Can I Sue After a Boating Accident?


Boating is a way of life here in South Florida, but a day in the water can end in disaster if boaters don’t put safety first. Whether you’re on the highway or the high seas, staying cautious, alert, and sober should be non-negotiable. And remember, if you are hurt in a boating accident because of someone else’s recklessness, South Florida personal injury attorney Scott Smith says you have the same rights as someone in a motor vehicle, and you absolutely can file a claim for loss, injury, and damages.

If you have been the victim of a boating accident where you have suffered injury, you should obviously seek medical attention immediately after the accident. And then you should contact us to discuss your legal rights stemming from the boating accident as boating laws can be complex and complicated in nature.

You can reach personal injury attorney Scott Smith at 561-500-HELP or visit
