Are punitive damages available in Florida boating accident cases?

Video Transcription:

Yes, they are, but only under certain circumstances. In order to recover punitive damages in a maritime accident, you must show willful wanting or callous disregard-type behavior such as boating under the influence, which will be similar to driving under the influence. It’s a reckless indifference for the safety of others.
