The State of Florida, surrounded by water on three sides, and home to thousands of lakes, rivers and canals, is universally recognized as one of the boating capitals of the world. Unfortunately, with so many varieties of vessels traversing our waterways on a daily basis, boating accidents are bound to happen. Boating accidents happen due to variety of causes, including operator carelessness, inattention or inexperience, excessive speed and alcohol intoxication, and according to data from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Florida consistently leads the nation – by a wide margin – in both the number of boating accidents, and in the number of injuries and fatalities resulting from these accidents.
