Causes of Boating Accidents

Although boat accidents can be caused by various factors, operator negligence and/or inexperience are commonly to blame. In fact, operator inattention, operator impairment, speeding and operator inexperience are among the top 10 causes of boating accidents across the U.S., according to the USCG.1

In the aftermath of a boat accident, determining the exact causes – and whether negligence was involved – will be pivotal to uncovering the options for financial recovery.

Boat accidents can be as catastrophic and deadly as motor vehicle accidents. In fact, according to the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), the nearly 4,500 recreational boating accidents that occurred in and around U.S. waters last year caused more than 700 deaths and at least 2,900 injuries. The property damage alone from these accidents cost about $49 million.1

What may be more distressing than these statistics are the facts that:

  • Boating accidents have been on the rise in recent years – Since 2015, boat accidents across the U.S. have surged more than 7 percent, and fatalities from these accidents have increased by about 12 percent.1 Since 2010, boating accidents in Texas have spiked more than 20 percent.2
  • Most boating accidents are caused by some form of preventable negligence – Much of the damage, injuries and deaths caused by boating accidents could have been prevented if someone had been more careful, attentive, experienced and/or sober.
