Understanding the Dangers of Boating Accidents in Florida
Spending time on a boat is a great way to relax and cool off during the hot summer months. However, boating boating can also be very dangerous. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, there are roughly 5,000 boating accidents each year in the United States. Many people have been killed or badly injured in boating accidents.
Boating accidents can occur as often on the water as car accidents can occur on well-traveled roads. The conditions under which boating accidents will frequently occur however, vary greatly. Accidents of this type commonly involve:
- Multiple boats
- Jet ski or water skiing mishaps
- Boats hitting people in the water
- Accidents caused by intoxicated boat operators
- Drowning accidents caused by lack of safety equipment such as life vests and life preservers
It is important to conduct a full investigation of the accident as early as possible to accurately determine who is at fault, so that the victims can file a claim for damages.
Injuries Caused by Boating Accidents in Florida
Regardless of the conditions, the injuries sustained during boat accidents are generally very severe. Common boating injuries include:
- Severe cuts and lacerations
- Spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury
- Broken and fractured bones
- Paralysis or permanent brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation in a partial drowning
If you have been catastrophically injured in a boating accident that was not your fault, you may be able to recover financial compensation for every aspect of the situation, from your medical expenses and lost income to your pain and suffering, by filing a personal injury claim against the party who is responsible.
