What is a Boat Accident in Florida?

FL Stat § 327.02 (2015) defines “boating accident” as “a collision, accident, or casualty involving a vessel in or upon, or entering into or exiting from, the water, including capsizing, collision with another vessel or object, sinking, personal injury, death, the disappearance of a person from onboard under circumstances that indicate the possibility of death or injury, or property damage to any vessel or dock.” Many factors including inexperience, speeding, drinking, and other negligent behavior can lead to a boating accident. If you or a loved one were injured in a boating accident, the Florida boating accident attorneys at Kagan Law want to help you.

Common Boating Accident Injuries

A boating accident can result in several types of injuries including:

  • Burns
  • Broken limbs
  • Falls
  • Lacerations
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic or surgical amputation
  • Drowning.

These injuries can result in long-term hospitalization, permanent disability, or death. Recovery from a boat accident injury can involve long periods of hospitalization followed by months of recovery and rehabilitation. If your injury was the result of a boating accident caused by negligence, you should not have to bear the financial consequences of your injury alone. The negligent party should be held responsible and Kagan Law can help you do that.
