Reporting an Accident
Boating crash incidents must be reported if they result in the death or injury of anyone or in property damage over $500.
The operator must give notice of the boating crash incident immediately, by the quickest means possible, to the LDWF, the nearest law enforcement agency, or the State Police. To contact LDWF in an emergency, call 1-800-442-2511.
The operator also must file a written report on a boating crash incident report form within five days of the boating crash incident. Boating crash incident report forms are available from any LDWF office or may be downloaded from the LDWF's website, www.wlf.louisiana.gov.
