Contact a Florida Boating Accident Attorney if you are injured on or by a boat or pleasure craft while in an ocean, river, bay, lake or any other type of navigable waterway or body of water. Perkins Law Offices is an experienced Boating Accident law firm, which is why we understand that most likely these cases will be governed by special laws called Maritime and Admiralty. Under maritime law, ship owners and operators have a duty of reasonable care to all passengers and seamen. In the event of an injury or accident in Florida, a passenger may be able to bring an injury claim against the ship owner or captain depending on the circumstances by contacting a Florida Boating Accident Attorney.
