Date:7/18/2013

Southfield, Michigan (PRWEB) July 19, 2013

According to a recent study released by the United States Coast Guard on May 13, 2013 (http://www.uscgboating.org/assets/1/workflow_staging/Page/705.PDF), in Michigan, in 2012 there were 103 boating accidents, down from 129 in 2011. In 2012, sixteen people were killed in Michigan boating accidents and another 65 victims suffered serious injuries.

Research shows that drowning is the main cause of death when compared to recreational boating accidents. The five most common type of recreational boat that lead to the most drowning injuries and deaths in 2012 include: open motor boats (211), canoes (43), kayaks (40), cabin motorboats (35), and pontoons (30).

In addition, it was found that boating accidents are extremely costly. In Michigan, boating accidents cost nearly $ 410,525 in damages last year; the average insurance claim is about $2,000 or more in damages per injured victim.

A boating accident victim who suffered a drowning injury may be able to file a Michigan lawsuit. These include claims for payment of pain and suffering damages, medical bills incurred as a result of your injuries, and more.

Standards for liability in a boating accident vary from state to state. In most cases, a person is at fault if he or she acted negligently. The general rule is that people act negligently when they do not conduct themselves as a reasonable person would in a similar situation. This usually means whether they followed all safety rules including providing the adequate amount of life vests on board and were mindful of the safety of their passengers and other boaters.
