Alcohol is Often a Factor in Recreational Boat Accidents Around Austin
All too often, our law firm learns of accidental injuries and deaths involving high-speed motorboats, alcohol and carelessness. People on the lakes in and around Austin sometimes forget common-sense safety guidelines.
Boaters may not realize — or do not take time to consider — that boating while intoxicated is just as hazardous and just as wrong as drunk driving. There are laws against operating a boat while drunk. People who ignored these laws are acting with clear negligence. Intoxicated boaters may face DUI charges as well as civil liability when their actions cause injury or death to others.
Serious injuries, including broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and fatal injuries are common consequences of boat accidents. Our personal injury law firm offers information, advice and help to people who have suffered serious injuries or lost loved ones in fatal accidents in and on bodies of water in the Austin area and beyond.
