How Boating Accidents Occur
Unlike cars or trucks, you don’t need a special kind of license to operate a boat for recreational purposes. Because of this, many inexperienced operators may not be aware of the what can put other boaters at risk. Add drunk drivers to boating and chances of being in a crash go up. Boats can get up to high speeds and occasionally, accidents turn deadly because of this.
In 2020, the LDWF Enforcement Division reported 162 boating crash incidents to include 24 fatalities. Contributing factors to these crashes and fatalities were:
- Alcohol use
- Distracted operators
- Improper lookout
- High speed
We handle the following types of boating accident cases:
- Boat tenders
- Also, poor boat care
- Jet ski
- Lastly, inflatable boats
