A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a post about the recreational boat accident rate in the state of Florida. It appears that the numbers are stabilizing, and that’s a good thing. However, this does not mean that boat accidents are magically better, or that there is nothing to worry about. There are still plenty of people who are suffering serious injuries every day because of a boating accident.

Thankfully, there is a robust set of rules in the state of Florida that help people who are involved in boating accidents. When someone is injured in a recreational boating accident and one of the operators involved was negligent, then the victim needs to consider legal action. Similarly, if the captain of the boat failed to obey waterway laws or admiralty and maritime law, then the victim needs to consider his or her legal options.
