South Florida Boat And Jet Ski Injuries

The majority of accidents involving boats or personal watercraft occur because someone did not observe safety rules that apply on water. Whether boating on the ocean or cruising inland waters, a negligent operator is liable for serious injuries to others.

At Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum, LLP in Miami, our lawyers have held boaters accountable for personal injuries and wrongful death caused by their negligence. We represent clients throughout South and Central Florida.

Inexperienced Drivers And Intoxicated Drivers

Florida hosts thousands of boaters from all over the world. Unfortunately, some operators have limited experience with watercraft and boating regulations. A significant number drive while impaired by drugs or alcohol.

Our lawyers aggressively pursue compensation against negligent operators, as well as lawsuits against rental companies or resorts that share in the blame. Our experienced team can capably handle all types of accidents:

  • Collisions involving speedboats, fishing boats, charter boats, sailboats
  • Personal watercraft (Jet Ski) crashes
  • Swimmers and divers struck by a boat or PWC

We promptly investigate the circumstances of the boating accident, focusing on evidence of alcohol-related negligence, underage operation, unsafe speed, right-of-way collisions, driving dangerously close to other boats or beaches, or boating at night without lights.

When victims are thrown overboard at impact, they often suffer serious injuries as they are struck again by another vessel or their own: brain injury, spinal cord injuries, propeller lacerations, broken limbs or amputation. Too often, the extent of injury causes drowning before the victim can be rescued.

We consult with boating safety experts and engineers to prove liability and damages, and we use economists, vocational specialists, and doctors to help determine the long-range financial needs of our clients for loss of income, medical care, and quality-of-life damages.
