Boating Accidents & Their Causes
Approximately 11.9 million recreational boats were registered in the U.S. in 2018, according to the Coast Guard. That year, 633 people were killed and 2,511 were injured in 4,145 accidents. Of all boating accident fatalities, drowning was the cause of death 77% of the time (where cause of death was known).
The U.S. Coast Guard lists the following as the five most common causes of boating accidents:
- Operator inattention
- Improper lookout
- Operator inexperience
- Machinery failure
No Firm Knows Boating Laws Like We Do
Most boat accidents, like other vehicle accidents, occur because a person or company was negligent. This means that they failed to exercise a proper amount of care in the circumstances. Although their intention may not have been to cause an accident, they can still be held legally responsible.
Our Dallas boat accident attorneys know precisely how personal injury, wrongful death, workers’ compensation, and maritime laws apply to these accidents—and we know how to use this knowledge to benefit our clients. These cases can be extremely complicated, but we never hesitate to put in the work it takes to secure the best result for every client we represent.
We help people who have been injured or have lost loved ones in accidents on or involving:
- Fishing boats
- Ski boats
- Waterboard boats
- Jet boats
- Personal watercraft
We also help injured seamen who have been injured in offshore accidents.
When a day out on a boat turns into a painful experience, we step in to help people demand the justice they deserve. Find out how our Dallas boating accident lawyers help clients at no cost by calling us at (888) 493-1629.
