What Should I Do If I Am Involved In A Boating Accident?
Boating accidents usually require a report to either the state agency
regulating boats or to the United States Coast Guard or both. If an operator is
involved in a collision with another boat or an "allision"
(which means striking a fixed object or a non-moving vessel), he or she should
immediately contact the state agency regulating boats to ascertain if any type
of report is required. Failure to remain on the scene, render aid, and report
the boating accident to an appropriate law enforcement agency in a timely
manner is a crime. If someone was injured or extensive property damage was
incurred be sure to contact your insurance company. If someone else was
responsible for the collision contact us as soon as possible.
