Boating Accident Lawyers

According to the Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) statistics for 2015, there were 737 boating accidents involving recreational water craft in the state of Florida. These boating accidents accounted for 438 injuries, 55 deaths, and approximately $13.5 million dollars in property damage. Florida’s boating accident related death and injury rates were the highest in the country. Florida’s property damage alone, from recreational watercraft related accidents, accounted for over 27% of the nation’s total damage estimate. The national average shows that 76% of all boat or jet ski related deaths occurred when the vehicle was being operated by someone with no formal operator instruction.

The U.S. Coast Guard lists Florida as having the highest recreational watercraft registration rate in the country, with 949,030 vehicles registered. This does not include unregistered watercraft, such as kayaks, paddleboards, etc… Unfortunately, the state has also consistently ranked in the top two for boating accident related injuries and deaths for the last several years. Boat and watercraft operators have a legal obligation to abide by federal and state maritime laws when operating their craft and to obey the maritime rules of the road.
