Boating Accidents

Attorney who fights to help victims get compensation for their injuries

Between more than a thousand miles of coastline and multiple rivers and freshwater lakes, Florida is a boater's paradise. Boating is great fun, but it's an activity that isn't always done responsibly. Negligence can easily lead to an accident that leaves people hurt. The Law Offices of Scott M. Miller, PLLC represents victims of boating accidents caused by negligence and helps them seek the financial compensation they deserve.

There are many levels of responsibility with boats. The manufacturer of the boat is responsible for making sure there are no defects and that the boat is safe to operate. The owner of the boat is responsible for making sure it is properly maintained. The operator of a boat is responsible for operating it safely. When manufacturers, owners or operators do not meet their responsibilities and accidents occur, that is negligence.

Attorney Scott M. Miller handles a wide range of boating accident cases in Florida involving:

  • Operating a boat under the influence
  • Reckless operation
  • Speeding
  • Boat collisions
  • Jet ski accidents
  • Cruise ship injuries
  • Marina or dock accidents
  • Charter boat or ferry accidents
  • Private vessel accidents
  • Overcrowding or overloading
  • Irresponsible maintenance
  • Manufacturer defects

A boating accident can easily result in a serious injury. People on boats aren't protected by seat belts or air bags. Minor injuries may include bruises, sprains or strains. But boating accidents can also lead to broken bones, hypothermia and damage to internal organs. More serious examples include spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Recovering from such an accident can take weeks, months or even years. Hospitalization and surgery may be required. There may be many doctor's appointments, medication and physical therapy. Medical expenses can add up quickly, and you may be left unable to work for some time.
