Skilled Boating Accidents Attorney Securing Compensation for Windermere & Orlando Personal Injury Clients
Florida is one of the best states in the nation for boating activities due to our abundance of coastline and other natural and manmade water features. Unsurprisingly, this means that residents of our state experience a high percentage of boating accident injuries every year. If you have suffered a personal injury while boating, Cressman Law Firm, P.A. can help you file and defend a personal injury claim in order to collect financial compensation to be used for covering medical expenses, offset lost wages, and account for pain and suffering.
State vs. Federal Admiralty Laws
Where you sustain your boating accident injury impacts the personal injury process immensely. If you are injured on a Florida lake or waterway, or on the coast, your case will have to satisfy the grounds for a Florida state personal injury case. If you are injured, however, in deeper waters in the ocean, federal laws may come into play. Knowing exactly where you were located in the water when you were hurt is extremely pertinent information that we will need to know. Incorrectly remembering your location could jeopardize your claim.
Getting Competent Help
The best way to ensure that you will collect compensation from your boating accident injuries is to quickly retain and work closely with an experienced Florida personal injury attorney. There are simply things to which the layperson is not privy that significantly impact the viability of your case, such as common insurance adjuster intimidation tactics, legal precedents, and nuances of the relevant laws. Attorney Mark Cressman has over 20 years of experience in this field and is highly qualified to represent you during this process.
