The almost endless opportunities for both saltwater and freshwater boating draw millions of people to Florida waterways every year. Whether on coastal waters, bays, channels, rivers, or lakes, boating in Florida is at an all-time high. These boating activities involve everything from enormous yachts to cabin cruisers, sailboats, kayaks, canoes, houseboats, and jet skis. As a result of the growing popularity of boating and water sports, Florida ranks highest in all states for boating accidents. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, we’ve seen how costly in terms of money, pain, and suffering such an accident can be. Our professional team has resolved innumerable boating accident cases in Port St. Lucie. We make it our job to provide legal service that you can count on.
