Perazzo Law Shares Best Insight into Watersports Accidents in Miami
FLORIDA: Watersports and Beachside Recreational Activities are a common sight along the shores of Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, North Miami Beach, with watersports enthusiasts taking full advantage of the many ways of enjoying Florida's numerous waterways. From yachts to speed boats, jet skis to kiteboards, surfers to swimmers, sunbathers to beachgoers both young and old, Miami leads the way in terms of personal injury accidents involving water vessels, surfers, swimmers, and beachgoers. Perazzo Law understands that though there are rules and regulations aimed at safeguarding against personal injuries from watersports, which can include fractures, lacerations, and even drowning from accidents involving speed boats, jet skis, surfboards, and even kiteboarders. The Miami City Council has established a set of rules and regulations for water vessel operators, surfers, and kiteboarders to safeguard against accidents involving swimmers and beachgoers. Jet skiers and kiteboarders are required to navigate at a determined distance from swimmers (300ft.) and from the shore (50ft.). On many occasions, inexperienced jet skiers may lose control of their jet ski and collide with a surf boarder. Water accidents such as this can range from minor cuts to severe wounds. Head injuries are very common in Jet ski accidents, whereas kiteboarders are more prone to suffer ankle and wrist injuries from falling over due to rip currents or wind gusts. Hypothermia, brain injury, loss of limbs, and drowning are among the most severe and very common injuries suffered by victims of water sports and boating accident in Miami. Perazzo Law urges water sports enthusiasts to apply extreme caution and avoid negligence such as alcohol use when taking part in recreational water sports activities off the Florida coast. Boating accidents and negligence are closely related thus safety measures and responsibility must be applied to avoid boating accidents. Perazzo Law handles boating accident claims for compensation by reviewing each boating accident case in detail, through investigation and inspection to determine fault and gain burden of proof to present to insurance providers for compensation for personal injuries, damage, losses, or wrongful death from a boating accident in Florida.

What to do following an accident that involves one of the water vessels above
In the event of an accident that involves a water vessel off the waters of the Florida coast, Perazzo Law recommends that accident victims keep calm as panicking in the water can ultimately lead to drowning. Safety is of the utmost importance when practicing watersports, thus, a lifejacket should always be worn. Many times, watersport accidents result in head injuries, thus the chances of losing consciousness are high. When accident victims of watersports lose consciousness, the chances of drowning are high. In the event of a water sport accident, rescue units must immediately be notified and any water vessel operators should try to rescue accident victims immediately because every second counts in water sports accidents, especially in the ocean or large bodies of flowing water.
