Boating Accident Cases Our Houston Attorneys Handle
Boating accidents can lead to severe and even fatal consequences. When hiring an attorney, you need to make sure they are experienced and highly-trained. Here we've laid out a few of the cases our team has handled.
- Boater Negligence: Actions that constitute boater negligence can include, but are not limited to:
- Not having safety equipment on board
- Colliding with other boats or object(s) in the water
- Overcrowding or loading the vessel past its capacity
- Boating Under the Influence: It’s illegal to operate a boat while intoxicated or under the influence of illegal substances. According to data collected by the U.S. Coast Guard, Texas was among the top five states for boating accidents involving alcohol use in 2019.
