Fatal boating accident is 2nd wreck on Tampa river in week

Just one day after the authorities had to rescue a person who fell into the Little Manatee River near Tampa, Florida after his boat overturned, another accident on the river has led to the need for the investigators and deputies. This time, two boats collided in an unclear and undefined fashion, leading to one person being killed and two others requiring hospitalization for their injuries.

Experienced legal representation in the Florida Panhandle

Out on the open sea, there are so many potential issues that can arise that lead to bodily harm, serious injuries, or even fatal circumstances. These incidents could happen aboard a cruise ship, or because a recreational boat captain was negligent, or because two vessels collide in an unfortunate accident. There could also be cases where employees are improperly treated during the course of their work, or innocent passengers are assaulted while taking a trip.

Boat accident during fishing event shows risks

The 2018 FLW Tour event on Lake Okeechobee hosted some great fishing by professionals, but it also played host to an accident between two of the boats involved in the event. Little is known about the details of the crash, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is still investigating. What we do know is that the two boats collided at an intersection, and that one of the angler's was thrown from his boat as a result of the crash. His co-angler also fell into the water.

The hidden dangers aboard cruise ships

Have you ever been on a cruise? The cruise ships are amazing. There are spas, gyms, comedy clubs, parades, water parks, movie theaters and 24-hour pizza and ice cream available. With over 3,000 passengers and 1,000 crew members, it’s truly a floating city. However, like any other city, there’s crime.
