Causes of Boating Accidents & Injuries
Just like driving a car on a roadway, a motorist must be attentive and careful when operating a boat on waterways. It can be thrilling and exciting to speed across a lake, river or ocean, but reckless behavior can cause severe personal injury to passengers and other persons in the vicinity in the event of an accident. Some incidents may even result in a drowning or other
wrongful death. Other causes of boating accidents include boating while intoxicated or under the influence (BWI/BUI), improper maintenance of the boat, a
defective product malfunction, and more.
When a boating accident involves a collision with another boat or any large object, a fire could break out and cause severe burn injuries. Sharp edges could cause cuts and lacerations, or even an
amputation. Crashes can also cause
broken bones, head trauma and
brain injury, or
spine injury which could result in
paralysis. It is also important to note that boating accidents do not always involve another boat or object. Unfortunately, boats can also collide with swimmers, surfers, paddle boarders, windsurfers, parasurfers, and other individuals in or on the water.
