Ace Boater reports that roughly a third of water-related deaths are from boating accidents. Boating accidents are similar to motor vehicle accidents in regard to carelessness or recklessness of the operator often being the cause. Unlike motor vehicle insurance, boat insurance is not necessary in Ontario; however, an operator’s license is required.
Although boat insurance is not required, boats are often covered under homeowner insurance. Accident victims as well as their family members can claim compensation for their losses from their own insurance company and from the person responsible for the accident. You can receive damages for the effect that your injuries have had on your life and your ability to support yourself and your family.
Navigating the complexities of boating laws and insurance can be complicated, especially if the boat was not insured or the operator unlicensed. Hacio Law is here to help you get the value you need for care and compensation.
