Fort Lauderdale Boat Accident Attorney
Recovering the Compensation You Deserve
With its prime location on the Florida Coast, Fort Lauderdale is a hot
spot for occupational and recreational boating activities. From cruise
ships and sports boats to fishing boats and sea doos, there are seemingly
endless types of watercrafts throughout the region's beaches. Although
many may enjoy these pastimes and watersports as a form of leisure and
care-free times, the fact remains that boat accidents are a constant and
dangerous threat to everyone on the water.
Reports published by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the agency responsible for enforcing boating safety laws, show that boating accidents are a serious concern in Fort Lauderdale and throughout the state. According to the FWC, there are hundreds of reported boating injuries each year, with growing trends in the number of preventable accidents and injuries. Largely caused by negligent boat operation and boating conduct, these accidents highlight the dangers of public boating and the need for all boaters to remain vigilant and responsible.
When boat operators fail to act responsibly, or when they commit illegal acts while boating, they can cause serious injuries and fatalities. Although there are a number of causes of boating accidents, the most common and concerning are improperly trained boaters and boating under the influence (BUI). When accidents are caused by boaters who fail to practice safe boating habits or by impaired operators, victims have the right to pursue a recovery of their physical, emotional, and/or financial damages by filing a personal injury claim.
