In a small craft or a luxury yacht, spending time on the water is one of the great pleasures of Florida life. However, if a boat, Jet Ski or some other type of vessel is poorly maintained or improperly handled, the consequences can be tragic. Our Palm Harbor firm, the Law Office of Paul B. Genet, P.A., pursues compensation for victims when individuals and businesses fail to meet maritime safety standards. In cases involving drownings, collisions and other types of harm, we conduct a thorough investigation of what occurred and always keep our clients apprised of the special rules that apply to boat accident claims. No matter how complex the circumstances are, we’ll develop a clear strategy to obtain compensation for medical costs, lost wages and other damages associated with the boat accident.
