Los Angeles area and San Fernando Valley boating accidents include boat crashes, jet ski accidents, and any watercraft-related collisions. A boating accident can occur on someone’s privately owned boat or even a ferry. It is a general rule of law that the operators of a boat and its owner have a duty to exercise the highest degree of care in order to prevent injuries to others.
The most common boating accidents are collisions with other boats, people slipping and falling on boats, sinking, and boat disappearance. In California, there were almost 800 boating accidents in 2003, as reported by the United States Coast Guard. While most of the accidents were minor or resulted in injury only, 61 people died in watercraft-related accidents.
Boating injuries usually occur because of a reckless or careless operator, boat malfunction, or an inexperienced operator. For anyone who has been a victim of a boating accident in the Los Angeles area, it may be possible to file a claim to seek financial compensation for hardships and losses.
