Porter. Our firm fights for the rights of the injured to receive compensation, and we will do everything we can to assist you at this difficult time.

Florida Boating Laws

Florida laws regulate the use of watercraft, including boats and jet skis. With the vast amount of waterways in Florida, many people enjoy water sport activities. Accidents involving boats and jet skis can result in serious injuries or wrongful deaths. Injuries can include fractures, dislocations, amputations, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury, internal organ damage, coma, and drowning. Victims often require hospitalization and rehabilitation before returning to their prior lifestyle.

If your accident was caused by another person's negligence, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering, as well as for the financial costs associated with the injury. These can include your ambulance bill, emergency medical treatment, hospital bills and your expenses for any type of rehabilitative treatment you will require. You can also claim compensation for the money you will lose by missing work during your recovery.

Many people who have suffered boating injuries go under-compensated or receive a smaller settlement than they deserve, but a Jacksonville boating accident lawyer from our firm will represent your claim to help you pursue the maximum amount possible.

    "Compassionate Caring and Honest"
    I meet with Mr. Porter today, he was so helpful with my situation. He was kind and should true compassion for this situation. He gave me information I have not been able to get anywhere else and I have tried. He gave me hope that there is light at the end of this tunnel. I have a much better understanding of what I need to do and how to proceed with this situation. I am grateful that Mr. Porter gave me the time and attention that he did today. I would encourage anyone needing help in a criminal case, no matter how big or small go and see Mr. Porter, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. Mr. Porter thank you for your time today and all of the information you provided me with, it is appreciated beyond belief.

    "Forever Grateful"
    I have to go into detail here because there’s no way That I cannot give high praise for what Nicole Carlucci did for my daughter and I. I’ve learned the hardest way possible that men tend to be at a great disadvantage when dealing with a divorce and with custody problems. My ex-wife kidnapped our child and had every intention of destroying our bond and the great relationship we have. It’s the saddest thing in the world how some people take their own struggles and personal feelings out by using their children as pawns and manipulating to hurt others. Which is why I could not be happier and more grateful for the day I walked into Porter & Porter Law Firm. From day one, my story was heard, understood, and through a year and a half of what felt like full on war just so I could maintain my relationship with me daughter without us being ripped from each other’s lives, Nicole Carlucci supported me and used her expertise to get as close to the absolute best result possible. She never gave up or gave in and that helped me to stay strong, too, when there would be days or weeks my daughter and I would not see each other. If not for Nicole, I can only imagine how much more awful such a nightmare of a situation could have gotten. However, I am now divorced, continue to have an amazing relationship with my daughter, and have court orders to hold my ex responsible and accountable so that way certain things will hopefully never happen again, and if they do, I know who I am calling!! Nicole’s passion to help someone being taking advantage of and her drive to ensure justice be served when someone is manipulating the system is exactly what my daughter and I needed so we can live a happy life. Thank you Nicole and Firm!!

    "We picked Porter and glad we did!!!"
    Jason and his firm came highly recommended by my family member. My son's case would have eventually ended up with negative consequences if not for Jonathan Thatcher. Jonathan was supportive, knowledgeable and kept us informed at all stages of the case. Great firm and appreciate all your hard work in the success of my son's case. I would use this firm again and again.
