Boating Accidents Kentucky Boating Accidents

Kentucky boating, watercraft, and jet ski accidents, can cause serious injury to passengers, other watercrafts, and swimmers. Too often these types of accidents involve carelessness, inexperience, and sometimes even alcohol. Boaters and watercraft users need to be extra cautious, even more so than drivers on roadways, because of the lack of defined travel ways and spaces. In Kentucky, it’s important that watercraft users maintain their vessels, operate their watercrafts reasonably, have safety equipment, not allow alcohol on their vessels, and if under the age of 18 have taken a required watercraft education course before operating the vessel.
