$1,325,000 Settlement – Drunken Boater Kills Woman (Orlando)

John Elliott Leighton obtained a $1,325,000 recovery for the parents of a 20 year-old woman killed when a drunk boater crashed into a lakeside dock in Orlando.  The drunk boater had taken several young people for a ride in the middle of the night on his high powered speedboat on the lake behind his home when he piloted the vessel right into a fixed dock.  The victim was a superior athlete and student who was survived by her parents.

The perpetrator/operator of the vessel, who is now incarcerated for BUI (boating under the influence), is the subject of a recent public service video on safe boating.
