Boating Accidents

Know Your Rights

With the ever-changing laws in Florida and the fine print of insurance policies that define your rights, attempting to deal with the insurance company on your own can be dangerous for both you and your family.

If you have been injured in a boating accident in Florida, there are many laws that you may be unaware of that can directly affect your rights.  You may be entitled to recover payments for:

  • Your medical treatment
  • Permanent injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Cost of repair to your vehicle

Accidents that occur on the water can be traumatic - even fatal. When you or a loved one is involved in a boat accident or other accident on the water, it can be difficult to know where to turn for help. Who is responsible? Is there any relief from the medical bills or other financial challenges which resulted from the boat injury?

At Plotnick Law, P.A., we help boat accident victims and their families in the Tampa Bay area. We answer your questions, evaluate your case and pursue rightful compensation on your behalf. Contact us to speak to a personal injury lawyer with the experience to handle complicated boat accident litigation.
