Boating Accident Report Form

Most reports of accidents must be made within five days of the accident. However, you must file an accident report within 48 hours if a person dies or is injured as a result of the accident.

The operator also must file an accident report with the MSHP if:

  • A person dies or disappears or…
  • An injury occurs causing any person to lose consciousness, require medical treatment, or be disabled for more than 24 hours or…
  • Damage to the vessel and other property exceeds $500.
