Boating Accidents

OFTEN THE RESULT OF NEGLIGENCE

Boating accidents are often the result of another person’s negligence

With ideal boating weather and water located on three sides and throughout the state, boaters can enjoy the luxury of year-round boating, which is also why Florida leads the U.S. in boating accidents every year.

Boating accidents can result in serious injuries and even death.

What is the cause of most boating accidents?

There are many reasons that boating accidents happen. Sometimes a boat operator fails to take into consideration the weather. Other times alcohol or drugs come into play. Occasionally people are just not paying attention.

The operator of the boat is not always the party responsible for boating accidents. There are situations where the boat itself is defective. Regardless of how a boating accident occurred, a skilled personal injury attorney can help you determine who is responsible.

Why do I need a personal injury attorney for my boating accident?

Boating accidents have a different set of laws than accidents that take place on land, so our personal injury attorneys can help you navigate your case. Florida has some of the most relaxed requirements when it comes to operating a boat. There are different filing deadlines and pleading requirements for boating accidents. Another difference in how your claim will be treated is if you are a guest or employee on the boat. While not all cases are going to be the same, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages as well as pain and suffering.
