How Boat Accidents Occur

Due to the recreational nature of boating, many people fail to follow boating laws and safety regulations designed to protect people on the water. Unfortunately, this can have catastrophic consequences.

  • Operator error
  • Inexperienced boat operators
  • Operating a watercraft while under the influence of alcohol
  • Failing to keep a proper lookout
  • Carelessness and inattention
  • Excessive speed
  • Violating navigational rules
  • Failing to see and/or avoid hazards in the water
  • Underage boat operators
  • Defective boat parts or equipment failure
  • Insufficient safety devices

 

In addition to recreational boat accidents, commercial ship accidents can and do occur for a variety of reasons. Collisions with other watercraft, improper training or supervision, alcohol or drug use, and other factors can all lead to serious commercial boating accidents.
