Naples Boat Accident Attorneys
Many people are hurt in boating accidents in and around Naples each year. If you have been injured in a boat crash, Jet Ski accident or another type of watercraft collision, then you should speak with an experienced Naples boat accident lawyer today.
Naples, Florida, is popular for its beaches and its access to many nearby waterways including the Gulf of Mexico, Naples Bay, the Marco River and Florida Bay. However, these waters are heavily populated with both recreational and commercial boats. As a result, drivers and operators must use extreme caution when navigating Naples’ rivers, Gulfs and harbors.
Common Causes of Boating Injuries
Boat operators, Jet Ski drivers, passengers and water-skiers can all suffer serious injuries when there is a collision or when they are thrown from their watercraft. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are preventable and are caused by:
- Driver inattentiveness
- Driver inexperience
- Boating under the influence (BUI) of alcohol or other drugs
- Failure to have sufficient safety gear/flotation devices
- Failure to follow laws and regulations
Of course, there are many other reasons why you could have been injured out on the water. Regardless of the cause of your injury, we are here to listen to you and provide you with a free initial consultation about your case. The attorneys at Zelman & Hanlon, P.A., have more than 60 combined years of personal injury experience, so let us work on your behalf to try to get you the compensation you deserve.
Representing Tourists Injured in Boat Crashes
Our attorneys represent both Naples residents and tourists to the area. Tourist accidents in particular involve many legal obstacles. For example, hotels often try to wall themselves off from being liable for your injuries, boat vendors or boat companies do not always have insurance, or might try to limit your damages to the hull value of your vessel.
We have the experience navigating these complex legal situations, and we will do our best to see that you receive the money you deserve.
