Water-related incidents that occur in or around bodies of water in Chandler, Arizona
In the warm months of the year in Arizona, boating is a popular pastime for locals and visitors alike. Nonetheless, one must recognize that there are substantial dangers connected with these pursuits, just as there are dangers connected with driving a car, truck, motorbike, or ATV.
In 2021, 2,678 people were injured in boating accidents across the United States, according to data from the U.S. Coast Guard’s annual report. There were a total of 610 fatalities as a result of these tragic events. Accidents on the water might involve anything from colliding with another boat or a stationary item to being flooded, grounded, or having a passenger fall overboard.
Making Sure That Careless People Pay
Personal watercraft operation requires skill and experience, much like driving a car. It’s worth noting that boaters in Arizona are not obligated to show proof of schooling or licensing at this time.
Someone could be held liable for carelessness if they were to operate a boat without the necessary abilities, resulting in injury to another person. Spinal cord injuries, concussions, and even fatalities can come from boat operators who are careless or unprepared for the hazards they face.
The operator and the owner of a boat may each bear responsibility depending on the nature of the incident. An owner may be held accountable, for instance, if they intentionally let a person who is not qualified to operate the ship do so. It’s also worth noting that if a faulty product is uncovered after an investigation, the maker could be held liable in court.
