Boating accidents are similar to motor vehicle accidents, but have added complexity due to different licensing, insurance, and safety requirements, as well as the risk of drowning or near-drowning. The majority of boating accidents involve recreational watercraft, such as speedboats, sailboats, fishing boats, yachts, jet skis, catamarans, and houseboats. Commercial boats and common carriers, such as ferries or harbor cruises, have higher standards for safety than others. Because of all these factors, it’s crucial that you have skilled representation for your claim.
