If you aren’t from Pittsburgh then you may not think about boats being a form of business as well as transportation. The city of Pittsburgh is known as “The Steel City” for its contribution to the industrial revolution. Known for its robust city life, the origins of Pittsburgh seem more than fateful due to its geographical location. The city sits around three major rivers: the Ohio, Alleghany, and Monongahela rivers. As an easy access point for travelers, it makes sense that Pittsburgh grew in riches as a port for many different businesses. The boating industry is one of them.
Nowadays you can see a mixture of all kinds of water transportation from person boats to kayaks to cargo ships. When you look out onto the water you think that it must be easy driving boat because, as an open road, you can see what is all around you. If you are an alert driver who has taken safety classes and is respectful in the water then you may not have any issues. But, just like there are car accidents there are boat accidents. Unlike car accidents, very rarely are their fender benders in boating accidents.
There are more than rivers in the Pittsburgh area. The greater Pittsburgh area is home to around 7 major lakes. These are also occupied by boats, kayaks, and jet skis too. Boats are fun to ride in and fun to drive. Have you ever seen a music video about summertime without some boat in it? There’s a reason boats are a status symbol. Boats give life to summers as well as life to various industries. However, if someone is driving a boat negligently and that negligence causes an accident or injury to you then you need to reach out to our Boat Accident Attorneys at SM&A Law Group in Pittsburgh.
