Deciphering Boating Accident Types and Causes


Boating accidents are as diverse as the waterways on which they occur, and identifying the root cause is pivotal to building a strong legal case. According to the U.S. Coast Guard’s 2021 report, while there was a decrease in boating fatalities and injuries, alcohol remained a leading factor in boating-related fatalities nationwide. At KRW, our legal team excels in demonstrating that injuries are often the result of reckless or distracted behavior by those responsible for operating the boat.

Several common causes of boating accidents include:

  1. Boat operator negligence or inattention
  2. Inexperienced operators at the helm
  3. An improper lookout leading to collisions or near-misses
  4. Defective equipment or mechanical failure
  5. Excessive speed and reckless maneuvering

Moreover, a variety of boating and water-related accidents can occur, including:

  1. Collisions with other boats or stationary objects such as docks
  2. Swimmers sustaining injuries from propeller accidents
  3. Boats colliding with swimmers or water skiers
  4. Boat capsizing incidents or passengers falling overboard, often due to excessive speed and unstable conditions

The Pivotal Role of Evidence Collection


Building a rock-solid case in a boating accident injury claim hinges on the quality and thoroughness of evidence collected. KRW’s legal experts understand the paramount importance of this aspect of the legal process and leave no stone unturned. Here are some key steps we take to ensure the collection of compelling and irrefutable evidence:

  1. Methodically tracking down all parties involved and obtaining sworn statements from them.
  2. Collaborating seamlessly with local law enforcement agencies to secure comprehensive accident reports.
  3. Scrutinizing photographs or videos from the accident scene and its immediate aftermath, seeking valuable visual evidence.
  4. Analyzing data from the boat’s navigational equipment and devices to reconstruct the sequence of events leading to the accident.
  5. Gathering comprehensive information about the condition of the boat before and after the accident, which can be instrumental in establishing liability.

It’s important to know the difference between types and causes and how they can relate to your case. Traffic collisions can be classified by general types. Types of collision include
  • Head-on
  • Road Departures
  • Rear End
  • Side Collision
  • Roll Overs
Many people think that property damage claims and personal injury claims are one and the same. They are not. While a personal injury attorney will often take on a property damage claim in conjunction with a personal injury claim, they typically will not take on a property damage claim alone.

Commercial vehicle accidents can cause life-threatening or fatal injuries. If you were injured in a commercial vehicle accident or lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of a company vehicle, you might be entitled to compensation. While no amount of money can make up for the anguish you’re facing from this accident, financial compensation can help you pay for current and future expenses stemming from the crash.

A personal injury claim can help you pursue compensation for:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Therapy and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Costs to repair or replace your vehicle
  • Pain and suffering
