Boating Accidents in Texas

Dallas Injury Lawyer Helps Determine Fault

The Dallas area is surrounded by lakes, and residents beat the Texas heat by venturing to the water and engaging in water sports. In order to keep people safe, the state of Texas has implemented numerous laws to keep boaters, skiers and swimmers free from harm; however, some boat operators have blatant disregard for the safety of fellow recreational lake-goers and may cause serious accidents and injuries.

If you or a loved one has been hurt because of a negligent boat driver, you may be eligible to retain compensation for your injuries. At Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP, our team of dedicated Dallas personal injury attorneys stands ready to provide you with assistance you need to hold the negligent party accountable.

There are many reasons why boating accidents may occur, but the majority of the accidents are caused by drunk boat operators. In the warm Texas summers, alcohol, dehydration and the sun's heat may subject numerous drivers to operating their boats while intoxicated. Intoxicated drivers may fail to handle their boats in a safe manner, causing collisions, run-aground accidents and the threat of hitting swimmers in the water. When a skier or wake boarder falls, an orange flag is flown to notify boats in the area of the risk of hitting a swimmer in the water — a negligent boat operator may fail to see this flag and hit swimmers or skiers, causing serious accidents and injuries and sometimes causing death.
