What Should I Do If I Am Involved In a Boating Accident?

Boating is a such a wonderful hobby, especially in our gorgeous city.  Sadly, boating accidents occur far too often due to driver negligence and many times drinking while boating.  Boating accidents usually require a report to either the state agency regulating boats or to the United States Coast Guard or both. If an operator is involved in a collision with another boat or an “allision” (which means striking a fixed object or a non-moving vessel), he or she should immediately contact the state agency regulating boats to ascertain if any type of report is required. Failure to remain on the scene, render aid, and report the boating accident to an appropriate law enforcement agency in a timely manner is a crime.

If someone was injured or extensive property damage was incurred be sure to contact your insurance company. If someone else was responsible for the collision contact us as soon as possible.  The attorneys at Funk & Associates are available to discuss your case with you.
