Establishing Fault in Boating Incidents

In order to pursue a personal injury claim after a boat accident, you must show that the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. Whether you were hit by another boater, experienced equipment failure, or were otherwise injured as a direct or indirect result of negligence, you shouldn’t have to face the consequences alone. Our Pensacola boat accident attorney can help you determine the liable party or parties in your unique situation and work to build a case on your behalf.

Common Causes of Boating Accidents in Florida

There are many factors that can lead to a boat accident. While blameless accidents can and do occur, more often, these accidents are the result of careless or reckless behavior.

Some of the most common causes of boat accidents include:

  • Inexperienced boat operators
  • Distracted boating/operator inattention
  • Failing to follow boating regulations
  • Unsafe boating conditions/weather
  • Speeding/reckless boating
  • Failure to properly keep a lookout
  • Boating under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Faulty and/or defective parts or equipment

Negligence—whether on the part of another boater, parts manufacturer, or some other entity—can lead to serious consequences, including catastrophic injury and death. Often, victims and their families suffer extensive damages, including costly medical bills from immediate and ongoing treatment, loss of income from time taken off work to obtain medical treatment, physical pain and emotional suffering, lost earning ability, and more. Our firm can help you fight for the just compensation you are owed.
