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.
