Experienced Legal Team Handling Boating Accident Cases
After a serious boating accident, victims face numerous challenges. In addition to the personal challenges presented by physical and emotional recovery after an accident, victims have to deal with the very real financial and legal challenges. Lost wages and the high costs of medical bills can pile up fast, and although the long-term pain and suffering does not have a price tag, you should be compensated for the suffering you have experienced and will continue to do so.
At Munch and Munch, P.A., our Florida boat accident personal injury lawyers are uniquely qualified to handle claims involving boat and yacht accidents and vessel collisions. Our lead attorney, Jacob Munch, is a Florida board-certified maritime lawyer who made his living working at sea before becoming an attorney. Our entire firm benefits from Jacob’s extensive experience and knowledge.
Their unique knowledge, experience and legal skills give our maritime lawyers an exceptional advantage in maritime boat accident claims. They can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
We Handle All Types Of Boating Accident Claims
Boating and yachting accidents and collisions can be caused in many different ways. Florida has one of the highest – if not the highest – numbers of boating accidents each year compared with other states. Our Florida boat accident attorneys frequently handle personal injury and wrongful death claims, including accidents involving:
- Personal watercraft (including WaveRunners and Jet Skis)
- Cabin cruisers
- Center console runabouts
- Canoes, kayaks and paddleboards
- Inflatable and semi-rigid inflatable boats
- Pleasure boats
- Boats trailing passengers who are tubing, waterskiing and wakeboarding
If you have been injured due to the negligence of a boat operator or owner, including negligent operation at a high speed, collision with another watercraft, collision with a fixed object, overcrowding or overloading, defective boat design, ejection from the vessel, or failure to know or follow the U.S. Coast Guard’s “rules of the road,” you may be entitled to payment for your medical bills and lost past and future wages as well as compensation for your pain and suffering.
