More About Texas Boating Accidents
Boating accidents can be the result of faulty equipment or operator negligence. Operators of boats have a legal obligation to operate their watercraft in a legal and safe manner. Most often, accidents are caused by operator inattention, operator inexperience, excessive speed, alcohol, distracting or inappropriate passenger behavior, or a failure to keep a proper lookout.
All of these acts on a moving boat can cause a collision that may result in flooding, sinking, fire, explosion, serious injury to the boat’s passengers, and injury to people in the water. Even boating accident injuries that appear minor should not be overlooked, as they can cause continued pain, future injuries, and financial loss. Whatever the cause of the accident, an experienced personal injury attorney can stand up for your rights.
It is not uncommon for poorly designed boats and equipment to cause serious injury or wrongful death. You purchased your boat or boating equipment under the assumption that it was safe and had been approved for its intended use. When injury or wrongful death occurs due to a faulty piece of boat equipment, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer.
Your injuries suffered from a boating accident, whether attributed to faulty equipment or another person’s negligence, should not be overlooked. You should not have to pay the medical bills if your boating accident injuries were caused by the carelessness of another. If you think you may have a claim, please do not hesitate to contact our office today.
