Boating is no doubt an enjoyable pastime for Georgian’s especially during warmer weather, but it important to understand that there is always a possibility of a boat injury. A boat is a vehicle, and an accident can happen at any time when you’re out on the water–just as there is always the possibility of a car accident when you are out on the road.
Although most boating accidents may be minimal in nature, a trip, or a fall during a large wave and things of that nature, there are also other more serious accidents that can be life-threatening. Safety is key.
In the case of a major boating accident, aside from the property damage that the boat may sustain, more important are those injuries that are critical and or fatal.
The Common Causes Of Boating Accidents
Any number of accidents can occur out on the waterways, many can be prevented by being prepared and putting your safety and that of other passengers at the forefront of your boat ride. Here is a list of common causes that may result in a Georgia boating accident:
- Boating while under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances
