 Brian Grabowski, Christi Lewis Colorado River Boating Accident Labor Day Weekend

Fatal Boating Accident on Colorado River; 2 Dead; 2 Missing, 9 Hospitalized

CALIFORNIA, (Sept. 4, 2018) — Brian Grabowski, 50, of Tulare, and Christi Lewis, 51, of California, have been identified as two of the four people missing when two boats collided head-on Saturday night on the Colorado River at the California-Arizona border. They were found dead in the days following the crash.

Kirra Drury and Raegan Heitzig, both of Ventura, California, remain missing.  The four people went missing after Saturday’s collision where 16 boaters were thrown in the water. The body of Lewis was found on Monday and Grabowski was found on Tuesday. The two other missing women have not been located.

The head-on collision occurred about 8 p.m. on Saturday night when the two boats hit each at speeds estimated to be 50 mph. The crash took place near Moabi Regional Park on a stretch of the Colorado River north of Lake Havasu. One of the boats was carrying 10 people and the other had six aboard when the crash took place. All 16 people were thrown into the water and none were wearing life jackets.

Nine other people were injured in the collision including two who were airlifted to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, police said. Seven people were transported by ambulance and treated for less serious injuries, officials said.

A Go Fund Me page was established for the family of Kirra Drury.

BOAT ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION

In the aftermath of this boating collision, police are reviewing the facts and determining what caused the crash and who is liable. It’s unknown at this time whether alcohol was a factor.

If you were injured or have lost a loved one in a boating accident, it’s likely that there will be significant financial losses such as medical bills, lost wages and more.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
