Lakeland Boating Accident Lawyers

Boating is simply a part of Florida living. All along the state’s coasts, locals and tourists alike regularly take advantage of Florida’s excellent weather and scenic waters, making it a “boater’s paradise” of sorts. However, the more boats there are, the more likely it is to find yourself involved in a boating accident.

Remarkably, it is only recently that Florida has established boater training requirements, meaning that many boaters currently on the water were grandfathered in and have no formal training in boating safety. As a result, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, every year there are over 1,000 boating accidents. Out of all these boating accidents, nearly 40 percent result in injuries, making Florida the leader in boating accidents.

These boating accidents are caused by numerous factors, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Negligence or error by the driver
  • Lack of training in boating safety
  • Drunk boating
  • Speeding

When you are injured as a result of one of these boating accident factors, you can hold the other boater liable for any damages you sustained in the boating accident, including medical bills, property damage, loss of wages and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, boating accident claims are often some of the most complex types of personal injury cases, requiring a careful analysis of the facts of the accident and the applicable boating laws. This is because the specific circumstances of your boating accident will determine which compensation regime your case falls under. It is important to note that this determination will have a significant impact on the types of compensation to which you are legally entitled.

It is because of this inherent complexity of boating accidents that you need to have an experienced Polk County boating accident attorney on your side. Your boating accident attorney will be able to review the unique circumstances of your case and your injuries and help you get the compensation you deserve.

Since 1977, James Cunningham has been helping Lakeland boating accident victims receive justice and fair compensation. To ensure you get the compensation you deserve for your boating accident injuries, contact the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A., at 863-968-7551 for a free initial consultation.
