Jacksonville Boating Accident Lawyer

Boating is popular in Jacksonville, and thousands of people enjoy this activity every year. State law strictly regulates the operation of all types of watercraft on the lakes, rivers, and coast, and when an individual causes an accident through failure to abide by law, the victim often has grounds for a personal injury claim.

Whether you were injured on a jet ski, canoe, motorboat, speedboat, sailboat or a yacht, you can greatly increase your chances of receiving the settlement you deserve by retaining the services of Jason K.S. 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.

    "Jason Porter is superb."
    This is my personal experience with Jason porter. I was in need of an attorney. I didn't have a clue on where to go...who to call . or even if they would take the time to listen to my case. Jason porter was extra observative Very calm .. cool.. and collective. Very laid back . But don't let that fool ya. He's a very good attorney. He took our case and since the 1st visit he has lived up to everything he said he could do. Since every case is different. I truly feel as if he took our case personal This is so rare to see in attorneys nowdays Having a attorney that puts aside the so called business mentality to put people first is what I received even tho our case was small I'm sure there will be someone with a need for a attorney and I'm not some rich guy . I live paycheck to paycheck every week but I was treated like royalty respect . And I felt like my case was important I will never forget what he done with my case and the personal decision he made at the end that showed me beyond a doupt that Jason porter is a attorney on our side . Fighting for the clients not a paycheck . not afraid to stand up n fight and never break a sweat his cool demeanor breaks it all down so it's very understanding ... I can't tell you who to call for your attorney but if u read this. then u need to stick with Jason . I'm sure you'll love him and I'm sure you'll be happy Thanx again Jason porter you won my vote for attorney of the year 2015 and I hope I can help someone with there decision on choosing an attorney With Jason's law firm you won't go wrong

    "Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand."

    When I got into an accident, I didn't think I needed a lawyer. However, everything was so confusing and the insurance company was being very pushy. Once I decided I needed to contact a lawyer, I wasn't sure who to call. On the recommendation of a friend who had used him in the past and had a very good experience, I called Jason Porter. I was given an appointment the next day and it was during that appointment I knew I had contacted the right law firm. Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand. He assured me that I would not need to do anything but to get better and he was right! He and his amazing paralegal handled everything so I didn't have to deal with all of the confusion of the insurance company while trying to heal from the injuries I sustained in the accident. Ultimately my case was settled with the insurance company and I received a very fair settlement. I am hoping I never have to use a lawyer again, but if I do, I will definitely be contacting Mr. Porter again.
