What causes boating accidents?

Boating accidents often happen when someone is reckless while operating the boat. Whether you have a small fisherman's dinghy or a speedboat, there is always a risk in taking watercraft off the shoreline. Many boating accidents are the result of operator inexperience. Florida's laws do not require a license to operate watercraft, which means poorly trained individuals are often out on the water.

Dangers that can cause boating accidents include:

  • Rough waters
  • Defective watercraft
  • Passenger or skier behavior
  • Poorly trained operators
  • Mechanical failures
  • Bad weather
  • Driving into sand bars or shallows
  • Intoxicated boaters

Sometimes, inexperienced drivers or even seasoned boaters will speed or operate their watercraft. Distractions and recklessness can lead to devastating accidents on the lakes, rivers, and oceans around this area. It is illegal to drink and operate a boat, but some people do this anyway. Intoxicated boaters can be prosecuted for their offense, but you can also seek compensation in a lawsuit if you were personally injured.
