Common Types of Boating Accidents

There are many ways you can be injured in a boating accident. While on a river, lake, or at sea, it’s just as important to remain alert when steering boats as it is when you’re driving on the road. You’re not the only person on the water – others around you depend on you to create a safe environment, but they can also be the ones to put you at risk, too.

Common accidents that occur on boats include:

  • Injuries caused by propellers
  • Injuries caused by inexperienced boat operators who aren’t qualified or lack valid licenses
  • Head-to-head collisions between boats and jet skis as a result of overcrowding, speeding, and not being mindful of staying within your channel on the water
  • Accidents caused by overloading
  • Accidents caused by defective or malfunctioning boats
  • Collisions with docks and buoys
  • Nighttime accidents as a result of improper lighting
  • Failure to carry safety equipment on board

Many of these accidents are caused by carelessness or a lack of experience. Even when you’re going out on a boat for a casual party or even just for an hour-long cruise, you must be prepared at all times and aware of your surroundings. Some accidents are also caused by intoxicated boating. Georgia prohibits individuals from driving boats of they have a blood-alcohol content of 0.08% -- the same requirements applied to drivers of cars.
