Paul came to us after suffering a serious injury to his knee while holidaying on a houseboat on the Murray River. His knee was injured when the houseboat decking gave way from under him, resulting in his leg falling through a hole. The decking had broken previously during the same charter and the houseboat owner took no action, allowing Paul and his friends to continue to use the houseboat.
After determining which state’s law applied we were able to issue proceedings against the houseboat owner alleging that it had constructed the houseboat incorrectly and failed to maintain the houseboat properly. The houseboat owner then joined the manufacturer of the decking used on the houseboat to the claim arguing that the decking boards it manufactured were faulty.
Actual Client Testimonial
A big thank you for all that you have done for me and the result achieved. When I initially decided to seek legal advice after my accident, I chose Henry Carus + Associates because I believed that they would be more thorough and actually care more than some firms that seem to advertise everywhere. I was right. Wendy and her team’s tireless effort led to a great result in what would have been a difficult case given the different legislations as a result of the location of the accident. Thank you all and I have no problem in recommending Henry Carus + Associates to friends and family, or using them again if I need assistance.
