Boat Accidents And Their Legal Perspectives

Nobody ever thinks of getting injured on a boat ride. Nonetheless, there are instances when people meet with boat accidents either due to the negligence of the boat driver or due to any other reasons. The result of this can be getting hurt either seriously, and in the worst scenario, leading to a fatality.

Various splendid and beautiful lakes like Lake Washington, Lake Union, and Lake Sammamish entice the people of Seattle to go for a ride.

What does the Law say?

The Boating laws in the State of Washington focus on overall coverage of this activity. It includes the rules and regulations with respect to the driver, the condition of the boat, the driver’s expertise, the conditions of the water, and the safety pre-requisites to be followed inside the boat.

Boating incidents and their reasons:

Irrespective of such stringent regulations there were more than 114 boat accidents in the State in 2017. This also led to 15 fatalities and $1.28 million in losses. It is strange that when people step onto a boat, they have a distinct mindset of what they are going to do. But meeting with a boating accident ruins their plans, and the results are sometimes devastating.

Some of the reasons for the accidents are:

  • Drunk Driving
  • Inexperienced driving
  • Rash boat driving
  • Negligent driving
  • Careless driving

For instance, take a look at this incident involving a young and inexperienced boat driver. The 28-year old driver rammed his speedboat into a Moore sailboat and lost his life along with injuring three other people.
