Maritime Law in Texas
Boating enthusiasts abound in Texas. Unfortunately, there are many recreational boating accidents each year, with some resulting in fatalities and serious injuries. The majority of deaths from these boating accidents are due to drowning from boats capsizing or accidental falls overboard. And in a majority of cases, the people who drowned are not wearing life jackets.
Boat owners are responsible for protecting their crews and passengers by requiring passengers to wear life preservation equipment. Boat operators are often inexperienced, inattentive to security protocols, or reckless when operating their crafts. Sometimes they are operating the crafts at an unsafe speeds, or they may allow their crafts to become overcrowded. To make matters worse, boat operators that consume alcohol or narcotics while operating their crafts will increase the likelihood for injury.
