Boating Accident

Texas Boating Accident Attorney

Causes of Boating Accidents

Serious personal injury and death in boating accidents are most often caused by collisions with other boats or other types of water craft such as Jetskis, speedboats, bayou boats, motorboats, canoes, sailboats, paddleboats, ferrys, and more. Boating and personal watercraft injuries and deaths are often caused by a boat capsizing, resulting in people falling overboard. Alcohol is often a major factor in boating injuries, though defective boat equipment may also play a role in boat accidents.

Capsizing Causes Injuries and Death

When a boat turns on its side or completely turns over after a boating accident, capsizing occurs. Boating accidents and collisions are occurring more frequently because of faster boats and the increased number of boats in the water.

Boating Accidents and Personal Injury

Some examples of personal injuries that result from boating accidents and watercraft accidents are paralysis, brain injury, spinal cord injuries, herniated and ruptured discs, fractures, knee injuries, and death.

Recovering Damages from a Boating Accident

Boating accident victims may recover for pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage, lost wages and loss of earning capacity due to the negligence of another boater.

When operating a boat or personal watercraft, each boat owner and operator has a duty to exercise the highest degree of caution and care in order to avoid injuries that could result in death.

Any personal injury that occurs on or within a boat, ship, personal watercraft, or ferry is considered a boating accident and can be caused by reckless driving, drunk driving, boat malfunctions, defective equipment or inexperienced operators.
