Boat Accidents

This Fort Lauderdale Boat Accident Attorney Helps those Injured on the Water

This Fort Lauderdale Boat Accident Lawyer represents clients who have been hurt on the water. Boats and boating are a huge part of the culture in South Florida. Water is everywhere, and so are boats. Nevertheless, boat accidents are frequent, and Mr. Quackenbush represents people who have been injured in boat accidents, crashes and wrecks of all sorts.

Boat accidents can be caused due to a variety of reasons. For one, boats can collide with each-other. Speeding is a frequent cause of this. Another potential cause of boat accidents is defective equipment on the boat (such as boat lights, etc.). For example, when boat lights don’t work, other boats may not be able to see the boat with the defective, broken lights – thus causing an accident.

When one boat operator causes an accident, injured people on one boat can bring a case against the driver of the other, at-fault driver.

People on the at-fault boat can also be injured. In that case, those injured people can bring a case against the driver of the boat they’re on.

Boat operators may also accidently drive into fixed objects – such as docks, piers, jetty’s, bridges, etc. When this happens, people injured on the boat can bring a case against the driver of the boat.

This Fort Lauderdale Boat Accident Lawyer Advises Victims of Boat Accidents

Another frequent cause of boat accidents is mechanical failure of the boat. If equipment on your boat malfunctions and causes an accident, you may have a boat products liability case against the manufacturer or designer of the boat.

One final frequent cause of boat accidents is alcohol and/or drug use. People on boats are generally relaxing and enjoying themselves. This can include the consumption of alcohol and/or drugs. However, intoxication can lead to poor driving and resulting boat crashes.

If the operator of a boat is intoxicated at the time of the accident, people injured in the boat wreck may have a case against the operator of the boat. In that case, the injured people may be able to pursue punitive damages claims against the operator of the boat. Punitive damages are designed to punish the wrongdoer, rather than compensate the victim (as compensatory damages are designed to do).
