Consequences of Boating Accidents

Due to the floating nature of a boat, many people who operate them may underestimate their weight and mass. This can lead to boaters who negligently control their watercraft, either pushing it too quickly through the water or steering it too closely to others. Upon impact, even a small boat can cause catastrophic injuries.

Victims injured in a boating accident may suffer:

If you have been hurt in a boating accident, be sure to seek any necessary medical attention. You will want to keep medical records for your case, as well as allow your injury attorney to evaluate the costs of your injuries. Few things can be more frustrating than settling for compensation that ultimately does not provide for your needs, such as initial medical costs, follow-up procedures, boat repair, and more.

Safety Tips to Prevent Boating Accidents

Two of the main reasons boating accidents occur are negligence and unpreparedness. Most people cannot envision a boat accident happening to them – they are quite rare in comparison to car accidents – and do not take proper precautionary steps before getting on the water.

To hopefully avoid a boat accident in the future, remember these safety tips:

  1. Wear life jackets at all times.
  2. Tune to an emergency radio station and leave it on.
  3. Never travel faster than approved speed limits or what is safe.
  4. Maintain your vessel regularly.
  5. Do not load cargo in excess of the boat’s weight rating.
  6. Check weather predictions for the day of your boating trip.
  7. Go over safety routines with everyone onboard.
