  • Are Boating Accident Claims Challenging?

    Yes, these cases are usually particularly challenging to navigate, and for many reasons. For example, unlike ordinary vehicles, boats are usually governed by maritime laws. These laws will influence the trajectory of your case, which is why you should consider hiring an experienced attorney to represent you. Secondly, liability can fall on multiple parties, making pursuing compensation without legal representation difficult.

  • Possible Liable Parties in Boat Accidents

    Liability for boating accidents can extend beyond the boat’s operator, even though most fingers tend to point towards them when these accidents happen. That said, besides the boat operator, other possible parties may include:  

    • Boat owner
    • Boat rental company
    • Manufacturer
    • Maintenance service providers
    • Other boaters
    • Government entities
  • What Are Some Common Injuries In Boating Accidents?

    Boating accidents can lead to severe injuries and fatalities. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, about 65 people lost their lives in boating accidents in this state in 2022 alone. 

    Some common injuries caused by these accidents include:

    • Head injuries due to falls, collisions, and equipment strikes
    • Drowning caused by falling overboard, capsizing, or lack of life jackets
    • Broken bones from slips, falls, and collisions
    • Lacerations and abrasions caused by sharp edges and propeller injuries
    • Spinal cord injuries from collisions, falls, and being thrown from the boat
    • Hypothermia, due to prolonged cold water exposure
    • Burns from fires, explosions, hot engine parts
    • Amputations as a result of propeller accidents and severe trauma

    These injuries often require extensive treatment, which can also be expensive in the long run. That is why it is always advisable to hire a boating accident attorney to fight for your rights and ensure you receive the compensation you need and deserve.
