Boat Accidents


Florida Boat Accident Lawyers

Every year, thousands of people enjoy boating activities along Florida's inland waterways, and its Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Unfortunately, the congestion on Florida waterways also increases opportunities for serious boat accidents that result from reckless, inexperienced or negligent watercraft operators. Every year, thousands of Florida residents and tourists suffer serious, preventable injures, including brain and spinal cord injuries, paralysis and even death, as a result of boat accidents. In the aftermath of a boat accident, these victims and their families are left to cope with exorbitant medical bills, lost wages and even funeral expenses.
