The Causes of Kansa City Boating Accidents
Serious accidents involving boats, Jet Skis and other watercraft can happen for many reasons, but the most common are:
- Drinking and partying on the water
- Overcrowded waterways
- Water skiing accidents
- Failure of boaters to see jet skiers
It is just as illegal to operate boats and watercraft under the influence of alcohol and drugs as it is to operate a car, truck or motorcycle under the influence. Even when alcohol is not involved, reckless use of watercraft can lead to life-threatening injuries and deaths. We fully investigate the claims of our clients in order to determine who is liable and hold them accountable for their negligence.
