How Do Boating Accident Claims Work?
Boat drivers have the same duties as other vehicle operators to behave in a safe and careful manner. Failure to pay attention and safely operate a watercraft can cause serious property damage—or injuries to boat passengers, swimmers, or even bystanders near the water. If a boat driver causes an accident or injury by breaching their duty of care, they may be held liable for any damages caused under Florida law.
Like many types of vehicle cases, boating accident claims start with investigating and assessing fault. Your responsibility is to prove that you were not a fault for the incident and deserve compensation for your injuries or losses. Working with an experienced boating accident attorney is the best way to evaluate your case, identify the person at-fault, and develop a strong claim to obtain compensation for your medical expenses, property damages, and more.
The most difficult part of any boating accident claim is determining how to get compensation for the damages or injuries you’ve suffered. The caring team at Goldman & Daszkal can guide you through every step of this challenging process, from reporting your boating accident to your insurance carrier to making a claim for damages. Our relentless attorneys will help you understand your claim and ensure you receive maximum compensation for your boating accident—either through settlement or in court if needed.
