Miami Aquatic Injury Attorneys

Nothing is more refreshing or enjoyable than taking a swim in the ocean or in a public pool. They are two of the best ways to relieve stress and cool off in those hot and humid Miami summer months. However, numerous dangers may arise when you swim in the ocean or a public pool. Risk for personal injury is present when in large bodies of water, no matter how many safety measures or precautions are taken. Anything from near-drowning experiences to injuries resulting from inebriated jet-ski operators will surely put a damper to your fun in the sun.

Any kind of injury resulting from activity involving large bodies of water is an aquatic injury. Anything from boating accidents, accidental drowning, or diving board accidents is considered an aquatic injury. Unsurprisingly, aquatic injuries occur at a high rate in Florida. Miami culture is amphibious and millions of families visit the beach on a weekly basis. Quite sadly, it is estimated that more than 300 children under the age of five drown nationwide every year and more than 2,000 kids are treated for aquatic injuries. This does not have to be the case. With stronger enforcement of safety regulations and better precautions, we can reduce the number of aquatic injuries in the city.

Our Miami aquatic injury attorneys can help you with common injuries associated with aquatic injuries including:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Drowning
  • Paralysis
  • Disfiguration
  • Fractured bones

Boat Accidents

Boat accidents are another serious way aquatic injuries occur. More than 700 people receive fatal injuries while operating or riding on boats. The United States Coast Guard approximates that 90% of the victims were not wearing safety apparel when critically injured and 70% of boat operators had not received proper boating safety instructions.

Pool Safety

Pool safety can prevent aquatic injuries. It is important to secure your pool properly if you have children on the premises. Preventative measures can save lives. There are plenty of childproof barriers and gates on the market sold at a low price. You should also never let anyone who does not know how to swim in your pool. Swimming is easy and classes are cheap (especially in Miami).
