Negligent Boaters Can Cause Significant Injury
According to the United States Coast Guard, over 700 people are killed in boating accidents each year, and thousands more suffer serious and life-changing injuries. Many of these boating accident victims suffer from severe lacerations, broken bones, neck and spinal injury, burns, internal injury or wrongful death.
The most common causes of boating accidents are:
- Reckless boating
- Operator inexperience
- Poor maintenance
- Alcohol use
- Excessive speed
- Hazardous waters
Whether the cause of the accident is a mechanical error or an error in someone’s judgment, people need to take the responsibility of owning and operating a boat very seriously. Their choices can affect themselves and other people in innumerable ways. While operating a boat, carelessness and negligence can create hazards such as collisions, explosions, fires, capsizing, falls overboard and sinking or flooding.
