Michigan Boat Accident Attorney
Last year, nearly 200 people died from injuries received during boating accidents in Michigan alone. That is nearly one-third of all the people whose lives are lost in the entire country due to boating accidents. Also, 90% of boaters who die from boating accidents were not wearing a life vest or a safety jacket, and were not aware of basic boating safety precautions. If you have been in a boating accident in the near past, make sure those responsible for your injuries do not get away!
According to the United States Coast Guard (USCG), more than 3,000 people are injured in boating accidents and collisions every year. This high number is attributed to many factors involving operator negligence, reckless boating, speeding, and alcohol involvement prior to or during the boating accident.
Michigan residents are known to love their boating. After all, the state has the second most registered boats in the nation. Michigan has nearly one million boats registered. With proper training and adherence to safety guidelines and precautions, boating accident injuries can be prevented. Do not be a victim of a preventable boating accident. Boat safely and sober. Operating a boat while under the influence is against the law.
