Boating accidents

As cottage season approaches, many Canadians turn to the water relaxation and recreation. While boating can be an exciting activity, accidents can result in serious injury.

Just like operating a motor vehicle, controlling a boat requires safety training, licenses, and adherence to traffic regulations. There are many ways to keep safe while boating including wearing a personal floatation device, complying to speed limits, and exercising caution in poor weather conditions.

Despite safety measures in place, a large number boating accidents and deaths are preventable. Leading causes of boating accidents include failure to wear flotation devices and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

You may be entitled to compensation after being involved in a boating accident from either the boat owner or operator. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help navigate your legal options.
