The US Coast Guard documented more than 5,000 recreational boating accidents last year, which accounted for 688 fatalities. There were nearly 4000 injuries, and property damage from these accidents exceeded $53 million.

CALL THE POLICE OR COAST GUARD. A police officer or Coast Guard official is trained to collect all the necessary information and evidence from the parties involved. An official report is very important by creating a record of what transpired, which will determine who is at fault. If possible, take photos of the accident. Obtain pertinent information from other water crafts involved: registration number, names of other drivers, insurance companies, policy numbers, etc. If there are any witnesses, get their names and phone numbers. Then call Darryl.

NEVER LEAVE THE SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT! Even the smallest accident can cause damages and injuries. Stay at the scene of the accident.
