Each year thousands of people are injured in boating accidents. Accidents can
occur in a variety of situations ranging from ocean-going commercial and cruise
line vessels to small pleasure craft on our navigable waterways. When referring
to a motor vehicle accident we often refer to the "Rules of the Road" in order
to determine what each person's responsibilities were regarding the safe operation
of their vehicle. Similarly, there are rules established by the Coast Guard and
various state agencies that outline the rules for safe boating.
