Florida Boating Accident Attorneys
What to Do If You’re Injured in a Boating-Related Incident
With 2,000 marinas, 1,700 miles of rivers, more than 3 million acres of lakes and 8,000 miles of coastline, Florida is a boater’s paradise. Unfortunately, it also has the highest number of boating accidents.
Florida is well-known for boating accidents. For good reason too! We live in Florida–enough said there, right? As the temperature heats up and Florida’s waterways become more congested, boating accidents spike.
Many of our attorneys are native Floridians who grew up boating and navigating our state’s waterways. And, sadly, because they have seen so many people in their own communities hurt and sometimes killed by careless boat operators, they are now dedicated legal advocates for those injured by negligent boaters.
If you or a loved one has been injured on or by a boat, call us now at (800) 391-4337 to speak to one of our Florida boating accident attorneys about your case at no cost to you.
Boating Rules You Should Know About
Boaters have a number of obligations on the water. Much like on land, there are certain “rules of the water” that must be followed when passing or crossing paths with another vessel.
These rules of the water include:
- Maintain a safe speed. Except where speed is restricted by regulation or the waterway is marked by a “no wake” or “slow speed” zone, you must judge “safe speed” for yourself, taking into account visibility, vessel traffic, your boat’s ability to maneuver, and the weather conditions.
- Avoid a collision. Easy right? Not always, especially when there are boat operators out there not playing by the same set of rules as everyone else. Inexperience is not an excuse.
- NO DRINKING. A day out on the lake goes hand-in-hand with drinking, right? Think again. While boating and drinking seems pretty common, it’s neither a good idea nor is it legal. Not only could you seriously injure yourself or someone else, you could also be arrested for boating while intoxicated and face serious penalties, including fines or even jail time.
There are also numerous other safety tips, especially if you are boating with children or tubing on the water. Check out our blogs on boating to learn more about how you can stay safe and protect others.
