If you're lucky enough to own Land O' Lakes property on the biggest lakes in town, including Lake Padgett, Bell Lake, Lake Thomas, and Lake Saxon, you probably enjoy the boat life (other watersports enthusiasts and anglers may need to find public waterways just outside the city). All these lakes and all these boats of course mean more boating accidents, whether it's due to an inexperienced captain or a boozy boater. If you've been injured in a boating accident in or around Land O' Lakes, contact the team at Lowman Law Firm for expert help.

So why choose a law firm located in Dade City and not Land O’ Lakes? We believe it is important for us to be where the action happens – and that's at the Pasco County Seat, the Dade City Courthouse. Our office is about a block away so we can stay on top of your case. And, you don’t have to come to us – our team offers home and hospital visits if that’s easier for you with a free consultation.

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

Put Our Land O' Lakes 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 Land O' Lakes 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!

What Our Clients Say About Lowman Law Firm’s Land O' Lakes Personal Injury Attorneys

We faced many obstacles after I was in a car accident and I kept wanting to give up, but Brent fought for me relentlessly the whole time! Although, I know I deserved money from the insurance company to get better, I was in shock how well he made it happen and I made out better than I thought was possible.

I never would have imagined a car accident case being this pleasant. I’ve had a different lawyer in the past and it was not great. I was recommended to Lowman Law firm and immediately I felt important walking through their door. Throughout the entire process I was never clueless about what was going on with the case. They were always responding immediately and staying on top of things.
