Bradenton Boating Accident Attorneys
More boating accidents and boating deaths occur in Florida than in any other state, and the number of accidents per year is increasing. In fact, a 2017 report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission showed that both the number of boating vessels registered in Florida and the number of reportable accidents are increasing each year.

We’ve been helping Florida accident victims obtain justice for over twenty years, and can help you get compensated fairly for your injuries, pain and suffering.
Types of Boating Accidents
Florida doesn’t require boating or safety instruction before people are allowed to operate a boat. Consequently, there are lots of people who take boats out on the water without having much knowledge about the boat they are operating, boating safety, or what to do in a boating emergency.
Often, then, accidents occur because people aren’t aware of boating regulations and safety laws. They overestimate their ability to navigate safely and underestimate the dangers involved in boating. Some accidents happen because of boater negligence, as in moving at extremely high speeds, overloading a boat, or not having adequate safety equipment on board. Other accidents occur due to reckless boating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Still others occur because of uncontrollable factors, such as malfunctioning parts in the boat, adverse weather conditions, or a boater’s adverse reaction to medication or an allergy.
