Boating Accident Injury Claims
2013 Recreational Boating Statistics, published by the U. S. Coast Guard, more than 4,000 boating accidents
occurred in the U.S. last year. These accidents resulted in 560 deaths
and 2,620 injuries. The main causes of these accidents included "operator
inattention, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed,
and machinery failure." Another cause of boating accidents includes
boating while under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs. All of these
causes except for machinery failure can be viewed as negligence or carelessness
on the part of the boat operator.
Boating accidents can involve serious injuries, such as broken bones, internal

accidents drown. In any case where negligence occurred, victims may seek
damages for their medical expenses, lost earnings or income, pain, suffering,
