What Are the Common Causes of Boat Injuries?

There are many different ways a boat accident can occur; however, most of them can be attributed to operator negligence. The most common causes of boat accidents include the following:
  • Inexperienced operator
  • Excessive speed
  • Inattentive or careless operation
  • Poor judgment
  • Inadequate maintenance and checkups
  • Inebriated or drugged operation
Depending on the circumstances, operator negligence can lead to the boat capsizing or sinking, a passenger being thrown overboard, fires or explosions, or some other tragic incident.
