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.

Clients Are Saying

  • Thank you so much Daspit!!

    “Thank you so much Daspit!! You made the accident that I was in not so traumatizing. When I was hit by a person who was not from Houston and did not know downtown well he at first was sorry and admitted it was his fault until the cops showed up. From that point on I was in a panic until I entered your office and you guided me through.I recommend Daspit to anyone who wants to be treated with compassion and needs true guidance through the law.”

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
