Proving Liability for a Boat Accident in Florida
South Florida is one of the top regions in the entire country for boat lovers. As great as recreational boating can be, it also has the potential to be incredibly dangerous. Private boat owners and private companies have a legal duty to take proper safety precautions to protect their passengers. Unfortunately, in far too many cases, they fail to do so. Indeed, most serious boat accidents occur because of negligence. Some common examples include:
- Lack of proper boat operator training;
- Distracted/inattentive boat operator;
- Drunk boat operation;
- Speeding or unsafe turns;
- Violation of boat safety rules;
- Not enough life vests on the craft;
- Improper boat maintenance;
- Poor behavior by passengers; and
- Unreasonably dangerous conditions on the boat.
All boat accidents require an immediate investigation. If you or your loved one was hurt on a boat in the Palm Beach County, FL area, our Boca Raton boat accident lawyers are prepared to conduct a comprehensive review of the case. We will determine exactly why the accident occurred, obtain all relevant evidence, and build a strong legal claim to help you get access to financial compensation.
Injured Victims Deserve Full Financial Compensation
Through a boating accident injury claim, plaintiffs have a right to seek financial compensation for their losses. Your settlement should account for both out-pocket-economic losses and intangible damages. Sadly, the large corporations and insurance companies that handle boat accident cases never make the process easy.
