Living in South Florida means that you are likely to be close to the beach and may know someone with a boat or may even have a boat yourself. Boating is a fun activity that many Floridians love to take part in. However, like driving a car, boating comes with its own set of responsibilities and rules. The majority of people are safe on the water and abide by the rules, but some people just can’t seem to get it together. This is when boating accidents can occur. Unfortunately, these accidents can injure or even prove to be fatal for many people. If you or a loved one has been in a boating accident and are looking to pursue your case, reach out to our team at Lieberman Injury Law today. Your first consultation with us is completely free. That way you can weigh the pros and cons before deciding what you want to do. For more information on boating accidents, keep reading.
What Are My Rights After the Boating Accident?
After the boating accident happens you have some legal rights that you can pursue. For starters, you can receive compensation for everything you lost while the accident occurred, as long as the accident was not your fault. This includes any items you may have had onboard or any money that you may have lost in your wallet. You also have the right to make a claim against the person operating the boat that caused your injury. In this situation, you can make a claim against the driver of another boat that hit you, or the driver of the boat you are on, whoever was the one who caused your injury or the accident. Not all boat accidents involve hitting another boat, your boat could have hit an object or careless driving could have caused you to become injured. In some situations the accident does not happen because of a person, but because of the boat itself. If there was maintenance, manufacturer, or mechanical issue that caused the boat accident, you can file a claim against the company that is at fault.
Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help You With Your Boating Accident?
Yes! A boating accident attorney can help you out with your claim and your case. Dealing with the insurance claim can be confusing and become a hassle. But with an attorney on your side, you can easily pull together all of the evidence needed, establish proof of liability, and have someone on your side who can negotiate for you. While dealing with the insurance company isn’t always horrible, negotiating with them is. When you have an attorney on your side you know that someone with expertise in the law will be able to get you the proper compensation. We can also help you build a case. If you were badly injured in the boating accident, chances are that you do not want to be held responsible for paying for medical bills, taking time away from your usual routine, and any other disruptions the accident has caused. These are all things the person at fault should be assisting you with. After all, the boating accident was not something you caused. Our team at Lieberman Injury Law can review all of the documentation so you can put your focus on resting. We can also help out with interviewing any witnesses to ensure you have the strongest case possible. With the help of our team, you can get the justice you deserve.
