What Constitutes a Boat Accident - And Who's At Fault?

Put Our Beverly Hills Boat Accident Injury Lawyers On the Case!

 

There are four accident scenarios where Florida law requires a boat captain to take action:

  • Personal injuries requiring more than basic first-aid
  • The disappearance of a person indicating death or injury
  • Damage to property of $2,000 or more
  • Death

In these scenarios, the boat captain must alert one of the following as soon as possible: Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Sheriff of the county in which the accident occurred, or the Police Chief of the municipality in which the accident occurred. In Florida, it is also illegal for the captain of a vessel involved in an accident to leave the scene without giving all possible aid to the involved persons.

Of course, when an accident occurs, who's at fault isn't always clear. However, before you can proceed with a legal case to get compensation for injuries, a party must be identified as legally responsible for the boating accident injury or fatality. This may include: 

  • The captain of the boat you were injured on
  • The captain of another boat or water vessel
  • The boat manufacturer
  • A boat rental company
  • A repair shop responsible for work on the boat

Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to collect some compensation. Your best bet is to contact the experienced boat accident lawyers at Lowman Law Firm. We will help you:

  • Determine how to handle filing a claim based on the determination of what caused the boating accident.
  • Understand the potential compensation you may receive for your injuries.
  • Keep in contact with you during your case, providing your attorney's cell phone number so you can reach out directly anytime.
  • Obtain all documentation available to support your injury case including medical bills and physician testimony.
  • Collect any available evidence related to your accident, including any proof that the other party is at fault when possible.
  • Defend your rights throughout the legal process, and we do not collect a fee unless you win!
