The Sunshine State is surrounded by water on three sides and features numerous bodies of water, including nearly 8,000 lakes and 60 rivers. This, coupled with an average of nearly 240 days of sun each year, makes Florida a wonderful place to be on the water when the weather is warm. Unfortunately, more boats on the water also mean a greater risk for boating accidents. In 2019, Florida led the nation in recreational boating accidents with 679 reported, including 55 fatality accidents that resulted in a total of 62 deaths. If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a boating accident, a qualified boat accident attorney from The Ruth Law Team can help to ensure that medical and other expenses are covered.

The last thing you need when you’re recovering from injury or mourning the loss of a loved one is to get railroaded by insurance providers looking to delay or deny your claims until you simply give up in frustration. Our knowledgeable and caring team has the experience to fight on your behalf, giving you the best opportunity to negotiate a fair settlement. As your expert boat accident laywers, The Ruth Law Team will guide you through the process of recovering maximum compensation.
