Iowa Lack of Training / Experience Lawyers
Recreational boating is a popular pastime in the United States. Over the past year there has been a 0.23 percent increase in registered boats across the country. Unfortunately, along with an increase in registered boats, there has also been an increase in boating accidents and fatalities. In 2009, there were 4,730 boating accidents resulting in $36 million in property damage. Although alcohol is the leading cause of boating accidents and fatalities, inexperienced boat operators can also be a major threat to the safety of everyone on the water.

Lack of Training Dangers
Statistics from the past five years report that only 14 percent of the roughly 800 boating accident deaths occurred on boats with a trained and experienced operator. Operating a boat is very different from driving a car or any other motor vehicle and operators need proper training and experience in order to safely navigate the waters. You may be able to recover compensation for the following if you have been injured in a boating accident:
- Payment for medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
It is important that negligent boaters are held accountable for the damage they cause, and our dedicated attorneys are ready to help.
