Recovering From Injuries On The Water

The ocean and lakes around Florida offer a beautiful location for people to enjoy their summer vacation. While the water offers a lot of fun on the surface and below, a boating accident or scuba accident can quickly cause someone to suffer serious injuries. When an inexperienced boater or diver causes you to suffer major injuries, you need someone who can help you cover the costs of the injury.

The lawyers at Pennekamp Law, P.A., have more than 30 years of experience in personal injury representation, including boating, scuba and cruise ship injuries. We know how to review the unique circumstances that led up to your injury and develop a custom-tailored strategy to protect your best interests.

How These Accidents Happen

Knowing the cause of the accident you experienced helps us determine who should be responsible for the costs of your injuries. We can help you look back at your accident to spot primary causes like:

  • Lack of proper training for the boat operator
  • Boating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Inexperience or inattentiveness from a scuba instructor or guide
  • Poorly maintained scuba or boating equipment
  • Improper use of equipment
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Rash actions from passengers or other divers

Our plan to help you includes identifying the root cause of the injury, detailing the total costs of your injuries and negotiating compensation that accurately reflects those costs. If negotiations cannot bring the resolution you deserve, you can count on our litigation skills to help you.
