Snorkeling Accidents

Snorkeling Accidents

When a person goes snorkeling, nearly in every single circumstance, it's going to be governed by maritime law. There are certain duties and responsibilities that need to be followed. One of them, principally, is that there should be a flag. And the idea behind the flag, that's the diver's responsibility, so that they alert or provide notice to a nearby boater that they're going to be in the water. The person who's diving or snorkeling needs to stay within a certain number of feet, generally 300 feet of where the vessel is and that's considered the safe zone.

There are a number of Florida statutes on point. There are a number of diving standard of care principles that need to be applied in every single one of these cases. Snorkeling accidents, whether the buddy system has been violated, or whether another boat has caused an injury to any one of the divers, is something that our firms help people with for nearly 30 years.

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.
