Boating Accidents

Boating Accidents

Florida has the highest number of boat accident fatalities of any state in the nation, ranging from 50-70 per year. In addition, there are approximately 400 individuals injured in boating accidents each year. These statistics from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are unfortunate, but very real. Floridians love their time on the waterways, but not everyone practices safe boating. If another person’s negligence on the water causes you harm, Frohlich, Gordon & Beason Law Firm can provide you compassionate support and strong representation in your personal injury lawsuit.

When accidents occur, on or off the water, determining who is at fault and responsible for compensation to the injured parties can be a complex matter. Rather than make assumptions, we encourage our friends and neighbors in Florida to schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys. It is always best to seek professional advice from personal injury lawyers are familiar with the local courts and Florida laws governing boating accidents and resulting injuries.

Water Sports Injuries

At Frohlich, Gordon & Beason Law Firm we have represented water sports and watercraft injury victims from a wide variety of circumstances. Some are injured as guests on someone else’s boat who doesn’t provide proper safety equipment or operate their boat in a safe manner. In other situations, the injured person may be swimming or boating, assuming safety, when another watercraft strikes them causing injury or death. It is always traumatic to end a day intended for leisure and relaxation with devastating personal losses. Compensation for the resulting losses is your right. We are here to help.

  • Swimmers struck by boats or water crafts
  • Individuals falling overboard
  • Boat and pontoon collisions
  • Water skiing accidents
