Common Causes of Boating Accidents

Boating and personal watercraft accidents can and do occur in many ways. These accidents lead to devastating injuries, including drowning.

Some of the safety concerns associated with boating and personal watercraft deaths and injuries include counter-intuitive operating characteristics like off-throttle steering, the lack of appropriate operator training, and improper and inadequate warnings.

Accidents can happen in a variety of circumstances, such as:

  • Collisions with other boats
  • JetSki and WaveRunner accidents
  • Scuba diving and snorkeling
  • Parasailing accidents
  • Kitesurfing and windsurfing
  • Waterskiing and tubing accidents
  • Boating under the influence of alcoholic beverages

It is critical in a boating accident to determine which laws apply. Depending on where your boating accident occurred, Florida law, Federal Maritime law, or a combination of both could apply. This must be determined as quickly as possible because of the different procedures and statute of limitations that apply to each type of claim.
