Many people in Austin take advantage of the nearby lakes and rivers during the warmer months. Boats are a popular way for people to enjoy being on the water, and as such, those operating boats must ensure they do not pose a danger to others. Though boating accidents are mostly avoidable, when they do happen, they can have devastating results.
If you have been injured in a boating accident caused by another person’s carelessness, you could be eligible to receive compensation from the responsible party by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Compensation often helps victims cover the cost of medical bills and other expenses related to their injuries. Our Austin personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., help residents navigate the legal complications that arise when boating accidents occur.
WHY DO BOATING ACCIDENTS OCCUR?
Though boating accidents are often caused by the negligence of the operator, they are not limited to operator error. Boating accidents commonly occur for the following reasons:
- Boating while intoxicated
- Reckless driving
- Boat defect / malfunction
- Stationary object collisions
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
