Most Boating Accidents Are Caused By Negligence
If negligence caused your boating accident in Houston, you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person or party at fault. Negligence in personal injury law is the failure to use a normal or adequate amount of care, resulting in harm to others. Boating accidents are often preventable and stem from acts of negligence, such as:
Poor boat or watercraft maintenance
Equipment or part failures
An inexperienced or unlicensed boat operator
Boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Speeding or reckless boating
Breaking waterway rules or ignoring signs
Failing to keep a proper lookout
Colliding with other boats, vessels or docks
Failing to check the weather and water conditions before embarking
Failing to keep proper safety gear onboard
It is a boat operator’s responsibility to pay attention to the task at hand, obey all relevant state and local boating laws, and keep passengers reasonably safe. Boat owners and manufacturers also have safety-related responsibilities, such as keeping a boat in proper working condition. If anyone breaches or violates a duty of care in connection to a boating accident in Houston, that party can be held financially responsible.
