According to the US Coast Guard in 2015, Florida continues to lead the nation in boating accidents. The top four causes of accidents in Florida are: failure to pay attention, inexperienced boaters, distracted boaters and speeding. Be wary of some considerations that you should take while operating a boat, jet ski or other sea vessels.

-Make sure your boat has the proper safety equipment on board in case of an emergency.
-The operator should have the proper licensing.
-No alcoholic beverages for the operator.
-The boat should be in good operating condition.
-The operator needs to have satisfactory vision and hearing.

The failure to properly adhere to some of the precautions above, in addition to others, may cause the operator and owner of the boat to be more legally liable for any accidents or collisions caused by their operation of the boat.
