Boating Accidents

The variety of boating opportunities available to full-time residents and visitors to northwest Florida run the gamut from pontoons and bass boats on the inland bays and estuaries to deep-water cruising in the Gulf. Many people also enjoy riding personal watercraft along the beaches from Pensacola to Tampa Bay.

Accidents happen frequently on the water, however, and the personal injury lawyers of Bryant & Higby, Chtd., have helped many Floridians and out-of-state visitors recover the compensation they need in boater injury litigation. Contact our office in Panama City if you need legal advice about your options for pursuing negligence claims related to boating accidents.
