Dedicated Attorneys Demand More for Boating Accident Victims in Palm Beach County

boat with Palm Beach skylineTaking your boat out or going on a cruise is supposed to be a time for relaxation. Being out on the water, getting away from it all, boating is the perfect escape from a hectic life on land.

Unfortunately, sometimes, things don’t go as we expect them to. From issues at the dock to negligent boaters, a day out can quickly turn into a trip to the hospital if someone else isn’t following the rules. Similarly, a perfect vacation can turn into a nightmare at sea when an issue on a cruise ship leads to a medical emergency.

Accidents on the Water

In addition to the special rules that apply when boating in local waterways or out in the ocean, boat operators must also exercise care not to put others in harm’s way. Boating requires skill, knowledge, and a respect for the law and fellow boaters, and individuals who lack any one of these are at risk for causing dangerous accidents. Common issues that lead to boating accidents include things like:

  • Alcohol consumption
  • Ignoring wake warnings
  • Inadequate boat maintenance
  • Recklessness and horseplay
  • Speeding

If you have been injured in a boating accident in the South Florida area, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Schedule a consultation today to learn more.

Dock Injuries

Dock injuries can not only ruin a day on the water, but they can also lead to long-term (and in some cases permanent) consequences. Slips and falls and other accidents can cause broken bones, head and back injuries, and other serious injuries that require expensive medical treatment and force you to miss time from work. Many accident victims also experience severe pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other losses.

If you have been injured on a dock in Palm Beach County, we want to help you stand up for your legal rights. To find out if you have a claim for compensation, contact us today.

Cruise Ship Injuries

For most people, a cruise vacation is a time to unwind – a time to forget about your responsibilities and let others tend to your wants and needs. Tragically, for some people, cruises end up causing a lifetime of pain and suffering.

Cruise ship owners, cruise operators, and a variety of other companies all owe legal duties to protect the safety of their guests. However, from poor maintenance to inadequate security, these companies regularly fall short of meeting their obligations. These shortcomings frequently lead to accidents and incidents such as:

  • Falling overboard
  • Physical and sexual assaults (onboard and during shore excursions)
  • Pool, hot tub, and waterslide accidents
  • Port injuries (including at the Port of Palm Beach)
  • Recreational activity and event-related mishaps
  • Slips and falls on deck
  • Viruses and infections from unsanitary conditions

If you or a loved one was injured on a cruise ship, we encourage you to contact us immediately to learn more about your legal rights.
