Florida’s lakes, streams and waterways provide some of the best boating opportunities and experiences in the country. While boating in the Gulf of Mexico, or in a canal, lake or stream can be a joyous occasion, there is a dark side to operating watercraft. Florida leads the nation in the number of boating accidents and fatalities, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commision. Speeding, reckless operation, alcohol use and bad weather can all lead to serious injuries or an accidental drowning on the water.
If you’ve been injured as a result of another’s negligence on the water, or a loved one was hurt or killed, contact The Law Offices of Alicia A. Piro for your free consultation.
