Boating Accidents

Houston, Texas Boating Accident Lawyers

Operators of boats, jet skis and sail boats can be held financially liable for accidents caused by their negligence or drunk driving. If someone drowns due to a lack of life preservers or is injured in an on-board fire, a boat owner can be held responsible for the injuries or fatalities that result. Under Texas dram shop laws, in cases involving "boating under the influence (BUI)," marinas, bars and other establishments can be held liable if it can be proven that a boat's operator was served alcohol while visibly intoxicated. We also represent clients who have been injured as a result of defective boat parts.

Boating Accidents Caused by Drunk Driving or Negligence

At our law office in Friendswood, Texas, our attorneys work with investigators to determine why a boating accident happened and what should have been done to prevent it. In BUI cases, we review credit card statements, tabs and restaurant bills to determine how much alcohol someone was served and over what amount of time. We have the investigative resources and knowledge needed to expose negligence and violations of the law in boating accidents.

Boating Injuries Caused by Defective Boats and Boat Parts

Our product liability attorneys also seek compensation for people who have been injured as a result of poorly designed or dangerous boats and boat parts. Many people have been seriously injured due to defective boat seats, unguarded boat propellers and other unsafe boat parts. We work hard to hold the designers, manufacturers and sellers of defective products accountable for the deaths and injuries which are caused by their carelessness.
