Just How Dangerous Are Boating Accidents?

  • There were more than 200 boating accidents in 2013 alone

  • There were over 200 arrests for BUI in Texas in the year 2013

We Can Investigate the Cause of Your Boating Accident

Waterways can be dangerous places, especially when there are inexperienced or negligent drivers out on the water. Our Austin personal injury lawyer puts an emphasis on investigation in order to analyze the factors that led to your accident. Working with accident reconstruction experts, we will demonstrate the role negligence played in your accident.

Negligent boating practices that often lead to accidents include:

  • Boating under the influence (BUI)
  • Driving recklessly / above the speed limit
  • Failing to watch out for personal watercrafts
  • Operating a boat without proper training
  • Not having a proper spotter or lookout

Jet Skis and other personal watercraft are popular recreational vehicles because anybody can drive them. Unfortunately, that also makes them extremely dangerous. If you were injured in a Jet Ski accident, that negligent driver should be held accountable. If your accident was caused by a faulty or defective part, we can also help with your recovery.
