Watercraft Accidents

Because of the abundance of waterways within the State of Florida, each year many injuries occur as a result of the negligence of the operators of boats, jet skies, and other types of watercraft. Safety on the water is an obvious and important factor given the nature and complexity of operating a watercraft. Like automobiles, watercraft owners may have valuable insurance that provides coverage in the event that others are injured by their negligent operation.

Also, these types of incidents may involve collisions with obstructions on waterways such as improper docks, piers, and pilings. Typically, homeowners or marine insurance may provide coverage for these sorts of incidents but it is important to contact an attorney that handles these types of cases for an expert opinion. Clearly, enjoying the waterways of our State is an important family past time and using the utmost care and safety must be a priority.
