Boat, Wave Runner, Jet Ski Accident Attorney

Tampa Boat Accident Attorney

Boating is a popular form of recreation in Florida. However, when boating is combined with carelessness, defective equipment, drugs or alcohol, accidents do occur.

We represent persons injured in many types of boating accident cases, including, but not limited to:

  • Boat Accidents
  • Waverunner Accidents
  • Jet Ski Accidents
  • Water Skiing Accidents
  • Wakeboarding Accidents
  • Wakeskating Accidents
  • Wakesurfing Accidents

Who is responsible for a boating accident?

The owner and/or the driver of the boat or jet ski may be held liable for any actions that cause personal injury. Here are a few common types of boating accident cases:

  • Boat collisions: When a boat collides with another boat or with a dock or other object, people may be injured. Just as we do with a car or truck accident, our boating accident law firm will investigate and determine who should be held responsible for your injuries.
  • Propeller injuries: When a boat runs over a water skier, a swimmer, or someone who has fallen overboard, there is a chance of propeller injuries. The driver and the boat’s owner are responsible.
  • Boating under the influence: Any boating accident that involves alcohol or drugs, such as intoxicated operation of a boat, commercial vessel, or other ship has an added liability — BUI or boating under the influence. If you have been the victim of a drunk driving boating accident, contact an attorney. Over the years, prosecuting drunk drivers has become one of our areas or concentration.
