Tourist personal injury claims arise after airboat accident

Tourism is a major industry in Florida, and both local and aspiring business owners are constantly searching for new and exciting ways to attract visitors. Many thrill seekers have turned to some of these more daring activities for entertainment, while others have turned towards activities that seem a bit safer. Riding in airboats could be considered either a daring and exciting activity or a safe and relaxing activity depending on the individual. However, these are very powerful machines, and a small mistake can result in tourist personal injury no matter how they view the activity. Tourists on two airboats fitted to carry several passengers each were the unfortunate victims of one such accident.
