Florida is a peninsula known for its many lakes and rivers that lead to major bodies of water such as the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. A person’s negligent actions that cause an accident on the road may also be the cause of an accident on the water. You may find yourself injured in a boating accident while another is driving his boat recklessly or intoxicated. Maritime accidents cover a vast range of water related accidents and the law involving these injuries is complex.
When you or a loved one is in a major boating or cruise line accident, it may lead to serious physical and psychological harm or injuries. In many cases, recovery is a long process where medical bills and expenses mount and the injuries are permanent in nature.
Maritime law is so complex that the personal injury claims process itself where determining fault, and most importantly, resolving your personal injury claim for a full and fair settlement is difficult if done on your own. Personal injury victims may become a victim again if they do not seek out a personal injury consultation for a free legal evaluation of your claims.

Recovery is often a long process where medical expenses mount and the victim does not know their legal rights regarding their injuries. There are many different aspects that must be addressed when evaluating a Personal Injury Claim including but not limited to the extent of the physical injury to the claimant, the determination and apportionment of liability and available insurance coverage.
