Boat Accidents in Texas
Every year, more than 17,500 people are seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents throughout the state of Texas. Accidents involving boats, jet skis, and other watercraft often result in serious injuries for those involved. In many cases, victims require hospitalization and extensive medical treatment for their injuries. Thousands of people are left permanently impaired as a result of their injuries and are forced to deal with ongoing pain and suffering.
Here in Texas, a large percentage of boating accidents are caused by driver negligence. When drivers are distracted, impaired, or engaged in other reckless activities, accidents are more likely to occur. Boat accidents not only leave victims to deal with mental and physical consequences, but the financial impacts of lost wages, medical treatment, and vehicle repairs often extend to the entire family of each victim.
Not only are victims forced to suffer from completely preventable accidents, but the consequences are often far-reaching and expansive. In order to combat the issues victims face moving forward, courts in Texas allow some victims to file legal claims against at-fault drivers to recover compensation. In cases where victims sustain injuries in accidents caused by the negligence of others, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a knowledgeable South Texas boat accident attorney at their earliest convenience.
