When you get on a commercial vessel, you never expect to end up injured but, unfortunately, it happens.
If you or a loved one is injured on any commercial vessel, our experienced attorneys can help. These commercial vessels include:
Ferryboats and water taxis
Ferries and water taxis are a great way for locals and tourists alike to travel around Florida’s waterways. Unfortunately, many passengers sustain life-altering injuries on these boats every year. Passengers frequently get injured in collisions, slip-and-falls, or as a result of malfunctioning equipment.
Charter fishing boats
Charter fishing trips are a great way to explore nature and the waters of Florida, South Florida, Miami, and the Bahamas. But charter boat accidents, unfortunately, occur regularly and can be fatal or result in serious personal injury.
Charter boat owners, captains, and crew members all share the responsibility for your safety. Passengers can be seriously injured because of a poorly trained captain or crew. This includes potentially intoxicated or under-the-influence crew members. Passengers can also suffer injuries as a result of poorly maintained or secured equipment and tackle.
