Common Causes of Boating Accidents in Florida
In Florida, all boat operators are responsible for exercising the highest degree of caution when out on the water—including those on personal watercraft, like Jet Skis. When the operator of a boat acts negligently, recklessly, or carelessly, they put everyone around them at risk.
Some of the leading causes of boating accidents in Florida include:
- Failing to pay attention to the surroundings
- Reckless or careless operation of the vessel
- Driving at dangerous or excessive speeds
- Boating while under the influence (BUI)
- Operator inexperience/lack of knowledge
- Boating equipment failure or malfunction
- Driving too closely to other boats/vessels
- Failing to watch out for skiers or Jet Skis
