Common Causes of Boat Accidents
Not all boating accidents are the fault of another person. Boat wrecks can be caused by a variety of factors, some due to operator error and some due to defects in equipment.
Some common causes of boat accidents:
- Operating a boat while under the influence
- Dangerous weather conditions (heavy rains, strong winds)
- Inexperienced boat operators
- Excessive speeding
- Mechanical defects
Regardless of the cause, boating accident victims can suffer from serious head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other catastrophic injuries due to falls. It is important that you seek medical attention immediately and talk to a personal injury attorney about your rights.
