Whether you’re out on the ocean, a lake, or a river, boating offers a fun way to enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately, a pleasant day of fishing, jet skiing, rafting, or other boating activities can quickly go wrong if you encounter hazards on the water. Boating accidents are especially likely in congested areas where you may encounter uncharted shallows, strong waves, wakes and currents, and other boats and watercraft with inexperienced or drunk pilots.
According to the US Coast Guard, improper vessel operation, including speeding and drunk driving, is the leading cause of boating accidents. If you have been injured as a result of the reckless, negligent, or drug- or alcohol-impaired actions of another boater—or as a result of defective boat equipment—you deserve compensation.
