Boat Accidents

Austin Boat Accident Lawyer

Representing Victims in Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake & Lake Walter E. Long

Residents of Austin, Texas have access to many recreational parks and lakes, including Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake, and Lake Walter E. Long. In addition to enforcing the Texas Water Safety Act, Austin has established several city ordinances to ensure the safety of individuals and families who want to enjoy the public resources that the city's beautiful lakes offer. When an inexperienced, negligent, or drunk boat operator fails to adhere to these ordinances, serious accidents can occur.

Our firm has the experience and knowledge that is needed to pursue a satisfactory outcome for you. When someone else's negligent behavior has cost you unreasonable damages, you can rest assured that we can do everything in our ethical power to seek justice as if your case were our very own.

Causes of Boat-Related Accidents

Many individuals expect to spend a day on the water without worry. When individuals forget to operate any type of watercraft with care and consideration for other people in the water, the results could be devastating and life changing.

Common causes of boating collisions include:

  • Boating under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or controlled substances
  • Distracted operators
  • Inexperienced operators failing to maneuver safely or respond quickly
  • Malfunction or defect in a boating part, such as propeller failure
  • Speeding or reckless operation
  • Overcrowded boats, leading to passengers falling overboard or boats capsizing or overturning

If your accident was caused by someone else's negligence, you could have the right to collect compensation for the damages that the reckless person caused. Our seasoned litigator is ready to represent you through every stage of your case and inform you of your legal options, entitlements, and rights. By understanding what you are up against, the legal process can become much less intimidating, and you can begin to make more empowered decisions toward recovery.
