Reckless Boating Lawyers

Boat operators may not necessarily have the same safety regulations as drivers on the road, but there are still some important, common-sense precautions that everyone must follow while on the water. If boat drivers fail to operate their watercraft safely, their reckless behavior can put everyone around them at risk of serious injuries. Thus, it is imperative for victims of boating accidents to hold unsafe boat operators accountable for their negligence in order to discourage this carelessness in the future.

Common Types of Reckless Boating

Boating accidents can lead to a range of severe injuries due to blunt force trauma, propeller lacerations, and the ever-present threat of drowning. Boat operators who ignore these dangers and drive their watercraft without regard for the health and safety of others may be held liable for their unsafe behavior. Common forms of reckless boating include the following:

  • Operating a boat above a safe speed
  • Weaving between other boats or watercraft
  • Ignoring swimmers in the water
  • Failing to slow down near buoys or docks
  • Operating a boat while intoxicated

These inexcusably reckless acts may put everyone around that boat at risk of injury, including people on the shore or nearby docks. Although boat drivers may not have to posted speed limits or other obvious limitations, they should still carefully consider their situation and the safety of others around them.
