Florida Boating Accidents

Cause of Boating Accidents

Boating accidents and collisions are occurring more frequently because of faster boats and the increased number of boats in the water. Serious personal injury and death in boating accidents are most often caused by collisions with other boats or other types of water craft such as Jetskis, speedboats, bayou boats, motorboats, canoes, sailboats, paddleboats, ferrys, and more. Boating and personal watercraft injuries and deaths are often caused by a boat capsizing, resulting in people falling overboard. Alcohol is often a major factor in boating injuries, though defective boat equipment may also play a role in boat accidents. An Experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyer in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

Overall, reckless driving, carelessness, excessive speed, operator inattention, and inexperience were the most common factor contributing to boating accidents. Most boats involved were personal watercraft (jet skis), cabin motorboats, and open watercraft. A knowledgeable Florida Injury Attorney in the Boating Accident Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

Nearly one-quarter of all boating accidents can be directly linked to alcohol consumption. The United States Coast Guard estimates that boat operators with a blood alcohol concentration above .10 are more than 10 times as likely to be killed in a boating accident than an operator who has not been drinking. A skilled Florida Attorney in the Boating Accident Claims area will fight for you.

Some examples of personal injuries that result from boating accidents and watercraft accidents are paralysis, brain injury, spinal cord injuries, herniated and ruptured discs, fractures, knee injuries, and death. An Experienced Florida Lawyer in this topic will fight and fight and fight for you.

When operating a boat or personal watercraft, each boat owner and operator has a duty to exercise the highest degree of caution and care in order to avoid injuries that could result in death and can be liable to victims of accidents of when they fail to discharge this duty.
