HOUSTON BOAT ACCIDENT LAWYER
In Texas, hundreds of people are injured and many people are killed each
year in boating accidents. The injuries and deaths are caused from boat
crashes, water ski accidents, jet ski wrecks, and on cruise ships. Many of
these accidents are caused due to the negligence of the watercraft operator,
such as reckless driving, operator inexperience, failure to pay attention,
or boating while intoxicated.
Alcohol or drug consumption is the cause of many boating accidents. In
fact, alcohol plays a role in 50% of all boating accidents. Boating while
intoxicated is not only dangerous but it is also illegal. It is punishable
by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000 or both. Additionally,
the person's drivers' license may be suspended.
