Miami Boat Accident Lawyer
Biscayne Bay and other bodies of water surround the Miami and South Florida areas, making them a major draw for both swimmers and boating enthusiasts. However, with the density of people on the area’s waterways and bays, accidents are bound to occur. When this happens, it is important that you have an experienced Miami boat accident lawyer on your side.
Recovery for Recreational Boating Accident Injuries
Boating accidents are generally governed by the General Maritime Law of the United States, as well, and are based upon negligence causes of action.

Collisions and inexperienced operators are two of the major factors that contribute to watercraft accidents. In some cases, only the individual operator is liable for the damages. However, in cases where boats and Jet Skis are rented, the rental operator may also be held liable if certain conditions are met.
Rules of the Road Violations
Just like a street, there are markers on the water indicating which areas of the water are open to boating traffic. As such, a boater must abide by these boundaries in order to ensure the safety of other boaters and swimmers. However, when boaters do not follow the markers, or fail to give signals to indicate their direction, serious accidents can occur.
