Have You Been Hurt in a Boating Accident?
If you were having the perfect day boating in the Austin summer sun, relaxing on the cool waters of Lake Travis, you probably never dreamed a boating accident would ruin your day.
But it did, and not only your day, but the months to follow.
Catastrophic injuries a daily occurrence for us, but they are not in the lives of our clients. We work very, very hard to never forget that and always remember we are dealing with people going through the worst thing in their life.Carl R.Barry
If you or a loved one was the victim of a boating accident, stop letting that one day cause pain for years to come by contacting the Barry Law Group.
The Barry Law Group Has Dealt with Several Causes of Boating Accidents
If you have one of the more than 500,000 registered water crafts in Texas, you may understand how there are hundreds of water accidents annually in Texas. It is also probably not surprising to you that in 50 percent of boating accidents, alcohol has been a contributor.
It makes sense that people would want to drink, relax and play around while on the waters, but as you have seen first-hand through your pain, irresponsible and inattentive boating is not fun if it caused an injury to you or the drowning of a loved one.
The boating accident that harmed you or a loved one may have been a result of alcohol or one of the following causes listed below:
- Careless or reckless boat driving
- Operator inattention
- No spotter or lookout
- Operator inexperience
- Passenger recklessness
- Boat equipment failure
If your injury stemmed from any of these causes you have the right to contact an experienced personal injury attorney like those at the Barry Law Group to get the compensation you are entitled to.
