California Boat Accident Attorneys Discuss Summer Safety
June 8th, 2015| California boat accident attorneys at Berg Injury Lawyers explain that there are several safety tips boaters should keep in mind while on the water this summer, including:
- Use Floatation Devices– One of the best ways to save lives in the event of a California boat accident is to ensure there are life jackets and floatation devices on board for each person. Life jackets should have a snug fit to prevent slipping and should be worn at all times when the boat is in motion.
- Get Educated– One of the leading causes of California boat accidents today is a lack of operator experience. That’s why the California Division of Boating and Waterways offers safety courses that provide instruction on how to operate a boat safely.
- Don’t Drink and Boat– A large portion of California’s boating accidents are the result of a boat’s driver drinking too much alcohol. So if you plan to drive a boat, also plan to stay sober.
