Boat Accidents in New Jersey

Jefferson, NJ – One Injured in Boat Crash with Jet Ski at Lake HopatcongEvery year, boat accidents across the state of New Jersey send countless people to local hospitals with injuries. Although there are many things we can do to prevent others from being harmed, there is very little that we can do to ensure that other boat and watercraft operators are using their vehicles responsibly. As a result, we continue to see people harmed due to the negligence of others.

In New Jersey, some of the leading causes of watercraft accidents include:

  • Operating the boat while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Hazardous water conditions
  • Driving at excessive speeds
  • Inexperience
  • Driver inattention
  • Careless and reckless operations
