Miami Boat Accident Lawyer

As the water laps peacefully against the hull in the middle of a gorgeous Miami day, there is no quicker way to ruin everything than a jet ski slamming into your fishing boat. What was once a well earned day at the beach can end in the emergency room, or worse. In Florida, this scenario is all too common with  736 boating accidents in 2013, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. As unregulated, fleetingly patrolled waterways, packed with reckless or inexperienced watercraft operators, Florida’s oceans and deltas are not always the safest places. Boats speeding along at 50 miles per hour are mixed in with people fishing at five miles per hour or a stand still.

Jet skis may be performing aerial maneuvers and cutting big arches along a beach that is shared by kayakers. Alcohol is involved in many boating accidents, safety procedures are neglected, and too few watercraft operators have the necessary experience to ensure safety for their passengers and those sharing the water with them. As with most auto accidents on land, there can usually be a negligent party that is found at fault in most boating accidents. This person may owe you or your loved ones compensation for injuries, future procedures, pain and suffering, lost wages, and property damage. To find out where your legal options stand, give our Miami boat accident lawyers a call for a free consultation.

Negligence Is a Common Cause of Boat, Jet Ski, and Other Watercraft Collisions in Miami

Just because it is called an accident does not mean that the collision was unavoidable. As with most accidents, boating collisions often have a party that took irresponsible, or even reckless, actions that caused serious harm to others. This breach in their obligation to treat others with care is unacceptable and unforgivable in our society, which is why they may be obligated to pay for your damages. Do not hesitate to hire an experienced lawyer to seek these damages to their fullest potential. Your injuries, property damage, and lost wages were no fault of your own, and you should not have to suffer the financial ruin that often comes with a severe, even debilitating, watercraft accident.

Miami Boat & Jet Ski Products Liability

Aside from user error and negligence, there may be another party at fault in a boating accident. Just like all members of society owe each other a duty to act with care, so too do companies. If a manufacturer produced a faulty product that resulted in your or another’s injury, they may be held liable for damages. You may have grounds to file a products liability claim, and seek compensation from the company that produced the shoddy boating equipment, engine, propeller, or hull that resulted in your injury.

Our Miami Boat & Jet Ski Accident Lawyers Are Prepared to Help You

If your day was spoiled by another’s carelessness or a manufacturer’s negligent products, you may be entitled to damages to help pay for your medical bills, property damage, lost wages from missed work, and pain and suffering. You have up to four years from the date of the collision to file a claim in Florida. Don’t wait to deal with this troubling issue later. Give one of our experienced Miami boat & jet ski accident lawyers a call at the Pendas Law Firm to discuss your legal options and start out on the path to financial recovery.
