Common Causes For A Boat Accident

 A Jet Ski, also known as a “sea doo” or “sea-doo” can travel a fast rate of speed and the driver may plow into a group of swimmers while looking in another direction. Catching a swimmer or skier in a boat’s propeller can be lethal. Boating while intoxicated is as dangerous as DWI on the road. Inexperience, inattention, alcohol cause a boat accident. Boats, ski boats, Jet Skis, Sea doo’s, and other watercraft offer opportunities for fun on the waters around Galveston, Clear Lake, Kemah, and the Texas Gulf coast. They can also lead to accidents with serious injuries from people operating boats or personal watercraft being negligence or may fail to properly navigate around others, or are not expecting water traffic causing the driver to be unable to respond within time. Talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer about your boat accident and injuries. Typical types boat accidents  include:
  • People falling or being ejected from the boat,
  • The boat capsizing or sinking,
  • Having the boat be flooded or swamping,
