WATER-TUBING ACCIDENTS ON MINNESOTA LAKES
Summer is finally upon us, and many Minnesotans are headed to the lakes to enjoy our few months of beautiful weather and great boating and fishing activities.
Unfortunately, every year there are numerous accidents on MN lakes from waterski accidents, boat accidents, jet ski accidents and tubing accidents. However, most of these accidents are preventable. They happen because a boat driver is not paying attention or is driving too fast.
Our accident injury attorneys have seen that a water tube accident can happen for many reasons. In many cases, the driver of the boat pulling the tube is going too fast or not driving carefully. There have also been tubing cases where the driver of the boat drove the tube into a dock. If the boat driver is not paying attention he can pull the watertube in front of another oncoming boat causing a collision. These types of boat accidents also happen because of driver inexperience generally or inexperience pulling a water tube.
Injury from a water tubing accident can be serious because of the speed the tube is traveling on the water. There is very little protection for the people in the tube and they are often being pulled head first. Therefore, the injuries can be serious, and result in large medical bills.
HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE FOR BOAT ACCIDENT
Fortunately, most people who own a boat have liability coverage included with their homeowners insurance. If you are injured in a water tube accident, the insurance of the boat owner may help to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and other compensation.
