Recent press reports describe the death of a 60 year old woman who was apparently thrown from her sailboat when it collided with a 25' powerboat.
This is a tragic situation where a sailing event in Newport, RI leads to the death of a sailor. Because the maritime law has complicated processes that may favor the vessel owner, if you're ever involved in such a sailing collision, it's important to retain a Rhode Island maritime lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. Proctor-in-Admiralty John K. Fulweiler ONLY practices maritime law and ONLY represents those injured and killed at sea including on Narraganset Bay, Rhode Island.
