South Florida Boating

South Florida Boating Accident Lawyer

Few activities can boast to be as fun and relaxing as a boat ride on a sunny afternoon; that’s probably why interest in boating and other water activities is on the rise. Florida has been named the number one spot for boating across the nation, with nearly 900,000 registered boaters living in the state.

When Boating Becomes Dangerous

While boating offers Florida residents and tourists a great opportunity to have some decent family fun on the water, the increase in water-related activities has also caused a spike in accidents. Nation-wide, the U.S. Coast Guard states that there are annually 4,062 boating accidents each year with hundreds of the accidents turning fatal.

What Causes Boating Accidents

While some boating accidents occur due to weather or other unstoppable forces, many of them are brought on by the boat operator. In many cases, alcohol plays an important factor in the accident, as 15 percent of all crashes in Florida are alcohol and drug related. When under the influence, it can be difficult for operators to maintain control of the boat, and crashes are to be expected. Negligence, inexperience, and violations are also frequent reasons for boating collisions. Sadly, not only do boating accidents affect those who are intoxicated and inexperienced, but waterway collisions can result in innocent lives being impacted.

Costs Associated with Boating Accidents

If you’ve been the victim in a boating or personal watercraft accident in south Florida, you realize there are various costs associated with the collision.
