Causes of Boat Accidents
According to the U.S. Coast Guard, the most common causes of boating accidents in 2008 were: careless or reckless operation, operator inattention, driving without a proper lookout, operator inexperience and passenger or skier behavior. Most boat accidents could have been easily avoided had a boat driver exercised proper caution or care while out on the water. If negligence or recklessness was the cause of your injuries, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim against the responsible party. We recommend that you talk to an attorney about your particular case to see what you can do to seek justice.
