Accidents Caused by Water Around the Tempe, Arizona Area
Boating is popular among locals and tourists alike during Arizona’s mild winters. However, just like operating a motor vehicle, truck, motorcycle, or off-road vehicle, these pursuits are not without risk.
According to the annual report of the United States Coast Guard for 2021, 2,678 people were injured and 610 people were killed in boating accidents across the country. All sorts of disasters can occur on the water, from ships colliding with other vessels or fixed objects to boats sinking or people falling overboard.
Taking Responsibility for Mistakes on the Water
Like operating a car, PWC operation calls for training and experience. In the state of Arizona, boaters do not need to show proof of education or licensure at this time.
A negligent boat operator who injures another person might be held legally responsible for their actions. Negligence on the part of boat operators can cause serious injuries, including paralysis, brain damage, and even death.
The boat’s operator and owner may both be held responsible for damages. An owner could be held liable, for instance, if they intentionally allow a person without the proper qualifications to run the ship. Furthermore, the maker could be held liable in legal proceedings if defective equipment is discovered during the examination.
