Boat Accidents

Were You Injured in a Boating Accident in Galveston?

Advocating on Behalf of Victims Throughout Texas

Living in Galveston, Texas can be ideal for many reasons. In addition to the endless entertainment and lifestyle options, residents have a wide range of boating opportunities. From the West and East Bays to the prominent Galveston Bay, the abundance of water-oriented recreational activities are seemingly endless. Unfortunately, many inexperienced boat operators are unaware that taking charge of the wheel behind a boat will require the same amount of attention, precision, and care as a car or other vehicle.

Boating-related injuries and deaths are on the rise, especially in the Galveston area. Though some boating injuries and incidents may be caused by operators, other accidents can be caused by technical issues. If you have suffered any type of injury due to a boating-related accident, you must speak with the Galveston personal injury lawyers at The Daspit Law Firm. We know how to protect your rights at this time.

How Negligence Impacts Your Claim

Operating a boat requires adhere to serious ordinances established by the city and state of Texas. Failing to adhere to these regulations could cause serious, if not deadly, injuries. If your injuries have been caused by no fault of your own, an experienced lawyer can pursue compensation according to the extent of the injuries you have sustained.

Common examples of negligence include:

  • Improper supervision or operation of vessel
  • Boating under the influence (BUI)
  • Distraction and inattention
  • Speeding and reckless operation
  • Passengers falling overboard due to overcrowding
  • Lack of safety equipment or life-saving techniques
  • Equipment defect, resulting in propeller failure, explosion, capsizing, or sinking

As experienced lawyers, we know how to accurately assess an accident. Whether your accident occurred on a privately owned boat or a commercial boat, do not neglect your opportunity to maximize your compensation after an accident. Failing to act with a skilled legal professional could cause you to be undercompensated, which may prolong pain, aggravate physical injuries, or increase financial burdens.
