FLORIDA AND MASSACHUSETTS BOATING ACCIDENT LAWYERS - SOUTH FLORIDA AND BOSTON BOATING ATTORNEYS

 

Florida's many beaches, rivers, lakes, bays, canals and its easy access to the Gulf Coast, as well as Massachusetts' rivers, lakes and cape, make both Florida and Massachusetts a popular vacation spot for both residents and tourists. They enjoy swimming or riding on sailboats, yachts, fishing boats, houseboats, Jet Skis, and other personal watercraft.  Unfortunately, boating accidents do happen.  With the advent of modern technology, boats continue to become more powerful.  For the inexperienced operator, they may not be able to control such high-powered boats, which could cause serious injuries to others on the water as they negligently test the limits of their boat. Common injuries to boating accident victims include neck injuries, brain injuries and even death. 

 

Common types of boating accidents include:

 

·  Collisions with other boats, swimmers, or floating or non-moving objects (such as a dock or a pier);

·  Falls from personal watercrafts (PWC) or falling overboard; and

·  Boat capsizing, flooding, sinking, or catching fire. 

 

Common causes of boating accidents include:

 

·  Drunk driving (alcohol use is a factor in over one-third of boating accidents, despite the fact that every state prohibits operating a vessel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs);

·  Operator / sailor inexperience;

·  Negligent (careless) or reckless operation of the boat, Jet Ski, or other vessel;

·  Operator distraction or inattention

·  Speeding

·  Operating / sailing the boat, Jet Ski or other vessel in dangerous waters;

·  Misuse of passenger or skier;

·  Equipment failure;

·  Failing to follow safe boating rules and regulations; and

·  Failing to protect skiers with a proper observer. 

 

Common injuries of boating accidents include:

 

·  Drowning;

·  Spinal cord injures;

·  Traumatic brain injuries;

·  Serious burns;

·  Amputations;

·  Hypothermia;

·  Broken bones;

·  Internal injuries; and

·  Wrongful death. 

 

Boat owners, boat operators, cruise lines, boating manufacturers, and personal watercraft manufacturers are some of the parties that may be held liable in a boating accident injury case.
