Common Causes of Boating Accidents
When they occur, boating accidents often result in serious, life-altering injuries and even death. Due to the high speeds at which many boaters travel, the relative lack of safety gear and restraints, and the heightened risk of drowning, boating accidents can have extremely severe, even catastrophic consequences. In many cases, these accidents are the result of dangerous or negligent behavior by individuals, boat manufacturers, and others.
Some of the most common causes for recreational boat accidents include:
- Alcohol-related operation impairment
- Distracted boating or inattention of the boat operator
- Failure to keep a proper lookout
- Excessive speeding or speeding in no-wake zones
- Failure to follow navigational rules
- Underage/inexperienced boat operators
- Defective equipment and/or boat parts
- Unsafe boating conditions, including poor weather
If you were involved in a boat accident that left you dealing with serious injuries or had a loved one killed in a boat accident caused by another person or entity’s negligence, you may be entitled to just financial compensation to assist with associated damages. These can include the cost of medical treatment and ongoing care, lost income or wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.
