Boat accidents occur frequently on the Space Coast and elsewhere in Florida. Some people are injured on the water because of the negligence of other boaters. Unfortunately, alcohol plays a role in many of these injuries, which can be serious and fatal. Poor judgment and inadequate safety equipment cause other accidents.
Whether the injury occurred during a recreational activity or involved a commercial vessel, people injured because of someone else's negligence have the right to be compensated for their losses. If you or a family member experienced a boat injury, you need a lawyer who can properly assess the situation and help you understand your legal rights.
