In Florida we have a recreational boating statute which is the starting point for many boating accident cases. In addition, federal law, admiralty law, maritime law, which is largely judge-made law, and federal law applies to recreational boating accidents in some circumstances. It’s important to have a lawyer who knows the difference and what different remedies are available under both state and federal law for a boating accident.
