Boating Accidents

Sarasota Boating Accident Attorneys

Boating accidents, much like car crashes, come in many varieties: boats crash into docks and other boats, for example. Boating accidents may involve other types of vessels or vehicles, such as personal watercraft and kayaks. Tour boats, tugboats, and ferries may be involved in major accidents that injure multiple people. There have been cases of passengers falling overboard, collisions with swimmers or skiers, and even boats tipping over because of load imbalances. Motorized boats traveling at high speeds are naturally prone to crashes, but slow-going vessels like canoes may also cause accidents leading to injuries and even deaths.

Whatever the circumstances, quality legal counsel may be just as critical to your recovery as medical attention is. An experienced personal injury lawyer can protect your rights, get an investigation started right away, and deal with the insurance company on your behalf. If you or your loved one was hurt while boating or hurt by a boat in or near Sarasota, Greg Linehan Law offers a free initial consultation.

  • Your losses and needs: We want to understand in detail what it will take to “make you whole” as fully as possible. We will then work to translate this information into a dollar amount to demand from negligent or responsible parties.
  • The accident: We may interview witnesses, view surveillance video evidence, bring in experts such as boat mechanics, and review police reports.

Well-armed with a detailed understanding of what happened and how it happened, we will prepare compelling arguments supporting your claim or lawsuit seeking damages from one or more negligent parties or responsible entities like insurance companies.
