Clearwater Florida Boating Accident Injury Lawyer

In the United States, Florida boasts of having a large number of diverse waterways and the highest number of registered boats. Boating is a favorite pastime of Florida residents and contributes significantly to tourism in Florida. Many people choose boating as a way to unwind, go fishing, retreat from busy streets and spend quality time with loved ones and friends.

People are often quick to underestimate the potential dangers of boating and an unskilled hand is unlikely to have the ability to avert danger. In some cases, certain safety precautions and rules are not followed. As a result of this, boating accident injuries are fairly common in Florida and the state ranks as having the highest number of boating accidents resulting in serious injuries in the country.
