Types of North Miami Boat Accidents

Boating in North Miami can be exhilarating and scenic, but it’s important to stay safe and to treat boating seriously. Boating accidents in the area occur for many reasons:

  • Capsizing
  • Boating under the influence
  • Failure to wear a life preserver
  • Speeding
  • Negligence and recklessness
  • Distraction and inattention
  • Mechanical failure or poor maintenance of the craft
  • Inexperience
  • Boating during poor weather conditions
  • Failure to follow safety rules and posted signs
  • Boating in unsafe and prohibited areas

Boating accidents can take many forms in North Miami. They can involve collisions with other watercraft, capsizing, and other incidents. Like a car accident in North Miami, boating accidents can result in direct impact injuries. However, incidents on the water also have the added risk of drowning. When boaters are thrown from the boat or the vessel capsizes, drowning and even hypothermia can be a concern.

Injuries Resulting from Boating Accidents in North Miami

Boating collisions and accidents in North Miami can result in many kinds of injuries, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Fractures
  • Brain trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • Fatalities
  • Drowning and near-drowning incidents
  • Injuries to minors and children

These injuries can have a devastating and, in some cases, life-long impact. Even an injury such as a broken bone can mean tens of thousands of dollars in medical costs, convenience costs, and lost income.

It’s important to take every injury seriously.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
