Most personal injury lawyers in Florida don’t really listen to what their clients want and need. They treat clients like they’re just part of a production line, trying to handle as many cases as possible to make more money.

 

Unfortunately, this often means clients aren’t getting the care they deserve. Cases might get settled too fast and for too little money; people who did something wrong might not face the consequences, and the clients might end up feeling even more helpless and frustrated than they were before they got legal “help.”

 

At DWK Law, we’ve done things differently for over 30 years. We put our clients first, not our profits. Yes, we’re a business, but we’re a business that exists to help our clients. We limit the number of clients we take on so that we can direct all of our resources and attention to help the clients we have. We get results, making sure our clients get money for things like missed work, big medical bills, pain and suffering, long-term rehab, and more.

We represent clients who have been involved in several kinds of boating-related incidents, from boat collisions to slip-and-falls on decks to wrongful death due to drowning.

 

These injuries occur on Orlando’s many lakes as well as nearby rivers, bays, and oceans. We can also assist clients who were injured in water sports accidents including water-skiing and jet-skiing.

 

In some cases, an individual’s injuries resulted from a defective product, such as a boat with a poorly designed steering mechanism that led to an accident. When examining a water or boat-related injury, it is critical to determine who was responsible for the accident and whether it involved the negligence or malice of another individual or group.

If you’re struggling with money because of medical bills, or not being able to work, the last thing you want is to worry about paying a lawyer.

 

But don’t stress. The team at DWK Law understands, and that’s why we offer free consultations to see how we may be able to assist you. Plus, we only get paid if we win your case. When we do, you’ll simply owe a fee that we’ve agreed to at the beginning of our working relationship. It’s simple – you don’t have to use your own money when you’re already dealing with tight finances.

We can’t tell you a definite amount of the worth of your case without knowing the specific facts of what happened, but we can tell you that we utilize every resource available to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for our clients.

 

Some important factors to consider are the amount of your medical bills, how your injuries might affect your health or ability to work in the future, and how much it will take to fix your boat or other property.

 

The best way to figure out a fair amount of compensation for your boat accident is to work with an experienced injury lawyer.

You shouldn’t have to pay for an injury that was caused by someone else. Work with DWK Law and see why we’re the trusted choice for injured people throughout Florida.

Operator inattention and/or inexperience

Operating a boat is much different than driving a car. If someone doesn’t have sufficient experience with boats, they can make the vessel unsafe for everyone on it, as well as people on other boats, or in the water.

Sometimes, boat drivers can get distracted and lose focus, just like car drivers. Boaters who talk on their phones, text, eat, or do other distracting things can make the ride unsafe for everyone.

Speeding

Speeding on the water can be just as dangerous as speeding on the road. When boats go too fast, the person driving might not be able to react quickly enough, and that can lead to collisions with other boats or stationary objects, causing serious injuries and even death.

Drinking or using drugs

Many people enjoy boating with their alcoholic beverage of choice in hand. Not only is this illegal in Florida, but it’s extremely dangerous. Driving a boat under the influence of alcohol or drugs puts the driver and everyone onboard at risk of serious injury. Of course, this risk is also present for people on nearby vessels.

Mechanical problems with the boat

Sometimes, the boat’s machinery can malfunction, which can cause serious accidents as well. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to regularly maintain your boat and its equipment.

We need to show that someone else’s actions caused your injury. The proof we need depends on how you got hurt. For example, if your injury was the result of an engine explosion, we may speak with experts to see if the engine manufacturer made a negligent error in the production process. But if another boater hits you, we can use evidence such as the point of impact, the accident report, and/or witness testimony to help prove what happened.

 

While we’re working on your case, it’s a good idea for you to keep things that can help us, like:

 

  • Pictures of where your boat got damaged and where the accident occurred
  • Photos of your injuries
  • Any footage from a camera in your boat (if there is one), or on your phone
  • The names and numbers of the police officers who came to the scene

 

We’re not just lawyers; we’re also detectives. We can use what people saw, experts who can recreate the accident, and doctors who treated you to understand what happened and how your injury occurred.

The skilled attorneys with DWK Law have helped dozens of injured people receive financial compensation, justice, and peace of mind. We have extensive experience and legal knowledge to navigate the complexities of a water injury lawsuit. We know the ins and outs of Florida water injury law to position your case in the best manner.

 

If you or your loved one were the victim of a water or boating injury, call DWK Law as soon as possible. We’ll examine the details of your case and discuss your circumstances, legal options, and how best to move forward in a time-sensitive manner.
