Boat operators are responsible for the safety of their passengers, as well as surrounding swimmers, pedestrians, and passengers of boats nearby. Unfortunately, when safety measures give way to carelessness, accidents are bound to happen. It doesn’t matter if you are on a jet ski, a private yacht, a fishing boat, or a commercial cruise liner—a boating accident can happen at any time.
Boating accidents can take many forms. A poorly maintained deck may invite a slip-and-fall accident. Drug or alcohol intoxication, or letting an untrained driver take the wheel, can lead to a catastrophic collision. In worst-case scenarios, a mechanical malfunction or crash may result in a ship sinking or disappearing at sea. While some boating accident injuries are minor, a major accident can result in catastrophic injuries like head trauma or broken bones, spinal injuries, drowning and death.
