Boating accidents can occur for a number reasons, but usually are the result of someone’s negligent operation of his or her boat. The careless party’s negligence may be caused by improper operation, texting, drinking or drug use. Boat operators that drink alcohol and operate a motorboat can be charged with a DWI. Also, a boat operator can be charged with a DUI if they are under the influence of any type of stimulant while operating a boat.
