The Four Types of
Maritime Cases We Handle

ATTORNEY PROFILE

FRANK D. BUTLER is an attorney in the State of Florida for the past 22 years and is licensed in every Court in Florida, including all state and federal courts. Frank is an avid outdoor enthusiast and represents people injured in boating accidents and cruise ship injuries. You should be careful to hire an attorney who knows the issues specific to cruise ship cases and boating accidents.

I grew up in Florida and have been around the boating and marine industry my entire life. I have filed suit against all of the cruiselines that operate in Florida and have successfully handled boating cases throughout Florida. It’s what we do. Maritime law is very complex and you need to make sure that the attorney you choose has experience in handling these types of cases.

Many attorneys advertise for boating injury and cruise ship cases. See our “Very Important Information” under the Cruise Ship button and our “10 Things You Need To Know” under the Boating Accidents button. If the attorney you are considering cannot answer these questions, you should consider whether they actually handle these types of cases.

Why would an attorney just advertise for boating or cruise cases if they do not handle them? First, an attorney can refer your case to a maritime attorney and collect a referral fee. Second, an attorney can try to handle your boating or cruise ship claim even if they have never handled one at all. At our law firm we do not handle real estate law, bankruptcy, divorces, contracts, criminal law, probate, tax matters, medical malpractice, etc.

Your consultation with us is at absolutely no charge to you. There are no fees and no costs to you unless we win your case. See our Cruise Ship button and Boating Accidents button for very important information you should know regarding your claim. Maritime law imposes shorter statutes of limitation than most state courts.

BOAT-INSURANCE-DENIALS

BOATING INSURANCE DENIALS IN FLORIDA

Boating insurance denials happen for several reasons. But, at the heart of them all is the same thing: Your insurance company does not want to pay your claim. If your boating insurance company has denied your claim in Florida, you may be in luck. We fight boating insurance denials. If we win for you against your own insurer there is a good chance the insurer will have to pay some or all of your attorney’s fees. 

Boating insurance is not like auto insurance in Florida.  Auto insurance is very cookie-cutter; but boating insurance can have numerous options (like pollution coverage, towing, salvage, etc.,) which a car will not have. 

It is important to read your policy. Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. The language of that contract governs your rights and responsibilities. We see that many times when a claim is made, your insurance company contends that under certain written terms of the policy your claim just “isn’t covered”. Another favorite excuse by the insurer not to pay your claim is the idea that “you didn’t tell us “x, y, or z” about your vessel when you signed up for insurance. So the insurer takes your premium money, but when you finally have to make a claim, the insurer says you didn’t tell us about “X”. Frequent excuses in this category are: You didn’t tell us where the vessel was kept. You didn’t tell us you were using the vessel for [fill in the blank}. Or, you didn’t tell us that guy was going to be driving the boat. 

One thing you know for sure is that if you do not pursue this, the insurer is not going to do anything. When the insurer has told you they are denying the claim it is time to act. You do nothing—They will do nothing. 

We fight for boaters whose insurance companies have denied their boating claims. For 25 years we have handled insurance denials against boating insurance companies.
