Under Florida law, the operator of a boat and its owner must exercise the highest degree of caution in order to prevent injuries to passengers in the boat, swimmers in the water or any surrounding vessels. The types of boating accidents that occur most frequently are collisions with other vessels or fixed objects, skier mishaps, falling overboard and capsizing. The legal rights applicable to your claim will vary depending upon certain factors such as your categorical relationship to the vessel (as a social guest, employee, bystander, etc.) as well as the literal events surrounding the incident that could have feasibly had an impact on the outcome.
