Florida Boating Accident Attorney

Florida has some of the best boating opportunities in the southeast. From our lakes to our shorelines, Florida is a boater’s paradise. Our waterways are a favorite retreat for Florida residents and visitors alike; however, they can also be deadly. Florida has more boating accidents than any other state in the country. There is no doubt that boating is an extremely enjoyable activity but it can also be dangerous.

A boating accident can turn your life upside down in a matter of minutes. In the hands of an inexperienced operator, a high-powered watercraft is just as dangerous as a commercial truck is on land. The injuries sustained in a boating accident can also be just as traumatic and debilitating as those suffered in a motor vehicle accident. Experienced boating accident attorneys can help you and your family receive the compensation you deserve for your damages as you struggle to come to terms with your injuries and how your injuries impact the rest of your life.

What Causes Boating Accidents in Florida?


One of the most common causes of West Palm Beach boating accidents is operator error. Careless boaters rent watercraft thinking they can operate the boat or other watercraft even though they know very little about boating and may have little to no training and experience. Inexperienced boaters underestimate the danger and perils of watercraft. Their lack of knowledge is extremely dangerous and can result in a catastrophic boating accident.

There are many other reasons why a boating accident happens but the one common result is that someone is typically injured. Our West Palm Beach boating accident attorneys help families who are injured due to another person’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness.
