Types of Boat 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
- Hitting a rock, sandbar, or other object
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 “boat accident” if you were hurt while using a canoe, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, or inflatable watercraft.
