If you are deemed at fault for a boating accident that leads to another individual’s injuries, there is a risk of being sued for injury-related damages. You can potentially shield yourself from these costs by having boat insurance. In addition, a policy can offer coverage to reduce legal expenses that you could incur in these situations.
Property Damage Liability
From mechanical failure to bad weather, there are a number of reasons you could wind up in a boating accident. In the event that a collision is your fault, you are likely to be held liable for any related damages. A boat insurance policy will cover the repair or replacement of any property that was damaged as a result of the accident up to the amount specified in the policy.
Uninsured Boat Operators
If you are involved in an accident on the water caused by someone else, they might have the proper insurance coverage to cover any damages and they might not. If this occurs, it can be beneficial to have your own policy that offers protection for damages that are sustained during a collision with other watercraft operators who are uninsured.
