Boating Accidents Rise During Summer

Who loves boating? The wind, the water, the waves, the sunshine. Everyone except those prone to seasickness I suppose! Another friendly warning from your local attorneys – be careful on the water. According to our beloved U.S. Coast Guard (seriously, we have the greatest Coast Guard in the world, hands down), between 40 and 50 boating accidents involving damages of over $2,000 happen every year. Unfortunately, about five people are killed in boating accidents every year.

The good news is that Connecticut has the second lowest incidents of boating accidents of all New England states. Still, our view is that one injury or death is one too many.

Love your families and friends. Have fun on the water. But come back into port safe and sound so you can go out again and again.
