We can help with accidents in recreational vessels

In Florida, we’re proud of how popular or beaches for both locals and tourists. There are so many things to do on our shores, but people must be sure to follow all rules and regulations when they’re operating yachts, jet skis, boats, etc. Unfortunately, they don’t always follow this advice. If you were injured in a recreational vessel as the result of someone else’s recklessness or negligence, call Gilbert & Smallman today.

We can help with accidents on cruise ships

Is there anything more relaxing than taking off on a cruise and letting the staff take care of your every need? If you end up injured because that staff is negligent or reckless, then yes – there are many more relaxing things!

We believe that if you’re injured as the direct or indirect result of the staff’s actions then you should receive compensation for your injuries. We will work passionately to ensure you are able to recover what you’re owed. Remember that there are different laws that pertain to what happens on a cruise ship compared to what happens on land. For example, these cases must  be litigated in Federal Court and the statute of limitations is different. You must work with an office like Gilbert & Smallman that’s familiar with these differences.

No matter what the specifics are, if you were injured while working on a boat, or you weren’t even on the boat when a boat injured you, we are here to help. Contact a Florida personal injury attorney today for your free case evaluation.
