Detroit Boating While Intoxicated Accident Lawyers
The U.S. Coast Guard has warned boaters all over the country that it is even more dangerous to consume alcohol while on the water than it is on the road. This is due in part to the fact that boater’s fatigue—a condition in which factors such as overheating and the persistent rocking motion of the boat affect the driver’s physical and mental capabilities—is significantly worsened by the addition of drugs or alcohol. A report issued by the Insurance Information Institute stated that drugs or alcohol are involved in over half of all boating accidents, and the U.S. Coast Guard has reported that boating accidents caused by intoxicated drivers result in an increase of fatalities by nearly 34%.
Regardless of what type of watercraft it is, any vehicle operated by an inebriated driver is likely to do severe damage and has the potential to cause bodily harm or death to others in the water. If you have been a victim of a drunk or inebriated boat driver, call the boat accident attorneys at Detroit Personal Injury Attorneys, to learn more about how we can help you recover.
