Fun in the sun goes hand in hand with life in the Sunshine State, and boating has become a favorite pastime for many living in Southwest Florida. In fact, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported more than 900,000 boats were registered in 2010 in the state of Florida. However, with the high number of registered boaters comes the risk of boating accidents.
Each year, injuries and deaths associated with boating accidents are documented in Florida. These accidents can be attributed to a series of factors, including improper operation techniques, faulty equipment, inexperienced boat operators, boating at high speeds, boating while intoxicated, and failing to keep an eye out for other boaters, objects, and people enjoying the waters off of Punta Gorda.
Complicating the matter is the complex nature of boating law. Injuries and death that occur on and near the water fall under specific laws, and it’s important to make sure you secure the right lawyer with the knowledge and experience needed to protect your rights.
