Florida Boat Accident Lawyers
If you’ve been injured in a boating accident near Tamp Bay or any of the surrounding waterways, we’re here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Boat crashes are traumatic for everyone involved. What starts as a fun day on Tampa Bay ends in disaster and sometimes, despair. Boat accidents often cause severe injuries, a need for emergency medical assistance, boat damage, and lasting physical and emotional scars for the accident victims.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the number one cause of boating accidents is “the operator’s inattention or failure to maintain a proper lookout.” This inattention creates dangerous situations for other boaters and swimmers in the area, not to mention the passengers or crew on their own boats. Another leading cause of boat crashes is alcohol consumption, a factor in 19% of deaths.
In one year 766 boat accidents occurred in Florida alone, and 261 of them involved collisions due to boating operator’s lack of attention while operating a vessel. Unfortunately, between 60 and 70 Floridians die every year in boating accidents due to negligent boat owners, a number that’s been on the rise in recent years. Despite efforts to increase the use of life jackets in Tampa Bay and the surrounding area, about 81% of people who die in boating accidents aren’t wearing them before or during the accident.

Accidents involving boats (even jet skis) are more likely than other kinds of accidents to cause physical injuries because people’s bodies in and around a boat are exposed to propellers, engines, the hull, a sail mast, heavy sailing equipment and more. Boat crashes also cause severe property damage, pain and suffering, medical bills and financial loss. The injured may suffer for years from the trauma of the accident.
