It’s enviable location on the state’s Gulf coast means that Naples boasts some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches. That makes our area a top choice for boaters and other watercraft enthusiasts. The proximity of the Everglades also adds a twist for those who enjoy airboat excursions. While Naples and other communities in Collier County emphasize safety on the water, accidents still happen. In fact, research by the U.S. Coast Guard confirms that more than 600 boating accidents occur in Florida every year.
When local residents or visitors suffer injuries in a boating or watercraft accident, they call on the skills of Naples Boating Accident Attorney Gregg Hollander. Having proven his capabilities in nearly two decades of providing outstanding representation to South Florida accident victims, Gregg Hollander has made his Hollander Law Firm a leading choice in Naples, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and other communities.
His experience in handling boating accident cases has taught Attorney Hollander that fatal accidents on the water have been on the rise in Florida over the past several years. In 2008, fatal boating accidents numbered 50 statewide. By 2010, that total had reached 65. Problems associated with boat operators are among the chief factors that contribute to boating-related deaths. According to the Coast Guard, the top-five contributing factors are:
- Operator inattention
- Improper lookout
- Operator inexperience
- Excessive speed
As an experienced Naples boating accident lawyer, Gregg Hollander recognizes those contributing factors as confirmation that boat operators often perform negligently or fail to exercise appropriate caution on the water.
