Top Causes For Boating Accidents at Lake Mead, Las Vegas, NV.

Las Vegas boating accident attorneyLike most states, Nevada has boating safety laws. These laws were created to ensure maximum protection while on the water. Unfortunately, not everyone complies with the laws set in place, which can lead to severe catastrophic injury in the event of an accident. As indicated on the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW.ORG), the DO’s and DON’T’s of boating safety include, but are not limited to:

  • DO wear a life jacket. Life Jackets. They Float. You Don’t. It is mandatory that you keep a life jacket for each seat of you boat on board at all times.

  • DON’T mix alcohol and boating. Never, under any circumstance, is it okay to drink and operate a water vehicle of any kind.

  • DO observe the nautical rules-of-the-road. Share the waterways. Do not drive into oncoming traffic. Be cautious and aware of all physical beings in the water.

  • DON’T stand in a small boat. Stay seated while the boat is moving. Always.

  • DO check the weather forecast before getting underway. One of the leading causes of accidents at Lake Mead, Las Vegas, NV is due to dangerous weather conditions.

  • DON’T overload your boat. This one is kind of obvious…

  • DO file a Float Plan.

  • DO keep a good lookout. And keep a flag on board to let other boaters know if you have a passenger in the water.

Defective Products and Instruments

When boat parts, instruments, or equipment are defective, it can ultimately lead to boating accidents and severe injury. Manufacturers and can, therefore, be found liable for the resulting injuries.

Boating Under the Influence (BUI)

In reference to the DO’s and DON’T’s of boating safety, drinking and boating is… well, bad. Just as you wouldn’t (shouldn’t) operate a car while intoxicated, you should not operate a boat while intoxicated. Boating under the influence (commonly referred to as BUI) is the leading cause of injury and death on the lake. Those who cause injury due to negligently operating a water vehicle are almost always going to be found liable by the courts when evaluating a personal injury lawsuit and can be charged criminally, be required to pay a fine, and serve jail time.

Other forms of negligent boating:

Just as you are required to have a license to operate an automobile, you are required to have a license to operate a boat. Nevada boating education covers various facets of safety laws and regulations, including:

  • Speeding
  • Unauthorized areas for boating

  • Operator, surroundings, and Passenger safety
