People generally take their boats out to a lake to relax, go fishing with friends, or have a fun family weekend trips. By being away from the city, the stress of schedules and time frames are no longer there. Unfortunately, because of the negligence of others on the lake, you and your family may be seriously injured or even killed. Our boating accident attorneys in Lakeland will help you with any injuries you suffered.
Some minor boating accidents include two boats running into each other where there is only property damage to both boats. Boating injuries may become more serious especially if one of the boat drivers had been drinking and was operating the boats in an intoxicated manner. If a high speed boat hits someone in the water, the injured person could receive brain injuries, broken bones, severe lacerations and avulsions to their face, amputations or spinal cord injuries. Additionally, the boat propellers are very powerful and are spinning very quickly which can cause very serious damage to people who are relaxing in the lake. If boats hit each other, people can be thrown from the boat and may drown if they are not wearing proper flotation devices. If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in a Central Florida boat accident, contact our Florida boating accident attorneys to discuss what happened.
