The basics of boating accidents in New York

Boat accidents can happen during any adventurous outing, and can be brought on by nature's unpredictable elements or even a slip of judgment. Whether it is the mesmerizing views, fresh Atlantic Ocean air or simply a machinery malfunction, a boating accident can turn a joyous day into a disastrous one. 

New York's boating license laws

As with laws governing many other things, every state is able to identify it's laws and guidelines for who is required to obtain a license in order to operate a boat or watercraft. While some states in the nation make a boating license mandatory for every operator of even personal boats used for recreational purposes, New York does not according to the New York State Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

Boating smarts for every adventurer

Rain or shine, boating can prove to be a thrilling and memorable activity -- especially on the many waterside destinations that surround New York. Bringing the whole family along on these recreational outings is another added bonus; however, there are certain safety practices one can keep in mind to ensure the trip on the water is a successful one. 

Injuries covered for maritime workers

Like most people in New York, you have likely heard references to workers' compensation. This is a special type of benefit that can provide financial benefits to people who experience injuries on on the job or perhaps who develop work-related illnesses. If you are one of the many people who works on a boat, ship or in some related areas, you may have access to benefits like these but you would not be covered under standard workers' compensation laws. Instead, your benefits would be pursuant to the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.
