Boating Accidents

Boating Accident Lawyers in St. Augustine

Florida is #1 in Waterway and Boating Accidents

Boating accidents on the ocean, St. Johns River, or inland waterways are not an uncommon occurrence. In fact, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reported over 730 boating accidents and 55 boating-related deaths in Florida in 2015. Statistics like these are the reason Florida leads the nation in boating accidents. With over 8,000 miles of coastline, it is bound to stay this way for a while.
