Tour boats are popular in and around Miami. From dolphin tours, tours to view the sunrise and sunset, and those designed for families with children, boat tours offer a unique way to see and experience the beauty surrounding our city. However, while designed for recreation and largely considered safe, it is possible to sustain an injury while riding on a tour boat. When this happens, depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury, you may be entitled to seek compensation for medical expenses, any wages lost during recovery, and your personal pain and suffering.

Common Tour Boat Injuries
Tour boat injuries may result from a collision. They may also result from rough waters, poor navigation, improperly maintained vessels, and other issues beyond the control of the victim. When you are injured through no fault of your own or as a direct result of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for all of your damages through swift and aggressive legal action.
Common tour boat injuries include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head and brain injuries
Drowning and death are also possible when involved in a tour boat accident.
Depending on the severity of your injury, it may be impossible to resume working in the foreseeable future. You may be facing significant medical expenses and forced to suffer untold amounts of physical and emotional pain. These things deserve compensation – and one of the best ways to make sure you are fully compensated is by taking legal action.
