What is Involved in a Scuba Diving or Snorkeling Accident Claim?

At the Brais Law Firm, we routinely handle diving accident cases, either scuba or snorkeling. One very, very sad story. A group of people go down and grab lobsters in Minisiston here in Florida. The next thing the gentleman realized is he was tagging on a line. He didn't understand why the line was so heavy. His friend, un-denounced to him, had died.

The fact that the individual who realized his friend have died from after the fact, is violation of what's referred to as The Body System. When you're diving, you're supposed to be diving and having a means of communication with your dive buddy. His failure to do so prevented him from being able to intervene and potentially save the other person's life.The other types of cases that we get involved with involving scuba tanks and scuba diving; dive profiles weren't found, the dive site wasn't safe, verification of the tides and currents weren't made, people are swept away, engines are started with divers in the water. You get props strike cases in that particular instance. In other instances, you just get boaters who are completely unaware of what a dive flag even looks like. In most times, you have to minimally stay away 300 feet away from the vessel that is displaying a proper dive flag.

In other instances, we've helped people who have been literally run over by high-speed boats. If anyone has ever had anything like this happen to them or a loved one, please feel free to call the firm. We will be happy to try to help you.

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.
