An injury that occurs on or with a boat is considered a boating accident. A boating accident can occur on someone’s privately owned boat, a cruise ship, a personal watercraft, or a ferry. It is a general rule of the law that the operator of a boat and its owner has a duty to exercise the highest degree of care in order to prevent injuries to others. The most common boating accidents are collisions with other boats, slip and falls on the boat, sinking and boat disappearance. Boating injuries usually occur because of a reckless or careless operator, boat malfunctions or an inexperienced operator. When a boat related accident occurs, a thorough investigation and evaluation of its cause(s) by an experienced legal team is always the best way to proceed.
