Boating accidents are similar to car accidents in that they are often caused by negligent or reckless operation by the vehicle's operator. Alcohol-related crashes, speeding, and distracted driving are all common causes of boating accidents, causing the boats to crash into other recreational vessels, fixed objects, or becoming grounded on shore. Other common causes of boating accidents include operator inexperience, machinery failure, and improper lookout for other boaters, Jet Skiers, or objects in the water.
Common boating accident injuries
Boat accidents can be especially serious because of the exposed nature of most small boating vessels. Drowning is a leading cause of death in boating accidents, with over two-thirds of reported fatalities reported as drowning accidents. Common types of injuries caused by boating accidents include:
- Severe injuries (such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries)
- Broken bones and fractures
- Cuts and bruises
- Exposure to carbon monoxide
