Understanding Miami Boating Accidents and Injuries

From Miami to Ft. Lauderdale and all the areas in between, there are tens of thousands of recreational boaters navigating the coastlines, bays and waterways every month.

With so much boating activity, the possibility of boating accidents and injuries is always present.

At Waks and Barnett, we represent recreational boaters who have been involved in an accident when that accident was caused due to the negligence of another person. Often, the negligence is due to the boat owner or operator.

Common boating accidents generally stem from:

  • Collisions
  • Drinking and driving
  • Carelessness
  • Poor operation
  • Mechanical failures

Most of these accidents can be avoided.  When they are not avoided, that’s when an experienced attorney can step in and offer advice on next steps, legal rights and how to tangle with hospital bills, insurance companies and other questions stemming from your accident.
