Florida Personal Injury Lawyer – Boat Accidents
The beautiful beaches, shores, and waters of Florida make it a favorite spot for those who enjoy boating and other recreational activities related to our gorgeous coastline. Unfortunately, however, that also means that Florida has one of the highest rates of boating and boat-related accidents in the nation. Tragically, those accidents translate into numerous accidents and even fatalities every year. If you have suffered such an injury, accident attorney Mark J. Leeds can review your case to determine whether or not you may be eligible for compensation according to Florida law. With more than 30 years of experience in representing personal injury clients, Mark has the knowledge and experience, along with the personal integrity, that you can trust to help guide you through a personal injury claim.
Passionate, Experienced Representation You Can Trust to Handle Your Florida Boat Accident Injury Case
Florida law requires that any boat operator, as well as the owner of the boat itself, exercise the utmost caution and safety in order to avoid injury to any passengers, individuals in the water, or other boaters. Yet, according to U.S. Coast Guard estimates, nearly 80 percent of all boating accidents that result in fatalities involve boat operators who have never taken boating safety courses. If your injuries resulted from a boat being operated in a careless or negligent manner, or from a boat that was not maintained according to required safety standards, you may deserve remuneration. Accident attorney Mark J. Leeds will thoroughly investigate your case to determine all of the parties who may be responsible for your injuries, and then aggressively represent you in your efforts to try to obtain the benefits for which you may be eligible.
Preventable Causes of Florida Boat Accidents
Most boating accidents could have been prevented. If you have been injured in an accident that was due to the fault of another, boating accident lawyer Mark J. Leeds can provide you with the legal counsel you will require to pursue a personal injury claim against those who may need to be held accountable for their actions or lack thereof. Some of the leading causes of boating accidents are:
- Operator distraction
- Negligence or recklessness on the part of the operator
- Dangerous speeds
- Alcohol use (BUI/BWI)
- Operator inexperience
- Equipment failure
All of the above can cause boating accidents in which vessels collide with other boats, hit fixed objects, or capsize. They can also result in a passenger being thrown overboard or falling from the boat. As your boating attorney, Mark will investigate every aspect of your case to determine just what went wrong and the extent to which those who may have been responsible might have erred. This is why contacting an accident attorney as soon as possible following your boating accident is so essential, so that the boat is still in the condition it was when the accident occurred, witnesses are able to be contacted while the incident is fresh in their minds, and your injuries can receive the fast and prompt attention which they may require.
Quality and Experienced Legal Help from a Florida Personal Injury Attorney
Because specific laws apply to boat accidents in Florida, it is important to have quality, experienced representation that knows and understands boating law and the regulations that accompany it. If you have suffered serious injuries in a boating accident, you deserve the kind of legal help that can help to guide you to the resolution of your case that justice may warrant.
