Injuries Are Most Common In Boating Accidents

The most common injuries in boating accidents are shocks, bleeding, burns, broken bones, head, neck, or spinal injuries. Responsible vessel operators keep waterproof first-aid kits and take certified courses in first aid and CPR.

Many boating accidents result in minor injuries like bruises or cuts, however, when a collision with another vessel is involved, the injuries are usually severe. Boating disasters can result in tragic injuries, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Severe lacerations
  • Lost limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Wrongful death
