Helping You Recover Compensation For Your Boating Accident Claim

Florida is surrounded by water. Between the locals and the tourists, local coasts, rivers, and lakes are always busy with Jet Skis, Sea-Doos, boats, and yachts. That in itself is a risk, but your chances of having a water-related accident escalates on holidays or vacations, when many people are on the water and drinking.

Every year, Floridians have more and more water craft and water recreation accidents.

What is Maritime Law?

If you were hurt while working on or using any kind of sailing vessel, your attorney must be well-versed in maritime law. If you work on a cruise ship, filing a claim for compensation for your injuries is a different process than what a passenger would use. Maritime law refers to the legal regulations concerning the employment and transportation of freight or human cargo near navigable waters.
