Boat Accidents Injuries Lawyer

Florida is beautiful, and we are known for relaxing beaches and sparkling water. Unfortunately, accidents that occur when boating on the inviting water can leave victims entangled in confusing state and federal laws. Just like a vehicle accident on land, those injured in a boating accident may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and living expenses. If you have been injured in a boating accident, contact our legal team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law to learn more about your rights under admiralty and maritime law.

In Florida, it is not required for boaters to have liability insurance. This can be detrimental to victims injured in a boating accident. If a driver of a boat is drunk or driving his vessel recklessly, causing an injury accident, it is not always as simple as getting their insurance information to cover injury costs. However, boat owners are still legally responsible for any damages or injuries they cause to others. Even if they do not have boat insurance, there are still options for victims of boating accidents to get paid for their injuries.

Filing a Boat Accident Injury Claim

If you were injured while on someone else’s boat or were hit by a boat while swimming or on a personal watercraft, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries. At Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law, we explore all the options to obtain restitution for our clients hurt in boating accidents. We will investigate whether the negligent boat owner has insurance to cover the accident, as both boat insurance and homeowner insurance may cover injury accidents. We may also consider filing a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party, going to trial if necessary, to fight for your right to compensation.

Boating accidents can cause serious, life-altering injuries. If you have lost a loved one in a boat accident or are suffering from injuries caused by boating negligence, contact our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law today.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
