Officials are conducting an ongoing investigation to determine the cause of this incident.
In 2011, the U.S. Coast Guard counted 4588 accidents that involved 758 deaths, 3081 injuries and approximately $52 million dollars of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents.
Seeing a copy of the Maine accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Maine Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Maine accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
