Who Is Liable for Boating Accidents?

Boating accidents are relatively rare, but when they do happen, they are often the result of negligence. Because it is a recreational activity, many people do not take boating safety seriously. This can—and does—result in devastating accidents, injuries, and deaths.
When someone else is responsible for a boating accident, injured victims or the family members of those killed in the accident can seek financial compensation from the liable person or party. Determining who is liable for the accident is a critical element of a successful claim and, often, it involves uncovering which person or party acted negligently, recklessly, or wrongfully. In most cases, the first step in doing this is determining how the accident happened.

Some of the most common causes of boating accidents in Florida include:

When you trust your case to our Gainesville boating accident attorneys, we will immediately begin an investigation into how the incident occurred and, most importantly, who was liable. For example, if an intoxicated boater crashed into your vessel, we can prove the intoxicated individual was acting both negligently and unlawfully and is, therefore, liable for the incident. If you were injured due to defective or malfunctioning equipment, we may be able to bring a product liability case against the manufacturer on your behalf.

Damages in Boating Accident Cases

Sadly, many boating accidents result in catastrophic injuries. Because these incidents typically occur on the water, the risk of fatal drownings and near-drowning is extremely high. Victims often experience drowning-related brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and wrongful death. For those who survive, as well as the families of those who do not, the aftermath can be unimaginably difficult to bear.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., our Gainesville boating accident lawyers help victims and their families fight for fair compensation for the following damages:
