Types of Boating Accidents

There are many ways you can be injured while driving or riding on a boat, including (but not limited to):

  • Ferry boat accidents
  • Colliding with other watercraft
  • Capsizing
  • Hitting a rock, sandbar, or other object
  • Flooding/swamping
  • Sinking

Generally, when people think of boats, they think of sailboats or motorized vehicles, like yachts, motor boats, etc. However, you may be able to consider your injuries the result of a “boating accident” if you were hurt while using a canoe, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, or inflatable watercraft.

Liability and Damages Stemming from Boat Accidents

If you are in a collision or other sort of boating accident, you may end up with serious injuries, such as:

  • Multiple fractures
  • Damage to the neck, back, or spinal cord
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputation
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Puncture wounds
  • Severe burns
  • Mutilation/disfigurement
  • Oxygen deprivation from near-drowning experiences

Injuries stemming from a boat accident can cause you to incur massive medical expenses and undergo a great deal of personal and physical suffering. You may also be forced out of work for a time and experience long-term or permanent disability.

You may be able to recover the costs associated with your injury if some act recklessness caused your accident. This may be possible if you were hurt because of the recklessness of another boater, a boating tour company, a captain who failed to take proper safety precautions, a boat manufacturer, or anyone else whose negligence may have contributed to your accident.
