Tallahassee Boating Accident Attorney
Boating accidents are quite different from regular traffic accidents on the road, not only in the manner in which they happen but also in what the laws say about these cases. For example, per Florida's boating laws and regulations, you cannot operate a personal watercraft half an hour after sunset to half an hour before sunset, even if you use navigation lights. But you can do that with your personal car. See the difference? That's why you need a Tallahassee boating accident attorney from a powerful injury firm like Morgan and Morgan to fight for you. Our attorneys understand these laws and know how to bring the best legal arguments on behalf of their clients. To get started, contact us today for a free case evaluation.

What Should I Do After a Boating Accident?
Right after a boating accident, your first priority should be safety and medical attention for anyone injured, including yourself. Once you've ensured everyone's safety, try to document the scene as much as possible. Take photos, note the conditions, and gather contact information from witnesses and other parties involved.
It's also crucial to report the accident to the authorities, especially if there are injuries or significant property damage worth at least $2,000, according to Florida boating laws.
Then, even if you think you're not seriously hurt, get a medical checkup —some injuries might not show immediately. Finally, contact Morgan and Morgan for a free case review by a boating accident specialist.
Admissible Evidence in a Boating Accident Case
You'll need admissible evidence to build your claim. This can include but is not limited to:
- Photographs or videos of the accident scene;
- Witness statements.
- Police or Coast Guard reports.
- Medical records and expert testimony regarding your injuries and their impact on your life
- Boat maintenance records.
The process of gathering evidence in a boat accident claim requires powerful legal resources. That's one of the things attorneys at our law firm have access to. With us, rest assured that we do not leave any stone unturned in the fight for justice and compensation.
