Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers

Recreational boating is popular throughout the Pacific coast, and especially in California where thousands of boats travel every year. California’s lakes, rivers, and the Pacific ocean offer some of the most beautiful scenery and opportunity for enjoyment, relaxation and recreation for sailors, boaters, fishers and skiers.

Boats range in size from small, personal watercrafts, to ski boats and houseboats. In addition to its recreational uses, California’s waterways serve as vital passageways for commercial vessels like barges.

Boating Injury Statistics

Unfortunately, along with such traffic comes accidents. When someone is operating a boat or other watercraft recklessly, such as while intoxicated, even the most careful boater is at risk of injury or even death.

According to the California Department of Boating and Waterways, from 1999 to 2008, there have been 8,386 boating accidents. Such accidents are extremely dangerous. According to the Department, these accidents have resulted in 4,663 injured persons. This means that if you are involved in a boating accident, there is a 55% chance you will suffer an injury. In addition, 502 people have died in a boating accident from 1999-2008. Aside from the injuries that are sustained in boating accidents, such accidents are extremely expensive. Boating accidents have resulted in over $49,000,000 in property damage from 1999 to 2008.
