Though perhaps not surprising, Florida has more boating accidents than any other state. As vessels collide due to negligence, a lack of experience, or even alcohol consumption, passengers can fall into the water and drown or experience serious impact injuries. Either way, it can turn a relaxing trip into a nightmare.

As personal injury specialists, we urge you to get in contact with The Injury Firm if a boating accident that wasn’t your fault has led to medical bills, time off work, and pain and suffering. Not only are we committed and passionate in this field, we have the resources to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Compensation for Boating Accidents

Unfortunately, the vast majority of boating accidents are avoidable since they’re caused by speeding, lack of attention to safety procedures, lack of training and experience, negligence, having no lookout, drinking, drugs, or being generally reckless.

This being said, we must also note that the manufacturer of the boat or boating equipment could also be responsible for injuries/death. When a boat has been poorly designed or poorly made, this can have devastating consequences and compensation may be attainable for such incidents.

In any boating accident case, determining liability is a key aspect. With this in mind, we highly recommend teaming up with a boating accident lawyer such as our experts at The Injury Firm. Having dealt with multiple cases over the years, we know how to build a strong one that proves liability and yields the most compensation. What’s more, we also know how to avoid the common mistakes that have the potential to reduce compensation.

Often, people remember to claim for medical bills, but they don’t realize the extent to which compensation is due. For example, your claim should include an amount for lost income, pain and suffering, and even for any future medical expenses you’re likely to encounter. As long as the expense arises as a direct result of the boating accident, you deserve compensation because it wouldn’t have otherwise existed.

Handling a Boating Accident Claim Yourself vs Legal Representation

If you’re seriously injured or claiming on behalf of a relative that died, we highly recommend a boating accident attorney. In fact, even if you feel up to the legal challenge, we still recommend legal help because professionals will understand:

  • What you should and shouldn’t do
  • How to gather evidence and build a strong case
  • How to avoid the clutches of the slippery insurance companies
  • How to maximize the claim
  • What to consider when calculating non-economic expenses

Since our team at The Injury Firm has been handling these types of issues every single day for many years, it’s fair to say we feel confident in our ability. Additionally, we also recommend legal help over going it alone because we have the resources to take your case as far as it needs to go.

What Boating Accident Injury Compensation Will I Get?

Ultimately, the amount you receive will depend on a number of factors. During our free boating accident consultation, we can discuss all these factors while also talking about the next steps. Thanks to our brilliant policies, you won’t pay anything until the compensation has been recovered so you can hold the negligent party responsible without taking a huge personal risk.
