What are the Leading Causes of Boating Accidents?

There's two things that are the lead cause of boating accidents. It's operator inexperience and a complete lack of awareness of what's referred to as the navigational rules. A lack of knowledge with respect to the rules of the road results in really only one thing, not whether an accident is going to happen, except the fact that is going to happen, the only question is when?

We're very, very often called upon to help people who have been -- one boat literally runs over another boat, the two boats collide. It's a really, really good idea, just like you do behind a car, to have a designated driver, someone who will take responsibility to be alert and to be able to drive. A car might have two or 300 horsepower, boats will have 1,000 horsepower, but no one thinks about that in the potential ramifications.

We help people who've suffered from horrible boating accidents deal with those two causes.

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.
