Representation For Boat And Watercraft Injuries
Accidents on the water are as challenging and complex as auto accidents in many instances. There may not be a crash scene to examine. There may be a dispute about who was at fault or even who was operating the other boat. To make a case for damages, your lawyer will have to find other evidence to reconstruct what happened and prove the negligence of the other party.
The trial attorneys of Feldman Legal Group. have handled every manner of boating and watercraft accident. The common theme is serious injury or death, and we are committed to maximum compensation for our clients.
We take cases in the Tampa Bay area and statewide Florida, including watercraft accidents on the oceanfront or inland lakes and rivers. Contact us today for a free initial assessment.
St. Petersburg Boat Crash Lawyer
A fun day on the water can quickly turn tragic. Personal injury attorney Feldman Legal Group. and his legal team have obtained settlements and verdicts in a wide range of scenarios:
- Collisions between boats and personal watercraft (Jet Ski, Wave Runner, etc.)
- Running into docks, jetties, bridges and sandbars
- Swimmers run over by PWCs or boats
- Capsized boats, falls overboard, anchor mishaps
We conduct a thorough investigation to build a case for the negligence that led to your injury or a loved one’s wrongful death. We obtain law enforcement reports, interview witnesses and often bring in professional investigators to examine the vessels and other evidence.
Most boating accidents trace back to inexperienced operators who do not know the basic rules of etiquette on the water or how to control the craft. Often, there is the added negligence of alcohol or drugs, excess speed, boating too closely to others or operating after dark. The resulting injuries can be devastating: brain trauma from near-drowning, back injury, paralysis, broken bones and leg injuries.
If you were seriously injured as the passenger of a family member or friend who was reckless, you still have rights. You may need to put loyalties aside to cover your substantial losses — remember that you are suing under his or her insurance and not against his or her personal assets.
