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.

PUERTO VALLARTA PARASAIL TRIP ALMOST DEADLY

Near Deadly Parasailing Trip

We have quoted elsewhere on 888-BOAT-LAW.Com that one of the most frequent dangers of parasailing is the risk of the tether breaking. That is what happened to Katie Malone in Puerto Vallarta on June 8. Media reports state that she noticed the towing vessel going one direction and her parasail going another direction. She is very lucky. The news reports state that she remained airborne for 45 minutes after the tether broke. Not long ago we represented a client under the same condition and his parasail collapsed and dropped straight down. Another infamous case off Clearwater Beach on the West coast of Florida, known as “Beiswenger” (the name of the parasail company) resulted in the horrific death of a “flyer” who dropped down onto a construction zone after the parasail company cut the line to the parasail. In Beiswenger the jury found that the parasail company should not have gone out in windy conditions—wherein the parasail began to pull the towing vessel backwards and the crew cut the towing line.

Katie Malone is very lucky. Though the reports are that she sustained broken ribs, a fractured skull and a fractured pelvis, she was lucky not to suffer the worse fate of Eddie Myers in the Beiswenger case.

The fact that this incident with Katie Malone occurred in Puerto Vallarta is going to make it a challenge to recover if she decides to bring a claim against the parasail company. The news reports do not say whether the excursion was tied to a cruiseship cruise, or whether Ms. Malone travelled to Mexico independently of a cruise line. We have also noted elsewhere on 888-BOAT-LAW.Com that excursions are highly touted by cruise lines, but when injuries occur the cruise lines try to disavow any affiliation with the excursion company. In Ms. Malone’s case she landed two miles from where the parasail line broke, at an airport. Very lucky to be alive.

If you or your family member has been involved in a parasailing accident, recognize that of the thousands of attorneys who may be available to look at your case, there are a very select few who have ever handled a parasailing injury case.
