Boating Accidents

boating accidentAccording to the United States Coast Guard, there were 5705 recreational boat accidents in 2003, 703 fatalities resulting from boating accidents, and 3888 injuries resulting from watercraft accidents. That same year, more than 10,984 vessels were involved in collisions and accidents across the country. While many people turn to watercraft such as jet skis, privately owned vessels, commercial boats, and other watercraft in order to transport goods or order to enjoy some time on the water, boating accidents can make excursions out to lakes or oceans deadly. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident or if you have lost a loved one in a boating collision, contact Flaxman Law Group, a South Florida Boating Accident Law Firm. We have successfully represented boating accident survivors and victims' families and have helped them get the assistance and the help they needed in order to recover from the accident.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of boating accidents are entirely preventable. Many collisions and accidents involving personal watercraft and other vessels are caused by negligence, intoxication, equipment failure, inadequate training, or weather and water conditions. The inexperience or the errors of the person operating the vessel also cause collisions. Under Florida law, boating operators and boat owners must display a great deal of responsibility and care in order to insure that swimmers, other boats, boat passengers, and others are not injured killed or hurt.
