West Palm Beach Boating Accident Lawyer

South Florida and West Palm Beach are popular for boaters. Boat owners and drivers have a duty to exercise caution while out on the water. If they fail to do so, and their negligence results in the injury or wrongful death of another, they may be held liable in a personal injury claim. If you have been injured in a boating accident, you need to speak with a West Palm Beach boating accident injury attorney from Wolf & Pravato as soon as possible.

Negligent Behavior by Boat Drivers Can Lead to Serious Injury or Wrongful Death

Boating accidents in West Palm Beach can be caused by numerous different negligent behaviors, including but not limited to:

  • Reckless behavior by a driver or passengers on a boat
  • Lack of driver experience
  • Failure to pay attention
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Failure to adjust behavior accordingly in inclement weather

If an injured party is able to prove negligence on the part of a boat driver, that driver may be liable for damages. Boating accidents can lead to serious or catastrophic injuries or wrongful death and, unfortunately, it is the victims that have the burden of proving negligence on the part of the other driver. An experienced West Palm Beach boating accident lawyer from Wolf & Pravato can help lift that burden by offering invaluable legal advice and working toward getting you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Do Not Suffer Financial Hardship Due to Your Boating Accident Injuries

In West Palm Beach boating injury lawsuits, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses incurred due to your boating accident injuries
  • Lost wages incurred due to your inability to work because of your injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Wrongful death

When a boat accident occurs and an injured person wishes to recover damages, there may be special legal issues to deal with. In some cases – generally involving commercial vessels – federal maritime law will apply and impose different rules for recovery than state tort law. The West Palm Beach boating accident attorneys from Wolf and Pravato can explain to you all the potential legal implications of these laws and help you to determine which laws will govern your case.
