Severe Personal Injury

If you or someone you know has been hurt in a boating accident, contact the Attorneys at Brotman Nusbaum Ibrahim and Adelman to seek compensation for mild to severe personal injury.

 

Living in areas surrounded by water, such as islands or even a state like Florida, there are many bodies of water to explore such as rivers, bays, lakes, and beaches This makes boating and fishing pretty regular pastimes. One never assumes they will suffer a severe personal injury just by participating in their hobbies, but the fact of the matter is, if you are one of the millions of people with registered boats in the state, you’re likely to be on it at least once in the near future.

 

According to the Fish and Wildlife Commission, in 2020 there were 863 boating accidents in Florida resulting in 79 deaths including 5 missing persons, and 534 injuries which was an increase of 16% from the 723 boating accidents reported in 2019.

 

Some of the contributing factors that led to these catastrophes include falling overboard and drowning, a number of victims not wearing life jackets, and being under the influence of drugs and alcohol. A lot of inexperienced operators that set out to the water for a leisurely time often fall under a lot of the above factors. A person who does not often operate a water vehicle at high speeds and is under the influence is more than likely going to be less attentive and act irresponsibly.

 

With all these factors in mind, boating accidents often will lead to severe injuries that can cause immeasurable emotional and financial damage, no matter who was at fault. Even though there are lots of different ways you can stay safe while you’re on the water, like avoiding the practice of drinking and boating, keeping flotation devices handy, and completing a boating safety course, the other boaters out on the water may not take those same precautions, putting you at risk.

 

A severe personal injury can come as a result of many kinds of accidents or catastrophic events such as medical malpractice, vehicle accidents, or even slip and falls. In fact, many think they need to suffer a severe personal injury to seek compensation, but any personal injury could be a case. Whatever the case may be, Law BNI is here to assist you every step of the way, fighting your right to the compensation that is rightfully yours. Schedule a free consultation by calling 561-417-5656.
