Recreational Boating Accidents – Free Consultation Available 24/7

In Texas and across the United States, boaters and jet ski operators often find themselves becoming the victims of other boaters’ reckless behavior or negligent repair and maintenance practices can lead to avoidable injuries and property damage. It is not uncommon for many drivers to be without a proper drivers’ license required to operate a boat. As a result, boating accidents occur all too frequently throughout the state of Texas, involving both tourists and residents.

Based on a recent study completed by the United States Coast Guard, the top five types of recreational boating accidents are:

Collisions with other recreational boats

Flooding and swamping

Collisions with fixed objects

Grounding

Skier mishaps

The same Coast Guard study found that the five most common causes of recreational boating accidents were:

Operator inattention

Improper lookout;

Operator inexperience;

Speeding; and

Alcohol use

What A Boating Accident Attorney Can Do For You

Legal claims involving water accidents can involve complex legal and technical issues.

The liability rules also differ in some ways from those that govern car owners or tour bus operators.
