Watercraft Accidents

Boat Accident Attorneys

It’s no secret that Florida has plenty of water recreation. Being surrounded by water, the water ways that line our coastal areas, and with countless lakes and rivers, our state is perfect for water recreation. And with all of this boating, jet skiing, water skiing, tubing and the likes, it’s no surprise that we unfortunately rank among the leading states for boating accidents, and personal water craft accidents.

In Jacksonville alone, with the vast St. Johns River and coastal waterways, we experience a number of very serious and fatal boating accidents each year. These accidents have been the result of unmarked and unlighted stationary barges, unsafe and inexperienced boaters, unsafe docks and boat ramps, and are often alcohol related.

Because most boat operators do not operate their boats and or watercrafts every day, and are often out on the water to have fun, it is easy to be an unsafe boat or personal water craft operator. This often leads to accidents that are commonly severe accidents.

If you have been involved in a boating accident or any water related accident that was the result of the negligence of another person, company, or even a city or state agency, contact the personal injury attorneys at McGRATH GIBSON. We will evaluate the circumstances of your accident and help you recover the compensation that you or your family members are entitled to.

Don’t let the irresponsibility of another keep you from many more years on the water. If you have been involved in a boating or watercraft accident, Call McGRATH GIBSON today at: (904) 358-3300.
