3 Considerations Before And After A Boating Accident

Boating accidents are particularly common in Florida. In fact, there are more registered boat owners in Florida than in any other state. The Sunshine State is actually one of the main culprits behind the United States’ extraordinarily high number of watercraft collisions.

If you’re a new boat owner, or if you’ve been involved in a recent accident, here are three key considerations that all watercraft operators should keep in mind:

1. Boating Is Fun, But It Can Be Fatal

Many boating incidents result from inexperience or carelessness. Some common accidents include:

  • Boat collisions
  • Wave-runner and Jet Ski accidents
  • Snorkeling and SCUBA diving accidents
  • Kite surfing accidents
  • Wind surfing accidents
  • Boating under the influence of alcohol.

When operated without the proper supervision or know-how, boats and watersports can cause serious, debilitating injury. But an experienced Florida boating accident lawyer may be able to help.  Maus Law Firm can give you valuable advice on these issues.

2. There Is Hope For Boat Accident Victims

Maus Law Firm offers a wealth of experience in laws relating to boating in the Bahamas, South Florida and the Keys, and we have been perfecting our services for more than 30 years. Our attorneys are prepared to handle the complex jurisdictional- and marine-related issues that commonly arise after Florida boat accidents.

3. Protecting Your Rights Is Key

In any accident, it is important to know which laws apply, but cases that involve watercrafts may require a lawyer with particular experience. The location of your boating accident, for example, could determine whether Florida law, Federal Maritime law or both apply.

We offer a no-obligation consultation. Contact us today.
