Boater Negligence Can Lead to Tragedy
Alcohol is a major factor in boating accidents. When people are enjoying themselves on their boats, consuming alcohol with their friends and family on a hot day, they don’t realize the effect the alcohol can have on them when they operate the vessel. It is just the same as operating a motor vehicle on the streets. This contributes to many of the reported boating accidents that result in injuries or fatalities. Our Coral Springs boating injury lawyers will provide you with peace of mind when they handle your claim because they are experienced in defending the rights of boating accident victims when going up against the insurance companies.
