Boating can be a relaxing or thrilling activity shared by families and friends all over Florida. But with over one million boats in the state, there is serious potential for accident and injury on the water. After you get medical treatment for your boating injury, call our offices. The Coye Law Firm's aggressive personal injury lawyers can pursue benefits wherever they exist in your claim, whether from another boater, a property owner, or a watercraft manufacturer.
Whether boating for rest and relaxation or thrill and adventure, it is important to be aware of the potential for danger while on the water. Common causes of personal injury associated with watercraft can include:
- Falling Overboard
Boating injuries are not limited to boat operators and passengers, however. With the abundance of water sports and other beach-side activities that take place in Florida, it is possible for accidents to take place while engaged in any of the following activities:
- Using a personal watercraft (jet skis and wave runners)
- Water skiing
Water-side injuries can also result from:
- Dock collisions
- Slips and falls on docks and decks
- Fire explosion
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
Though most people have learned to operate and enjoy their boats responsibly, there are an unfortunate number of boaters who choose to ignore safety precautions. Boating accidents can occur for any number of reasons, but are often associated with drinking while boating and/or allowing a minor to operate the watercraft.
Boat Accident Injuries
Florida boaters should carry boat insurance, but if your accident was caused by a boater who does not carry boat insurance, there may be other methods to collecting damages for you or your loved one. If you are involved in a boat accident, it is important that you get the personal information of the operator of the watercraft that caused the accident.
If you have been involved in a boat accident in the state of Florida, you should contact an experienced Florida boat accident attorney. The qualified accident and injury lawyers at the Coye Law Firm can help you recover damages for your accident.
