Florida is home to more registered recreational boats and water vessels than any other state in the country. Millions take advantage of Florida’s many beaches and beautiful weather by taking trips aboard personal watercraft, cruise ships, and other forms of water transportation every year. But as with any other form of transport, accidents do happen.

If you or a loved one is injured while aboard a recreational water vessel such as a houseboat, a schooner, a sailboat, or a cruise ship, you may be entitled to compensation. The parties responsible for your boating accident can and should be held liable for your pain and suffering, lost income, medical bills, disability, and any other costs and damages you have suffered as a result of your boating accident. The southern boating accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A., have helped many of our clients recover monetary damages after suffering an injury on Florida waters.

What Causes Florida Boating Accidents?

Injuries aboard water vessels can result from a variety of factors. Many boating incidents could have been avoided if all responsible parties had been behaving carefully, attentively, and in accordance with all applicable safety rules and regulations. If someone else’s negligence caused your boating accident, you have the right to recover compensation for your injuries.

Our boating accident attorneys are prepared to hold responsible parties liable after boating accidents caused by, for example:

  • Careless or inattentive operation of a vessel
  • Intoxicated driving of a boat
  • Speeding or other reckless driving
  • Maintenance-related issues
  • Operator inexperience
  • Failure to yield to oncoming vessels
  • Failure to maintain appropriate speeds near docks or land
  • Improper boat loading maneuvers
  • Hazards such as wet floors aboard a cruise ship or other recreational vessel
  • Failure to follow state and federal rules and regulations for the safe operation of a vessel
  • Failure to keep and maintain proper safety equipment aboard a boat

Whatever the cause of your boating injury, if it was the result of someone else’s negligence, our Florida boat accident legal team will investigate your claims, build your case, and fight to ensure that you receive full compensation for your injuries.

Serving Clients Injured on Any Type of Watercraft

Our central and southern Florida boating injury lawyers represent clients hurt on any form of vessel on Florida or U.S. waters. We serve clients injured on watercraft, including, for example:

  • Motorboats
  • Sailboats
  • Personal watercraft (e.g., jet skis, wave runners, Fliteboards, Flyboards, kayaks, canoes)
  • Ferries
  • Commercial freighters
  • Cruise liners
  • Boats or other watercrafts hitting swimmers or skiers

If you were operating your own vessel, if you were swimming or skiing, or if you were on someone else’s boat, so long as someone else’s negligence caused your injury, our Florida boating accident team will fight for your recovery.
