Chicago is a great city for boating, with its famous skyline and beautiful shoreline along Lake Michigan. Navy Pier, Dime Pier, and abundant harbors attract a multitude of boaters each year.
Recreational water activities should be relaxing and enjoyable experiences, but even if you have the proper safety precautions in place, accidents can happen at any time due to the negligence of others. Other boats may be manned by inexperienced operators, or someone who just isn’t paying attention. Accidents are varied and can include water ski or propellor injuries, flooding, fire, explosion, and jet ski mishaps – just to name a few. Speeding and alcohol can cause other calamities like collision and falling overboard.
