Boat Accidents in Texas
In 2018, hundreds of boating accidents happened throughout Texas, and 29 people lost their lives as a result of these collisions. Even though boats don’t travel at as high of speeds as vehicles, they are still dangerous since they don’t have brakes, seat belts, airbags, and other safety components. Therefore, whenever accidents occur, pilots and passengers often eject into the water and sustain serious injuries as a result. Like any other accident, boat accidents can be avoided, which means those involved could file personal injury lawsuits.
