Sailboats and power boats are a common sight on Ontario’s lakes and rivers, and they are usually a source of fun and amusement for many. Unfortunately, boating accidents can have severe consequences, resulting in such things as serious personal injury and drowning.
Boating Safety Rules and Regulations
As with cars and drivers, boats and their owners are governed by certain rules and regulations. These include equipment standards, rules about right of way, and licensing and registration requirements. However, when it comes to lawsuits and compensation, the rules between boats and cars are different. You will need legal assistance in order to protect your rights.
