Over 600 deaths

In 2015, the Coast Guard counted 4,158 accidents that involved 626 deaths, 2,613 injuries and approximately $42 million dollars of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents.

More than 80% were not wearing life jackets

Where cause of death was known, 76% of fatal boating accident victims drowned. Of those drowning victims with reported life jacket usage, 85% were not wearing a life jacket.

Nearly 700 injured

Nearly 700 people were injured last year from an accident caused by speeding, or by the driver not paying attention, and that doesn't include the almost 250 injuries caused by alcohol use.

Spending a day in the water doesn't have to end in an accident. Be safe, pay attention, wear a life jacket and leave the alcohol at home.

If your day on the water ended with an injury caused by someone else's negligence, call us today at 615-242-9000 or contact us online.
