From the St. Johns River to the Intracoastal Waterway to the Atlantic Ocean, the bodies of water in and around Florida are the sites of many recreational activities. In Florida, one of the most popular activities is boating, but it can also be a dangerous one. Whether you are speed boating, fishing, or just relaxing in the sun on a boat, your safety is dependent on other people following the proper safety precautions. When they fail to take safety measures, it can lead to serious injury, unpaid medical bills, lost wages, permanent disabilities or wrongful death. Boat operators are responsible for the injuries and damage to property cause by their negligence. Many of the boating accidents consist of, boat collision, permissive boat operators, sinking boat or watercraft, and falling overboard, and the most common cause of death is drowning. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Florida has the most boating accidents and deaths in the nation. If you or a loved one has been in a boating accident, our lawyers can help you.

While other Florida personal injury cases on land have a four year statute of limitations, boating accident victims have less time to bring their case. Generally, the statute of limitations depends on the location of the accident and whether state laws or federal laws will apply. Because of this gray area, it is important to contact Nooney & Roberts as soon after your accident has happened to guarantee that any relevant time limits to bring your case do not run out.
