Fatalities Caused by Boating Accidents

Florida has more waterways than just about any state, and is filled with boating enthusiasts as a result. Unfortunately, boating accidents are a very real problem in Florida and the state in fact has among the highest boating accident rates in the country. If you have lost a loved one in a boating accident, the results can be devastating. In addition to the irreparable emotional upset, losing a loved one can have a dramatic negative impact on your family's finances and immediate future.

After losing a loved one in a boating accident in Miami or your southern Florida community, it is important to take steps to safeguard your family's future, especially if there are children involved. In some cases, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim in Miami or your southern Florida city in order to recover damages for your losses.

If you would like more information about laws and your options, contact the Flaxman Law Group legal team for a free consultation.

Why Pursue a Wrongful Death Claim After a Boating Accident in Miami or Your Florida Community?

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
Securing Finances After a Fatal Accident

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.
