Water sports are enjoyed by people of all ages, especially in Michigan. Unfortunately, taking in the beauty and having fun on Michigan’s Great Lakes can sometimes cause us to forget that the rules of the “road” still apply. Those operating a boat or other personal water craft are expected to navigate waters carefully and responsibly. Unfortunately this isn’t always the case, and a boating accident can happen.
Even on the lake, people are prone to the same behaviors that endanger motorists on the road, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, distracted driving, or behaving recklessly. Should the operator of a boat or other personal water craft act in a negligent or reckless manner and cause injury to another, he or she may be held liable for the harm that is sustained by the victim.
Boat or other watercraft accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries, including death and drowning.
