Causes of Boating Accidents
When a boating accident is not the result of extreme weather conditions, negligence is generally found to be the main cause. Individuals, groups of people, small businesses, or large corporations can all be responsible for endangering the lives of others through carelessness.
The most common causes of boating accidents include:
- Crashes with other vessels, fixed objects, or people
- Negligent operation such as endangering a towed skier or tuber
- Reckless operation, i.e., boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Dangerous or faulty parts
- Negligent maintenance
