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 & Ligori 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 & Ligori 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 & Ligori Attorneys at Law today.

Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
