Important Safety Reminders To Avoid Boating Accidents

Hawaii news now reports that the son of a country music singer Craig Morgan has died in a tragic boating accident. The 19-year-old boy, Jerry Greer, had been tubing with a friend when the incident occurred. The friend survived the accident, but Greer did not. Additional details surrounding the fatality have not been released.

With its idyllic climate and being surrounded by water, boating and other water sports are extremely popular in Hawaii. However, due to its popularity, boat operators need to use care to avoid accidents. This includes taking boating safety courses such as the one provided by the Department of Land and Natural Resources. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, roughly 7000 boating accidents are reported each year, and almost 1000 fatalities.

Additional safety measures include ensuring that you have life jackets, avoiding reckless or distracted boating, not boating under the influence, and staying out of hazardous water ways. Despite taking precautions, fatalities may still occur.

For more information, or if you or a loved one has been in a boating accident, please contact the experienced Hawaii personal injury lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP for an immediate consultation.
