Boating Accidents Can Cause Life-Changing Injuries
Enjoying the sunshine and water while on a boat is usually a great experience. Boating is not always safe, however. In fact, Lake Travis is commonly referred to as “the most dangerous lake” in Texas.
When a boating accident happens, the result can be devastating. Batrice Law Firm often works with parents who have lost children, individuals who are struggling to return to normal life and others facing the costs of boat accidents. We know how important your case is to you. Our lead attorney, Paul Batrice, will work to protect your interests.
Boaters Must Be As Responsible As Drivers
Like driving a car on the road, driving a boat requires obedience of the law and attention to safety. Boating accidents can include boat collisions and boat versus person accidents.
Causes of these accidents can include:
- Abrupt stops
- Hitting a wake at excessive speeds
- Boating in the darkness or in poor weather conditions
- Reckless boating
- Drugs or alcohol intoxication while operating a boat
The consequences of a boat accident range in severity and type. Serious propeller injuries, amputation and death are just a few possible results of a boating accident.
If you or your family member suffered major injuries, we can help you seek fair compensation. Through a personal injury claim or lawsuit, Paul Batrice is ready to guide you forward. With integrity and extensive trial experience, our attorney will prioritize your needs.
