Boating and fishing are almost state sports in Florida. Many people enjoy spending time on their sailboats or fishing boats on the weekend or vacation. And jet skis are reaching an all-time high level of popularity as well. A day on the lake can turn tragic, however, when someone is operating a boat while intoxicated or is otherwise careless in his operation of a boat. If you have been injured in a boating, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries.
At the law firm of Halberg & Fogg PLLC, we have handled boating accidents throughout the state of Florida from our office in West Palm Beach. We have recovered damages for orthopedic injuries, head injuries, spinal cord injuries. Our attorneys are skilled in developing theories of liability and recovery that often bring in more compensation than our clients originally anticipated. And we do not charge you anything until you recover money damages.
We can also assist with commercial boating. We can investigate these accidents to see if corners were being cut on safety measures, which then caused the accident. If you work on a commercial boat or in a commercial fishing enterprise, you are in a hazardous occupation that should not be made unreasonably hazardous by having accepted safety standards ignored.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating or jet ski accident, contact us to set up a free initial consultation. Let us show you how our experience and skill can help you recover the damages that you are entitled to.
