There are many reasons why a boating accident can lead to a wrongful death claim in Miami or South Florida:
- A victim is killed in a boating accident because of a tour boat operators’ negligence
- The person maintaining or renting boats is negligent in providing high-quality maintenance or safe boats
- An at-fault boater is under the influence or operates their boat recklessly, causing injuries to other boaters
- A cruise ship company does not screen employees or is reckless in maintenance or some other issue, leading to fatal accidents on a cruise
- The manufacturer of the boat creates a defective boat, leading to fatal injuries
Whatever the reasons for an accident, it is important for the victims’ families to think about the future. Securing compensation can help pay for lost income, can replace benefits, and can help ensure that a family faces the brightest future possible as they struggle to recover from their loss. Do not underestimate the costs of a loss. Memorial expenses and final medical expenses alone can add up to tens of thousands of dollars. In addition, there are many secondary expenses. Young children may need counseling and older family members may lose time at work due to grief. Pursuing a legal claim can address some of this financial pressure. Getting fair compensation is important to ensure that you and your family have the financial resources to heal.
