Pursuing Compensation After a Yacht Accident

Board Certified Miami Maritime Lawyers

Yachts bring in a substantial amount of business for the boating industry throughout Miami and all of Florida. The state's inland and coastal waterways provide an enjoyable yacht experience for individuals all year long. As waterways become more crowded each year, however, the number of yacht accidents increases.

If you or your loved one was involved in a yacht accident, our Miami maritime attorneys at Cassidy & Black, P.A. are in a unique position to effectively handle your case! We can hold the yacht owner responsible for noncompliance to the regulations and laws of a sea-going vessel. We have decades of experience pursuing just compensation for individuals who have suffered injuries from a yacht accident.

We Are Ready to Fight for You!

Operators and crew members of a yacht are required to follow rules and regulations that are set in place to ensure the safety of guests. If they act in a negligent manner, serious injuries can occur. You can trust our Board Certified attorneys to protect your best interests!

Common catastrophic injuries that can result from a yacht accident include:

  • Severe lacerations
  • Amputations
  • Crushed vertebrae

No matter what type of injury has been sustained or the cause of the accident on a cruise ship, jet ski or another watercraft, our firm can help you build a strong case aimed at just monetary compensation. Contact Cassidy & Black, P.A. at your earliest convenience to begin pursing the compensation you deserve.

General Maritime Law of the United States

If you are a yacht crew member and you satisfy "seaman status" requirements that are included in admiralty laws, you have special rights and remedies that are not given to many other workers. In many cases, you may have protections under the Jones Act, which is a federal statute. Our firm can help you file a claim for "unseaworthiness" against the yacht owner if this statute applies in your case.

No matter what your situation, certain elements will need to be proven to the judge or jury who is deciding your case. At Cassidy & Black, P.A., we can help you build a solid case to protect your rights. Our goal is to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.
