How Boating Accidents Happen
The majority of boating accidents in Florida are a result of operator inattention, careless/reckless operation, operator inexperience, operating at an unsafe speed, defective equipment, operating under the influence, and failure to have a proper lookout. These types of accidents normally occur during recreational cruising or fishing in South Florida’s busy waterways.
If the operator of a boat acted in a thoughtless and/or careless manner that caused injury, death, or harm to another individual, they may be held liable in a negligence lawsuit.
