Boating accidents often result in serious injuries. In a split second, someone can sustain an injury to their arm, leg, or another part of their body if a boat capsizes or collides with another boat.

What are common causes of boating accidents?
Boating accidents happen for many different reasons. Sometimes, it’s the person operating your boat who’s to blame. Other times, your boating accident may involve another boater who crashed into your boat or struck you or a loved one in the water.
The reasons why boating accidents happen can cover a wide range. Many of the cases we handle at our law firm involve negligent or reckless behavior by someone operating a boat. This behavior can include:
- Intoxicated boat operator
- Distracted boat operator
- Inexperienced boat operator
