What should i do if i'm injured in a Boating Accident?
Boating is an enjoyable part of surviving in the Florida heat, but this relaxing past time can also result in serious injury and death. In fact, the U.S. Coast Guard reports around 5,000 annual boating accidents in the country, in which 3,451 people come out with serious injuries and 700 people die. In comparison to other kinds of accidents resulting in personal injury, boating accidents are very likely to cause serious bodily harm to those involved.
Common injuries due to boating accidents include broken and fractured bones, severe cuts, paralysis, spinal cord injury, brain injury and death. These injuries are commonplace in all different boating accidents.
Most accidents involve operating while intoxicated, whether it is a jet ski or water skiing, multiple boat collisions, tubing accidents and people in the water getting hit by boats. Depending on the situation, liability falls on different people involved, and are due to the circumstances, determining who is at fault may be a murky subject.
