After a Boating Accident

If you've been involved in a boating accident, it's essential to take immediate action to protect your rights and safety. After ensuring everyone's safety and seeking medical assistance for any injuries, it's crucial to gather information about the accident, including exchanging contact and insurance details with the other party involved. Documenting the scene with photos and obtaining witness statements can also be valuable for your case.
