Scuba Diving Accidents

Scuba Diving Accidents

Another maritime recreational activity that we often get calls on is scuba diving. There are a great number of industry-wide standards that have to be followed. There has to be a dive protocol. There has to be an instructional period before all the divers enter the water. There should be a buddy system that's followed. There should be an emergency recall signal. All of which needs to be gone over before anyone enters the water.

Florida law may be looked to supplement what damages might otherwise be available under maritime law. Federal law might be looked to preempt the availability of certain state law and that all depends on where the incident occurs. In the event of an accident or injury involving a person who's diving, usually the types of claims we've been handling for decades in fact, and are often called upon to help.

Client Reviews

After my accident I contacted them right away. I was able to see them the same day and was kept in contact throughout the process. Everyone in the office was very accommodating, polite and professional. I highly recommend Brais Law and think very highly of their lead attorneys. They helped me WIN my case, and I am forever grateful. They went above and beyond to assist me. Thank you all so very much. H.S.
★★★★★
The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.

I was looking to refer a client injured on a cruise ship and had the pleasure of speaking to Keith. Keith was extremely helpful and he took time out of his day to provide some guidance. If you're looking for a Admiralty & Maritime /Personal Injury Lawyer in Florida, I would highly recommend Brais Law Firm! T.C.
