In 2016, the Coast Guard counted 4,463 accidents that involved 701 deaths, 2,903 injuries and approximately $49 million dollars of property damage as a result of recreational boating accidents, according to US Coast Guard’s Boating Safety Division. Whether these accidents occur on speedboats, jet skis, party boats, cruise ships or other privately owned vessels, boating accidents have the potential to cause major injuries or fatalities. Boating injuries usually occur because of a reckless or careless operator, operating a boat under the influence, boat malfunction, or an inexperienced operator.
