What do I do if I am injured at a beach or on other public property?

The Florida Coastal Management Program is responsible for maintaining signage at public beaches and other waterways. In case of an emergency seek medical attention immediately, document the incident as best you can with photographs and written statements, and contact both an FCWP representative and an attorney as soon as possible.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is responsible for the maintenance of off-highway public property roads, as well as distribution of hunting and fishing licenses and the necessary safety which accompanies these kinds of activities. If you are injured on public property in a fishing, hunting, boating, or “off-roading” accident, seek medical attention immediately and document the incident as thoroughly as possible with photographs and written statements. You should report the incident to the appropriate regional office and contact an attorney immediately about your rights.
