Ocala Boating Accident Attorneys
Boating is one of our favorite past times in Florida, but unfortunately, many boaters do not know or follow safe boating rules, and, as a result, accidents occur. In fact, more boating accidents occur each year in Florida than in any other state in the U.S.

In these cases, getting help from an experienced boating accident attorney can provide some solace. At the Davila Law Group, we can help you determine your best course of action and, if you are eligible for compensation under Florida law, we will fight aggressively on your behalf.
Boating Accidents in Florida
The state of Florida does not require you to take boating or safety classes before operating a boat. As would then be expected, many Florida residents and visitors take boats out on the water without knowing much about operating them, about safe boating rules, or about what to do in case of emergency.
Each year, many boating accidents occur because people don’t know or follow boating safety procedures and rules. They underestimate how dangerous boating can be and are negligent in their operation of a watercraft. Some accidents occur because of high speeds, overloading of a boat, or lack of safety equipment on board. Others happen because operators are under the influence of alcohol or drugs and being reckless.
While most boating accidents occur due to boaters’ negligence, some happen through no fault of the driver. Bad weather or other uncontrollable elements, as well as defects in the boat itself, can lead to accidents.
