What laws govern DWI boating accidents?

Due to pervasive awareness campaigns, most people know about the dangers of drinking and driving-the impairment it causes and the increased possibility of becoming involved in an accident. Drinking and driving is considered a serious problem, which is why some people may hesitate to get behind the wheel if they have been drinking. Not many people feel the same way before operating a recreational boat.

What if I get injured on someone else's premises?

As we go about our day-to-day routine, entering and exiting shops and businesses, we never think that the premises we are about to enter as being unsafe. We take it as a given that the person responsible for the upkeep of the building would have ensured that they are maintaining a safe environment. But what happens when they shirk their duty and someone gets injured as a result?

Drunk driver crashes into stationary police officer

Many people do not think much of having a few alcoholic drinks and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, not understanding how impaired they have become because of the alcohol. Their reaction time is slowed down, and they are not capable of making the best decisions because of their cognitive impairment. One bad decision on their part has the ability to change the course of not only their life forever but also the lives of those who are on the street with them at that time.

Recreational boating accidents highest in July

According to the executive director of the National Safe Boating Council, July is the busiest boating time of the year. It is estimated that millions of boaters will take to the waters during the extended 4th of July weekend. With more boats on the water, the chance for recreational boating accidents also increases-this is perhaps why July is also the deadliest month on the water, as the most fatalities take place during this month as well.
