Information on Boat Accidents in Brevard County

Injured Because of Another Person's Carelessness?

According to information from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission "Boating Accidents Statistical Report" for 2011, 59% of all reportable boat accidents in our state took place in ten counties. Brevard County ranked 8th on the list of the top sites of watercraft accidents, most of which involved a cabin motorboat, an open motorboat or a sailboat.

The FWC further reports that carelessness or inattention was the leading cause of boating accidents, followed by weather, speeding and operating on hazardous waters. Collision with a fixed object was the most common type of accident, while capsizing, collision with another vessel and falls overboard were also prevalent.

We will carefully investigate the circumstances of your accident, looking for evidence to support your claim for damages.
