A: Maybe, a lawyer would need to know what caused you to fall, was it your fault or some type of negligence of the boat owner. Also important is where did you fall, did it happen in NJ or in another jurisdiction. I suggest you speak with a good personal injury lawyer to see exactly what your best options are.
