recreational boating accidents Archives

Teen impaled by anchor walks away to tell the tale

When you are out on the open water, it is very important that all of your boat's accessories, like anchors and other gear, are properly secured. When they aren't, or when there is a defect that leads to one of them breaking free, there is always a potential for injury.

What are the types of life jackets?

You may know that not all people are required to wear life jackets when boating, especially when they're over the age of 13. However, many marinas and lakes require that everyone wears them when a boat is in motion as a way to make people safer and to prevent drowning accidents. Every state has different regulations when it comes to wearing personal floatation devices, too, which is important to discuss before you head out on the water.

Know where to turn if you're in a recreational boat crash

Boating accidents are horrible because people could be badly hurt and also be thrown into a life-threatening situation where they risk drowning. Someone with just a moderate head injury may not be able to coordinate themselves long enough to swim to shore, or someone who has been trapped under debris may not be able to come up for air.

Be safer on the water with these boating tips

It's a beautiful time of year, so it's no wonder that so many people enjoy heading out on the water. With spring and summer come tourists and visitors to the Gulf Coast and surrounding international waters, and that's where some problems can occur.
