Jacksonville Maritime

In a 2015 report published by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, our state has the highest number of boating accidents in the nation. This is a troubling statistic. Both recreational and work-related watercraft use come with serious risks — and can result in serious injury.

If you suffer an injury in a boat accident due to the carelessness of another person or entity, you may be due compensation. It's vital to seek consultation from experienced maritime accident attorneys, as these laws are complicated. At the Jacksonville firm of Morgan & Morgan, our lawyers have decades of experience with maritime law and want to help. Just fill out a free case evaluation form to get started.

How Do Florida Boat Accidents Happen?

Many people flock to Florida for the access to our beautiful waterways. In Jacksonville in particular, our proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, St. Johns River, and Mill Cove brings many people to the area. We have a large amount of watercraft and boats out on those waterways at any given time, which increases the chance for maritime accidents.

You may find yourself involved and injured in any of the following accidents through no fault of your own:

  • Safety equipment failure or violation
  • Operator inattentiveness
  • Operator under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Improper training or driver error
  • Driving an impaired vessel
  • Reckless driving or speeding
  • Failure to properly supervise
  • Colliding with other boats or objects
  • Navigation in inclement weather or rough seas

If you do, contact a knowledgeable Jacksonville boating accident lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your case and protect your rights. When these accidents occur due to the carelessness of another, you may be due compensation for your boating injuries, including medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Maritime Injury Law in Florida

Maritime law can be complicated because it intersects with both state laws and federal laws. It can cover anything from a Jet Ski injury to a cruise ship accident. The two most prominent maritime laws are the Jones Act and the Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA).

These laws have a short statute of limitations — you only have three years to file a claim against a negligent party. This is why it's so important to consult with a boating accident law firm as soon as possible after your accident.
