Boat Accident Lawyers in Florida

When you are injured in a boating accident, it is a good idea to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Admiralty and maritime laws are extremely complex. Without an experienced lawyer on your side, you may be waiving your right to seek fair compensation.

If you have been injured in a boating accident, Hickey Law Firm is here to help. Use the contact form on this page or call us at 305-371-8000 to schedule a free case review and learn more.


Types of Boating Accidents We Can Help With

Founded by award-winning maritime attorney John Hickey, Hickey Law Firm has experience helping victims of all types of boating accidents. Some types of watercraft we have experience with include:

  • Motorboats
  • Pontoons
  • Party Boats
  • Cabin Boats
  • Yachts

We can also assist with injuries sustained while riding watercraft like Jet skis or while being towed on water skis or another surface device, in addition to injuries sustained while aboard a cruise ship.

John Hickey is board-certified in both Admiralty and Maritime Law and Civil Law, a distinction held by very few Florida attorneys. He and our lawyers are here to listen to your story, provide honest information about your options, and fight for the compensation you are due.

Common Boating Accident Injuries

Some of the most common injuries sustained in boat accidents are:

  • Brain injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Broken bones
  • Drowning

Some of these will result in life-long consequences, perhaps even requiring around-the-clock care or home modifications. When you are the victim of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Having a law firm on your side that is willing to fight tirelessly is one of the first steps towards seeking the full compensation you are due.
