What types of injuries arise from boating accidents?
Unfortunately, boating accidents cause more than bruised bows and sterns. In Florida, the most common types of injuries to result from boating accidents have included (in order of frequency): lacerations, contusions, broken bones, head injuries, back injuries, sprains/strains, internal injuries, etc. As our personal injury lawyers know, in recent years, Florida has even seen spinal injuries, instances of shock and amputations result from boating accidents. When these horrible injuries result from preventable, avoidable mistakes made by inexperienced or negligent boat operators, victims of these accidents can exercise their legal right to seek compensation for their damages.
