Robson Forensic marine experts cover the waterfront. We bring real life experience, backed by practical knowledge and education, to clarify the standards of care and applicable rules for recreational boaters. Our casework frequently involves the design, construction and maintenance of small craft as well as their operation.

Design, Construction, Maintenance, and Operation of Small Craft

In 2018 there were more than 12 million registered boats in the United States. There were more than 20 million people using Personal Water Craft. Occasionally, there is one too many boats in the same place and accidents happen. Our experts can efficiently sort through the information to bring clarity and understanding into the legal setting.

Our experts are knowledgeable in all aspects of recreational boating, resulting in reports and testimony that provide a thorough understanding of how and why incidents occur.
