Boating accidents can leave devastating and lifelong injuries behind, which is why it is extremely important for those involved in these types of accidents to contact a Long Island boating accident lawyer right away to secure their legal rights.  The main cause of boating accidents around the country is operator inattention.  Other factors can cause or contribute to a boating accident, including inexperienced boaters, alcohol, speeding, and carelessness.  Nonetheless, sometimes a boating accident occurs because of a defect in the boat, which can be the basis of a third-party lawsuit against the boat’s manufacturer.

The United States Coast Guard’s statistics show that there were almost 5,000 reported boating accidents in 2009 alone.  Of these, nearly 750 people lost their lives and more than 3,300 were injured. For these people, a day of fun on the water went seriously wrong, sometimes turning deadly. Boating accidents can occur in motor boats, canoes, kayaks, and other vessels.
