Recreational Scuba Diving Accident Injuries

Florida waters are an incredible place to put on your fins and head to the floor of the ocean. Our state has a thriving scuba diving industry that caters to locals and tourists alike who need equipment, training or assistance on their diving adventures. Considering that diving involves going deep underwater and relying on breathing equipment to keep you alive, safety is of the utmost importance for anyone involved in the diving industry. Negligence in any form can jeopardize the life of divers, including the following situations:

  • Defective scuba equipment
  • Poorly maintained diving equipment
  • Improper training
  • Negligent supervision during diving expeditions
  • Improper signaling
  • Boat accidents

Scuba diving injuries can be very serious and may jeopardize the life of the victim. Hundreds of people are injured diving in Florida every year, many drowning or almost drowning due to negligence. Families of scuba diving wrongful death victims may be able to seek compensation for the loss of their loved one.
