I grew up in Tyler in the Chapel Hill area near Lake Tyler so I have memories of weekends on Lake Tyler with my family as a child. My husband, children and I enjoy camping, fishing and boating so we spend time out on the water now when we have the chance. While most people obey the rules of the water, accidents still happen and can cause serious injuries or even death. I am familiar with the Texas laws regarding boating accidents. As well as the U.S. Coast Guard’s Navigation Rules that govern all facets of boating and boating safety.
The major causes of recreational boating accidents are operator inattention, careless/reckless boat operation, excessive speed, and boating while intoxicated. These negligent acts and others cause boats to capsize or collide. They may result in flooding, fire and explosion and more often than not severe injuries. When boaters are negligent and reckless, passengers may fall overboard and can be struck by the propeller. From time to time, negligently designed boats and defective boating equipment can also cause accidents which give rise to claims against manufacturers, which would be considered product liability claims. As with other accidents it is important that you speak to a Tyler Boat Accident Lawyer as soon as possible to learn your rights and make sure witnesses statements and other evidence are preserved.
