There are a variety of causes of serious injury accidents involving watercraft. Commercial fishermen and other occupational boaters may know how to operate their vessel in every way, but mechanical failure and defective parts could contribute to a dangerous or deadly situation. Many recreational boaters understand the rules of the water, but may not be as familiar as a professional boater. Both negligence and inexperience play a role in boating accidents and disasters can occur when a boater fails to notice indicators or does not act fast enough to avoid a dangerous situation.
