Boating Accident in Miami

With all the coast and lakes in Florida, millions of people take to the water every year. Unfortunately, this popularity also means that the state has its share of boating accidents. In fact. Florida usually has the most boating accidents in the entire country. In 2018, there were 57 people killed in boating accidents in the Sunshine State and almost 300 people injured.

Defendants in a Boating Accident Lawsuit

The boating accident that hurt you or a loved one may have been the fault of someone else. There are numerous individuals who may be to blame for the boat mishap, including:
  • Another boat driver who was operating their boat negligently
  • The boat manufacturer
  • A municipal or county authority that put a boat pier in a dangerous place or failed to maintain its existing piers
  • A jet ski operator who caused your crash by driving their craft dangerously

You May Be Paid for Your Injuries When Someone Else Is at Fault

Even when you follow all the safety rules on the water, you never quite know what other boaters are doing or not doing. Some boat operators may be taking shortcuts when it comes to maintaining their boats. Others may be illegally using drugs or enjoying a drink while they are behind the wheel of the boat. Our point is that your safety on the water also depends on others who may not be doing their part no matter what you do.

When someone else’s negligence is responsible for the boat accident, you and your family may be entitled to financial compensation. First, you will need to be able to show the injuries that you have suffered that would make you eligible for payment. Second, you need an attorney who can fight to protect your legal rights, whether it is in a negotiation with an insurance company or a lawsuit in court.

Common Boating Accident Injuries

Boating accident injuries can be serious. Typical injuries that boat accident victims may suffer include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns

The Insurance Company May Make You a Low Settlement Offer

As you can see, the insurance company may have a different opinion than you about the compensation that they believe you deserve. Invariably, they will think that you should get less and that is almost always reflected in the lowball settlement offers that they make. You need an attorney to fight for your interests. The insurance company thinks that they can make you any offer it chooses, and you will be grateful to receive it.

Your attorney will know what your claim is worth. They could tell you when you may be able to get more by rejecting the insurance company’s offer and demanding a better one. If the insurance company will not pay out you what you deserve, your attorney could file a lawsuit on your behalf.
