Just like “drunk driving” is a problem, so is “drunk boating.” Alcohol consumption occurs even more frequently with boat driving than it does with automobile driving. Locally and nationally, alcohol consumption is a key factor in causing boating deaths and accidents. Hennepin County alone issued 106 citations for boating while intoxicated.

Most do not have the financial resources to pay for a lawyer on an hourly basis – especially for a really good lawyer. The answer to this dilemma is the contingent fee contract where the lawyer doesn’t get paid by the hour. Instead, the lawyer gets paid on a “commission basis” like a real estate agent, as a percentage of the settlement produced. The Schmidt Salita Law Team offers contingent fee contracts in most cases.
