There are approximately 13 million boats and personal watercrafts registered throughout the United States, which, when operated by negligent and reckless people result in many serious accidents and injuries annually. Every year, more than 8,000 people suffer physical injuries and over 800 people die as the result of watercraft and boat injuries.
There are many places in which a boating accident may occur, such as:
- On another person’s privately owned boat
- On a cruise ship
- On a personal watercraft or jet ski
- On a ferry
Typically, law states that the operator of a boat and the boat’s owner have a duty to exercise the highest degree of care in order to prevent injuries to others. Collisions with other boats, slip and fall accidents while onboard a boat, and sinking are the most common boat related accidents. In many situations boating and jet ski injuries are caused by reckless operation of the watercraft and watercraft malfunctions.
