McAllen Boating Accident Attorney

Boating is a popular and widespread form of recreation throughout the state of Texas, and many of the state's lakes and beaches are frequented by thousands of boaters each year. A fair amount of these boaters are either improperly trained or carelessly underestimate the dangers of boating. As a result, many boaters frequently exhibit unsafe and negligent boating behaviors, some of which include:

  • Boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Unsafe speeds
  • Boating by unlicensed and improperly trained operators
  • Reckless and aggressive boating

While defective boat parts and product liability may be a factor in some boating accidents, an overwhelming majority of them are caused by boat operator error, negligence or carelessness. An increasingly large percentage of them are caused by drunk boaters. The threats they pose to others on the water are serious, and they must be held responsible for the danger that their negligent actions create.

Boat Accident Victims and Compensation

Victims injured by negligent boat operators can file personal injury claims that can allow them to recover any physical, emotional and financial damages they suffered. Successful claims depend on a strong presentation of liability, which may be difficult in boating accident cases that do not have witnesses. Familiar with the Texas boating laws and with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's procedures that require boaters to report injury causing accidents in a timely manner, our firm can ensure that your claim is as strong as possible.
