Nothing can ruin a perfect summer day faster than a boating accident. Depending on the speed and watercraft involved, an accident may lead to life-altering injuries or loss of life.

Uncovering What Happened
In boating accident cases, much often hinges on determining who was at fault – or negligent, in legal terms. The answer isn’t always apparent.
Boat and Jet Ski accidents could be caused by:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Driving in the dark
- Failing to maintain proper vehicle maintenance
- Operating a boat without a license (inexperienced boaters)
- Failing to keep an eye on the path ahead
Perhaps the operator of the other watercraft was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Perhaps he or she was speeding or driving recklessly. An in-depth investigation may be necessary to uncover what happened. An investigation may also reveal other factors that contributed to the accident such as adverse weather conditions.
