Boating Accident Attorney
Boating in South Florida is our favorite pastime. Unfortunately, when people are careless, drink alcohol and fail to pay attention to their surroundings, combined with inexperience, serious and sometimes fatal boating accidents can happen. Famed pitcher for the Florida Marlins, Jose Fernandez, is a prime example of what can happen when drugs, alcohol, darkness and speed mix together on the waterway. Add to this equation a very powerful engine and sometimes two. This is a recipe for disaster if boating rules are not followed.
Immediately after any boating accident, it is essential to speak with a Boating Accidents Attorney who can begin to investigate and collect evidence before it disappears. If you’re hurt in a serious boating collision, you will likely miss time from work, suffer from pain, have to deal with insurance agents, claims adjusters, insurance companies, hospital bill collectors, doctors, chiropractors, the police and others. During this extremely hectic, stressful and uncertain time, an experienced Boating Accidents Attorney, which is a sub-specialty of personal injury law, can be your advocate and can also assist you with not only your physical injuries, but your emotional injuries as well. The right lawyer will take care of all the details so you can concentrate on your recovery. Most importantly, a skilled Boating Accidents Attorney can help you recover financially.
Just like where automobile injuries are concerned, there can be a variety of factors involved in each individual case. Whether there was defective design, equipment failure, captain error or some other type of cause, your attorney can get to the bottom of it and help you get the compensation you deserve to get on with your life. An experienced boat accidents attorney can stay on top of any and all investigative developments, so you can focus on feeling better.
Unfortunately, most boat accidents happen due to negligent behavior on the part of other boaters. While boating is typically considered a leisure activity, boats are still vehicles, and need to be handled properly, lawfully and safely. Boating while impaired or distracted can put lives at risk, so it’s essential to have a thorough investigation after any type of boating accident to determine exactly what happened.
Boating accident victims have important rights under Florida law that allow them, under certain circumstances, to obtain recovery for their losses, including compensation for bodily injury, current and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, mental anguish as well as pain and suffering.
