A Boating Accident Lawyer Can Help With Serious Injuries, Drowning and More
Boating accidents cause serious injuries and millions of dollars worth of damage every year across the country. In 2011, there were 4,588 boating accidents involving 758 deaths, 3,081 injuries and more than $52 million dollars worth of damage to property, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
Experienced Galveston boating accident attorneys know first-hand how serious boating accidents can be for families. At the Law Offices of Gene S. Hagood, we have been fighting for the rights of injury victims throughout Texas for more than 30 years.
Boating accidents can involve a wide range of injuries and accidents. Sometimes, people hurt themselves in slip and fall accidents on a boat or dock. In such cases, all different types of severe injuries are possible, including traumatic brain injury. Other times, people are seriously injured or die in drowning accidents in the Gulf of Mexico or in a lake or stream near Galveston or Houston.
A boating accident may involve a motorboat, sailboat or a jet ski or other watercraft. Just like a driver of a car can be charged with DUI, an operator of a boat can be charged with drunk driving and be held accountable for any injuries or deaths that occur in a boat accident.
