Florida is a great place to own a boat. The boating options are seemingly limitless. Just like motorists, boaters must abide by certain rules and regulations, and exercise a degree of care in order to avoid causing an accident and catastrophic injuries on the water.
If another boater's carelessness caused an accident in which you or a loved one was injured, then you may have a case to pursue compensation above and beyond any insurance company offer. To find out if you have a claim, please call The Kelleher Firm in Naples and Fort Myers at 833-546-3675.
Claims Handled by The Kelleher Firm
If you think you may have a boating claim, give our attorneys a call. Depending on the location of the accident, there may be certain laws or rules that were broken by the boater who caused the accident.
Claims handled by our attorneys have to do with negligence. If someone else's negligence caused the boat crash, then you may have a claim to pursue compensation from the responsible party. Examples of behavior that may be considered negligence include:
- Boating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Colliding with another boat
- Reckless operation of the boat
- Overcrowded or overloaded boat
- Boating in inclement weather
- Lack of safety equipment
- Disobeying boating laws or regulations
After discussing the accident with you, our attorneys can determine if you have a claim. If you do, and if you move forward with a claim handled by The Kelleher Firm, then we will get to the bottom of how the negligence resulted in the crash. And we will work to demonstrate this case to insurers, judges, juries or whoever else is involved. We will not rest until the best possible outcome has been reached.
