Despite much more stringent licensing requirements in recent years, recreational vehicles such as boats are still involved in many boating accidents every year that result in catastrophic injuries and deaths.

Police urge safety on Ontario waterways amid an increase in boating deaths

Provincial police say three times as many people have died in boating accidents on Ontario waterways this year compared to the same time in 2015.

The OPP says eight people have died in six separate incidents so far in 2016.

The primary source of compensation in many boat accidents are accident benefits from a homeowner’s insurance policy. However, you may also have a claim against the driver who was responsible for the accident. This is known as a tort claim.
