As a popular tourist destination, Fort Myers and the surrounding communities are full of visitors who come to the area during the winter months and throughout the year. Both locals and tourists take to the waterways for fishing and recreation. Unfortunately, serious and deadly accidents take place, particularly when an inexperienced boat operator is in charge of a watercraft. Drunk or unsafe boat operation is the cause of many serious and deadly accidents.

Fort Myers Boat Accident Attorney

It can be difficult to consider legal issues after a loved one has been seriously injured in a boating accident. It is important to connect with a law firm that will be committed to you, your family and your case, and as early as possible after the accident. There are various types of evidence that must be preserved, and witness statements that should be taken before memories fade. The negligent party must be held accountable for what occurred. As the injuries sustained in the boating accident may require long term medical care, rehabilitation, and other treatments, the costs involved will be high.

Why hire a Fort Myers personal injury lawyer?

Many people who are victims in boating accidents cannot fully recover, as an injured person who has been thrown into the water and is unconscious often suffers brain damage from the lack of oxygen to while underwater. The primary cause of catastrophic injuries is collisions with another recreational watercraft, which led to 47 deaths and 711 injuries in a recent year. Some other types of boating accidents are commonly caused by:

  • Flooding
  • Swamping
  • Collision with a fixed object
  • Grounding
  • Skier mishaps

An open motorboat is the most frequent watercraft to be involved in a boating accident, with 1842 casualties in that year, as well as 211 cases of drowning, as well as 1556 injuries. These motorboats are the most commonly rented by tourists, and owned by locals in the Fort Myers area. The most widespread situation leading to serious injuries, by statistic, is operator inattention, followed by operator inexperience.
