Common Causes of Boating Accidents in Texas
Though you may operate your boat according to all safety standards and laws, this does not necessarily mean that others will. Driver negligence is among one of the leading causes of boating injuries, specifically citing accidents caused by Boating Under the Influence (BUI). Like driving under the influence, BUIs are considered to be illegal and can jeopardize the lives of passengers and other boaters.
In addition to BUI, boating accidents are frequently caused by other forms of negligence:
- Operating while distracted
- Reckless operating, such as speeding, swerving, or following closely by other boats
- Defective products or faulty machinery
- Lack of safety maintenance
- Overloading, leading to overturn or passenger overboard
- Inexperienced or improperly trained operators
Whether you need to take legal action against another reckless driver or are looking to take legal action against a negligent product manufacturer, our San Antonio boating accident attorneys are here to help. As a former defense lawyer, John Daspit has had extensive experience taking on corporate cases of all sizes and complexities. Today, Mr. Daspit uses his unique insight on the law to create compelling and persuasive cases on behalf of his clients.
