Boating is Popular and Fun, but It Can Also Be Dangerous
Florida’s sparkling shorelines, beautiful bays, lakes, and rivers offer unparalleled opportunities for boating, diving, fishing, and other popular water-related recreations. In fact, over 950,000 boats and other watercraft were registered in Florida in 2018 – more than any other state.
However, hundreds of boating accidents with serious injuries – including 59 fatalities – were also reported in Florida in 2018. If you are injured in a boating accident because of negligence, you must speak at once to an experienced Orlando boat accident attorney at Page & Eichenblatt.
What Are the Causes of Boating Accidents in Florida?
The U.S. Coast Guard tells us that the leading reasons for boating accidents in Florida are:
- a lack of operator training and experience
- boat operators who are impaired by alcohol or drugs
- excessive speed
- inattention and the simple failure to look out for other boats, people, and objects
- defective vessels, boat parts, or boating equipment
For more than twenty-five years, the injury attorneys at Page & Eichenblatt in Orlando have effectively represented clients in central Florida who have sustained boating-related injuries.
What Types of Injuries Can Be Sustained in Boating Accidents?
A personal injury attorney at Page & Eichenblatt will immediately investigate the details of your boating accident to determine if alcohol or defective equipment was a factor. We will question the witnesses, determine who is liable, and hold that party accountable.
The types of injuries that are sometimes sustained in boating accidents – serious spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, for example – can lead to permanent disability and may require life-long medical care. The most tragic boating accidents are fatal accidents.
The injury lawyers at Page & Eichenblatt also represent those who are injured in accidents that involve parasailing, skiing, and the other water-related recreations that are so popular in Florida, and we represent – in wrongful death cases – the survivors of those killed in boating accidents.
Should a Boat Accident Victim Take a Quick Settlement Offer?
If you are injured because of defective boating equipment or by a boat operator’s negligence in central Florida, do not accept any settlement, sign any insurance form, or speak to any insurance company representative before you consult with a boat accident attorney at Page & Eichenblatt.
Any quick settlement offer will very probably be for a figure that is substantially below the real value of your personal injury claim. However, your Page & Eichenblatt injury attorney will be an experienced negotiator who will almost certainly negotiate a better settlement on your behalf.
What Steps Should You Take if You Are in a Boating Accident?
When a boating accident happens, seek or summon medical attention at once. Don’t admit any responsibility or fault. Take photos of the injuries, the accident scene, and the property damage. Make copies of the paperwork you receive from medical providers or law enforcement officers.
Then speak to an experienced Florida boating accident attorney at Page & Eichenblatt. If you’re injured because someone else was negligent, you are entitled by Florida law to full compensation for ongoing and future medical costs, lost income, and all other related damages and losses.
