Common Boating Injuries
Collisions with other boats, or other types of watercraft, is the most common cause of serious injury and death in boating accidents. Other causes of injury are slip and falls, reckless driving, drunk driving, boat malfunctions and inexperienced watercraft operators. It is a general rule of law that the owner and operator of a boat have a duty to exercise the highest degree of care in order to prevent injuries and death to others.
