Who Is Liable for My Orlando Boating Accident?
If we represent you in your Orlando boating incident and injury case, we will take steps to identify all potentially liable parties and investigate to build a case against them. We generally will need to show that they had an obligation to do something and did not, such as failing to follow a rule or safety protocol that would have protected you.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the regulations boat owners and drivers must follow vary depending on the type of vessel. A violation of any of these regulations could support a lawsuit if they caused your injuries.
Common Boating Accidents and Injuries in Orlando
Many things go wrong out on the water. This is especially true when boaters are drinking, using drugs, or lack the experience necessary for the type of vessel they are driving. Some types of boating accidents that occur on our lakes, rivers, and other area waterways include:
- Boat collisions
- Getting hit by a boat while swimming
- Falling overboard because of an incident
- A motorboat hits a kayak, Jet Ski or another type of personal watercraft, or other smaller vessel
- Incidents involving rented pontoon boats or other rental vessels
Boat accident injuries can vary from scratches and bruises to catastrophic injuries and death.
Boaters usually are not wearing seat belts, as they would in other types of vehicle collisions. This means they often fall into the water, are thrown into other objects, and experience other serious mechanisms of injury. Propellers can also do serious harm to those in the water.
Some types of boat accident injuries include:
- Head and brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Serious lacerations
- Other limb injuries
- Internal injuries
A boating accident could occur almost any time you are on the water. This could include when visiting Lake Eola downtown, fishing at Turkey Lake Park, spending time with friends at Moss Park, or wildlife spotting on the St. Johns River.
If you were hurt while on one of the many waterways in Orange County or another nearby area, the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine is here to discuss your accident and injuries.
