Seeking Compensation for Boat Accident Victims and Their Families
Florida is known for its opportunities to get out on the water. Whether you take a boat out on a lake, the ocean, or another waterway, the weather is perfect for spending a day boating with your family or friends.
Boating can be risky, however, and boat crashes and injuries happen for a variety of reasons. If someone else caused a boat accident where you were injured, you should discuss your legal options with a skilled boat accident lawyer in Orlando. Learn how The Orlando Law Group can help.
Causes of Boat Accidents
Even though boating can be dangerous, many boat operators or owners fail to take proper care to keep others safe from harm. Remember, there is no requirement for training or the need for a license to drive a boat. Most people driving a boat have not had any formal training.
Some common causes of boat accidents include:
- Inexperienced or underage boat operators
- Drunk boat operation
- Distracted boat operation
- Failing to follow the rules of the water
- Running a boat aground
- Capsizing a boat by turning too fast
- Colliding with another watercraft
- Running over a swimmer
- Not following proper procedures for watersports
- Inadequate maintenance of boat rental companies
There are many parties who might be responsible for a boat accident, including the operator of the boat you are on, the operator of another watercraft, a boat rental company, and more. If you suffer injuries, it is critical to identify all liable parties so you can file the right insurance claims to recover for your losses.
