The Amber May Law

Mr. Leighton provides clients with extensive experience in the area of Resort Torts, including cruise ship, maritime, and violent crime/negligent premises security. Among his cases is the high-profile parasailing death in Pompano Beach, Florida, in which the mother of 15-year-old Amber May White filed a negligence lawsuit against the parasail operators and the resort where Amber May was killed.

Amber May died while parasailing from head trauma along with internal injuries, sustained when she crashed into a building when the parasail on which she was riding snapped. Amber May’s sister Crystal also suffered head injuries in this tragedy. Mr. Leighton and Amber May’s mother Shannon Kraus have spearheaded legislative efforts to bring some regulation to this rogue industry. After seven years his efforts in Tallahassee resulted in the first law in the country regulating the parasailing industry.
