Tips for a Successful Boat Accident Case
Right after you have been injured in your boat accident there are several things that you are going to want to do right away. The most important thing that we can tell anyone who comes to us for advice is to get medical attention immediately after you’ve been hurt. If you’ve not already done so, you need to prioritize your well-being and get yourself in front of a doctor to discuss any and every complaints that you have about your well-being. Injuries and damages related to this accident are very important to address with your doctor right away. If you do not do this, the insurance company is going to see that you waited to get medical treatment and they might claim that you lied about how badly you were hurt or even where you got your injuries to begin with.
Do You Need Legal Help?
Something that you also need to do urgently is seek the help of Orlando Boat accident lawyers. It’s important that you do not wait to seek help from a lawyer because these cases are time sensitive and waiting makes it harder for you to get justice. We want you to reach out immediately. We want you to keep this on your radar. If you don’t reach out right away, you might forget about the fact that you are entitled to justice and let it slip off of your list of to-do’s for years. If you wait longer than four years to call and set up a consultation to file a claim, then you might end up losing out on justice. The statute of limitations in Florida is four years. If you don’t get your case filed before then, you will not be able to receive justice at all.
We often see that when people don’t reach out to a lawyer right away, they are more prone to making case-ruining mistakes. If you waited to talk to our Orlando boat accident lawyers, you might not know that giving a recorded statement to the insurance company who represents the liable party is a huge mistake because they want to get you on recording saying something that would allow for them to reduce what they are going to give you for compensation. We are waiting for your call to set up your free consultation.
Protecting Your Rights
Going on a boat is supposed to be a safe and sometimes very relaxing warm weather activity. When people are careless or negligent, especially if they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, then the accidents that can happen can be catastrophic or, in the worst cases, fatal. Any time you are on a watercraft, you do run the risk of getting hurt by someone acting carelessly or negligently. It doesn’t matter if you are on a personal yacht, a kayak, a Jet Ski or otherwise, when there is negligent presence related to the accident and you’ve been hurt because of this person’s negligence, we urge you to reach out to our Orlando boat accident lawyers right away. You should never let the fact that you know the liable party personally prevent you from reaching out for help from us because you are entitled to justice regardless of who the operator of the watercraft was.
These accidents tend to be quite severe as you are not protected by airbags from any sort of collision and often there’s a lot of things on the boat that can provide a very hard landing for you if you’re thrown in the boat or watercraft. Because of the presence of water, if you don’t know how to swim and you haven’t been presented with proper safety features, then you could end up with drowning injuries if you were lucky enough to be rescued. We often see people with spinal cord damage and head injuries. Broken bones and needing surgery are also a common occurrence with both accidents. Our Orlando boat accident lawyers have seen a lot of these accidents and the expenses for medical treatment can be severe.
We have confidence in handling these types of cases and we hope to bring you justice when you reach out to set up your first free consultation with us. You deserve to know what your rights are and what you are entitled to. If we cannot get the insurance company to come up with a fair and reasonable settlement offer through negotiations with them, then we are going to take your case all the way to trial. We prepare every case as if it is going to end up in trial but it is less common for that to happen. We fight hard to push them to give you better results sooner.

Boat Accident Claim Investigation
A successful case relies a lot on the investigation process and the negotiation process with the insurance company. Both your Orlando boat accident lawyers as well as the liable party’s insurance company are going to be performing investigations to see what happened and what can be done about this accident. Our main objective, of course, is to show that the liable party was directly responsible for your harm and deserves to be held accountable for it.
When we look at the operator of the boat, we are going to be seeing what their experience and training was being the captain of this watercraft. It is important to us to find out what their history is with accidents in the past, as well as when they got their license. We are also very interested in looking into their employment records if this was a boat operator who was working with a company that owns the boat. Something that will also be looking into during an investigation is whether or not they were found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If this was someone’s personal boat you were on and they were well above the legal limit and clearly intoxicated that might be why you were in this avoidable accident.
We can also see what kind of evidence can be collected. If we can get photos and video of the boat or boats involved then we are going to be able to see a better picture of what happened in this moment. We also might be able to obtain surveillance videos as well as testimony from witnesses to see what they have to say. Of course, the longer you wait to reach out to us the less reliable witness testimony tends to be. Acting urgently is important for your case because not only will the witnesses forget key factors of the accident, you might also miss out on getting other evidence.

“In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
