Yacht Accidents

Fighting For Victims of Miami Maritime Accidents

Florida boating requirements do not place stringent instruction or age restrictions on individuals operating vessels over a certain length. Therefore, people can operate yachts without specialized knowledge of these particular watercrafts, occasionally causing accidents due to limited ability to maneuver the vessels.

 

Injuries relative to yacht accidents may occur due to a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, the negligence of the operator. As such, the operator may become personally responsible for a passenger’s injuries or the injuries of an occupant of another vessel (if another watercraft is involved).

 

Statistically, yacht-related injuries often result from:

  • Collisions with other watercraft;
  • Collisions with a fixed object;
  • Navigation in poor weather;
  • Hitting a big wave or wake at an unsafe speed or angle;
  • Propeller contact;
  • Excessive speed operation;
  • Lack of knowledge of navigational rules;
  • Defective boat design;
  • Defective boat construction or repair; and
  • Exceeding maximum capacity.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Those injured on yachts due to the negligence of an operator may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
