWPORT BEACH, California (July 15, 2013) –  Three women and one man were injured Sunday night when the driver of one boat crashed almost head-on into another boat near the entrance of the harbor, capsizing one boat and sending all four people to local hospitals according to news reports.

Just after 9:30 p.m., officers responded to a 911 call informing them of a major accident between a 25-foot cigarette-type boat that slammed into a smaller 22-foot Boston Whaler boat. Two people were injured on each boat and all four were hospitalized following the accident.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the accident.

Thousands of People Expected to Visit Lake Mead over the Weekend

Saturday, May 25th, 2013

LAKE MEAD, Nevada (May 25, 2013) – According to an article this morning in The Las Vegas Sun, thousands of people are expected to visit Lake Mead this holiday weekend. National Park Service Rangers as well as The Nevada Department of Wildlife game wardens will be on watch for people breaking the law. One important law will be mandatory life jackets for all children under the age of 13. Parents who do not outfit their children in life jackets will have to pay a large fine. Also game wardens and park rangers will be looking for people driving boats while drunk. There will be a sobriety check, as the legal blood alcohol limit for boaters is the same for motorists, 0.08. As always, the goal of law enforcement is zero fatalities and injuries.

“Hopefully everyone will have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend,” states West Seegmiller, owner of The Seegmiller Law Firm in Las Vegas.

Claudene Christian, 42, Killed in Tall Ship Wreck During Hurricane Sandy Storm

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

NORTH CAROLINA — Claudene Christian, 42, of Southern California was one of two people killed Monday on the HMS Bounty ship after storm waves and high winds from hurricane Sandy capsized the ship in the waters, according to news reports.

Christian, a former USC graduate and song girl, was one of 16 crew members aboard the iconic replica of a 1800s tall ship featured in various films including two “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. The U.S. Coast Guard managed to rescue the entire crew except for Christian and Robin Walbridge, 63, the ship’s captain.

Rescue workers found Christian in the ocean and unresponsive about 4:30 a.m. on Monday morning and transported her by helicopter to a nearby hospital, but she was later pronounced dead, reports said.

“The US Coast Guard will investigate this maritime accident to determine if there is liability on the part of the ship’s owner or the captain in charge of the vessel,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Families of victims killed in a ship accident may recover compensation for their losses under some circumstances.”

Deanna Loy Lewis, 58, Killed in Personal Watercraft Crash on Colorado River in California

Monday, September 24th, 2012

NEEDLES, California –  Deanna Loy Lewis, 58, of Mead, Washington was killed Saturday afternoon when her personal watercraft was struck by another rider on the Colorado River, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department report.

About 12:40 p.m., Lewis and a companion were floating on a personal watercraft as they awaited other members of their party when another personal watercraft rider crashed into their vehicle. Lewis was thrown off the watercraft into the river, but was pulled from the water by a doctor in a passing boat. The doctor attended to Lewis and his party took her to Jack Smith Park where she awaited the arrival of paramedics who later took her to Colorado River Medical Center.

Lewis was later pronounced dead at 1:31 p.m.

The Marine Enforcement Unit of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incident.

“Sadly crashes involving personal watercraft can be deadly for many reasons including rider’s unfamiliarity with how to operate them properly as well as factors such as boating under the influence,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, a wrongful death attorney in Southern California. “While those who participate in these types of sports assume some risk of injury, there are incidents where another person’s recklessness or use of alcohol or drugs can be grounds for liability.”
