Boating is an integral part of South Florida’s recreational lifestyle, and there are millions of boats on our nation’s waterways. Unfortunately, along with this fun and relaxing activity come mishaps, accidents, and death which number in the thousands per year. Motor boating accidents, water skiing incidents, jet ski accidents and accidental falls and drowning occur at an unnecessarily high rate.
The boating accident attorneys at Gamba, Lombana & Herrera are extremely familiar with how devastating a boating accident can be to victims and their families. Reckless operations of boats, drunk driving of vessels and operator negligence can lead to serious accidents.
Injuries often associated with boating accidents include:
Fractures and sprains
Open wounds and abrasions
Head injuries and concussions
Brain and spinal cord trauma or injury
Boating accidents are not limited to recreational activities as some are injured on cruise ships, naval vessels and through the negligence of maritime workers. If you or a member of your family is injured in a boating accident, contact one of our attorneys to discuss your case and how you can receive compensation for your injury or loss.
