Boating is a pastime of many Nebraskans, and occasionally accidents happen due to the negligence of others. Nebraska law requires the boat operator to file an accident report; and if unable to file this report, the owner of the boat is responsible for filing an accident report.
The types of accidents vary greatly, but the most common type of boating accident involves a collision with another vessel. The leading causes of accidents with both open motorboats and personal watercraft are operator inattention, operator inexperience, speeding and alcohol.
The injuries sustained in boating accidents are often serious, and include brain and spinal cord injuries, paralysis and even death.
