When Boat Accidents Result In Serious Injuries
Boating is one of many outstanding recreational offerings of our region of Wisconsin. Camping, the RV life and boating all bring many tourists as well as provide pleasure for residents of the area. With the fun of boating come risks, of course. Boating accidents at Lake Geneva and elsewhere can occur for many reasons, including:
- Boaters’ inexperience
- Boating while intoxicated (BWI)
- Congested waterways
- Distracted boating
Injuries are often serious or fatal. Drowning is the No. 1 cause of death in fatal boating accidents in Wisconsin, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
