Boating and Florida go hand in hand. Unfortunately, just living in the Sunshine State puts you at a greater risk of being injured on or by a boat.

Did you know that Florida is the state with the most boating accidents? Consistently, The Sunshine State has topped this list. Why? Well, boating regulations are very relaxed compared to other states.

In Florida, there is no age requirement for boating.  Operators above 30-years-of-age also don’t need to undergo boating safety courses or need boating licenses. While these loose regulations are ideal for tourist and recreational reasons, it is the opposite for safety.

If you are a victim in a boating accident, it is essential to consult with a Florida boating accident attorney and file a timely claim against the liable parties. When you hire us, we will not settle for anything less than what you deserve. That’s the Loutos Law Firm promise.
