Boat Accident Injuries and Obtaining Compensation
Spending a day out on a boat or taking a cruise can sound like an amazing way to spend warm summer days. Yet, boats can be dangerous, just like other vehicles. Boating accidents do happen and many of them involve personal watercraft. Accidents occasionally include a commercial watercraft, such as a cruise ship or ferry. When a boating accident does happen, taking the right steps and contacting a lawyer for help will enable victims to gain the compensation they need to cover any accident-related injuries and damages.
Common Causes of Boat Accidents
Boating accidents can be caused by various reasons. Some of the most common include the following.
- Inattention – Boaters must stay alert when they’re in control of the boat. Inattention could lead to crashes with objects in the water or other boats, failing to get to shore if the weather turns, and other issues that could cause an accident.
- Not Looking Out – It is crucial for someone to pay attention to the water around the boat and to watch out for any obstacles. A failure to do this could lead to a crash. Many times, cameras are used for increased visibility in front of the boat, but they do need to be monitored.
- Inexperience – Inexperienced boaters are more likely to make mistakes that can lead to injuries. Anyone who is inexperienced should take time to be trained in how to operate the watercraft and should follow all protocols to remain safe on the water.
- Speeding – Just like driving, boating at a high rate of speed increases the potential for an accident. There are speed limits in some areas of the water, such as close to beaches, to prevent swimmers and other boaters from being hit.
- Operating While Impaired – Just like driving under the influence, boating while intoxicated is dangerous. If those on the boat plan on drinking, have a designated boater who will remain in control of the boat.
- Failed Equipment – Equipment should be checked before the boat goes out to make sure everything is working properly. Still, the equipment can fail. Have backup plans in place and know what to do if anything fails while the boat is away from shore.
- Dangerous Waters – Always pay attention to the forecast for the day before going out on the water and follow local advice if there is the potential for dangerous conditions. It’s always better to wait a day or two before going out instead of risking dangerous weather or other conditions.
