Common Causes of Boating Injuries
Some boat accident injuries can be easily avoided by practicing proper boat/water sport safety. Others can be completely unavoidable and are the fault of no one.
Before jumping on board, make sure to take all necessary precautions to maximize safety. Wearing a fitted life jacket, keeping a look out for others and following basic waterway rules can help reduce your chances of being hurt on the water.
A few of the most common causes of boat accident injuries on Arizona lakes and waterways include:
- Slippery boat deck
- Improper boat maintenance
- Passengers acting recklessly
- Proper safety gear is not on vessel
- Boat operator is driving distracted or recklessly
- Boat operator is driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- Vessel collides with another boat or water sport object (jet ski, kayak, wake board, tube, etc.)
If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, seek medical attention immediately to treat any injuries. You will also want to report the incident to the Arizona Game and Fish Department within the first 48 hours. Once the game and fish department is notified, contact an experienced Tucson boating accident attorney. After you make that call, you will be grateful to have someone on your side pushing your claim through the system.
