Boating Accident Attorney in Fort Lauderdale

When we think of going out on a boat, we think of enjoying the water, soaking up some sun, and spending time with loved ones. For many, it’s about getting away from the stresses of the world and just forgetting about work deadlines for a few hours. Unfortunately, our plans don’t always work out the way we imagined.

In the past, we’ve worked with numerous people who planned a relaxing trip on the water only to then experience a boating accident. Often, there’s confusion as to whether compensation is possible, but the laws of the water are similar to those on the road. If somebody else is to blame for the boating accident, you can claim monetary compensation.

Causes of Fort Lauderdale Boating Accidents

Since we’re blessed with gorgeous sunshine and glistening waters, boating accidents are common in not only Fort Lauderdale but in Florida as a whole. Sadly, a high percentage of these incidents are caused by the negligence of operators. After simply going onto the water to enjoy some peace, you don’t then deserve to face all sorts of medical bills and lost income and this is where we come in at The Injury Firm.

Assessing Your Rights

As we’ve already seen, you have a legal right to compensation if you’ve been injured in a boating accident and had to experience costs that otherwise wouldn’t have occurred without the negligence of the guilty party. When an operator decides to take a vessel onto the water, they have an obligation to be vigilant, under the legal alcohol limit, and respectful of other vessels.

Even if you were aboard the boat involved in a watercraft accident with the negligent operator, compensation may still be possible with the right boating accident attorney. These days, the majority of operators will have insurance so we will deal with the insurance company on your behalf and navigate the tricks they employ to negotiate a lower settlement.

Over the years, we’ve even seen individuals suing their friends after they refused to pay for medical bills and other expenses. If this is something you want to do tactfully, get in touch.

As well as individuals, it may be that you want compensation from a boat manufacturer; another party that has an obligation to provide a safe product. If a defect or unsafe feature caused an injury, you’re eligible for compensation.

The Injury Firm - How Can We Help?

If you recognize anything we’ve discussed here so far, we highly recommend getting in touch with a boating accident attorney. With The Injury Firm, we have extensive experience in this field so we’re confident in our ability to get the compensation you deserve. Sure, you could go it alone but why do this when you can have experts handling the problem? Meanwhile, you can concentrate on getting healthy once again.

If you’re worried about finances after being hit with heavy medical bills and potentially having to take some time off from work, don’t worry. We start with a free consultation (no obligation, of course!). From here, you’ll only pay for our legal representation once the compensation has been recovered.

With a boating accident lawyer by your side, the guilty party can be held accountable and we can send a message that negligence on the water just isn’t acceptable.

Seeking Compensation For Boating Accident Injuries

For those seeking compensation, cases can either be settled before extensive legal proceedings or they can reach court. If the latter, The Injury Firm will help you to compile evidence and prove that the defective product or operator’s negligence caused your injuries.
