According to the United States Coast Guard, every one of the top five
contributing factors in boating accidents are examples of personal negligence.
Failure to pay attention to the waterways; careless boating; improper
passenger behavior (including unsafe behavior by skiers); excessive speed,
and the use of drugs or alcohol all set the stage for severe injuries
or even death for operators, passengers, and innocent by-standers.
The Costs of a Boating Accident
Watercraft and boating accidents caused over $50 million in property
damage during 2007. Over 680 deaths were caused by accidents during the
same period, as well as over 3600 injuries. Falling overboard is indicated
as the primary cause in over 200 boating accident deaths, while colliding
with another vessel is the accident type most likely to cause injury.
When a boat or personal watercraft collides with another vessel or fixed
object, the likelihood of severe injury is very high. Traumatic amputation,
brain injuries, spine injuries, and loss of vision are common injuries
associated with boating accidents.
Although the medical services required for treating serious injuries
are quite expensive, health care costs account for only a fraction of
the total costs of a boating or watercraft accident. A recent Centers
for Disease Control study found that other costs, such as lost wages,
pain, and suffering make up the bulk of the costs associated with a boating
Boating and watercraft accident attorneys work with injured victims to
ensure that the mental, emotional, and physical costs of an accident are
paid through personal injury claims. The needs of those who depend on
the victim for emotional or financial support also have value, and a boating
and watercraft accident lawyer makes sure those needs are met. Watercraft
accident attorneys also represent the families and loved ones of victims
killed in boating accidents.
