Houston Boat Accident Attorneys
Experienced Representation & Personalized Attention
It’s not always smooth sailing when it comes to boating for pleasure. Boating accidents and the resulting injuries are often due to negligence on the part of the boat’s owner or the operator of another craft. Unlike car owners and drivers, most boaters are not required to carry insurance. This means you may need to seek alternate means of compensation in an accident. With years of experience in the courtroom, our lawyers are ready to fight for you and set you on the road to recovery.

When Do You Need a Boat Accident Attorney?
Boats can be just as dangerous as cars, yet anyone over the age of 13 who has completed a one-time education course can operate one. Further, boaters born prior to September 1, 1993 are not required to complete the safety certification, so many older boaters may not be aware of safe boating practices.
Boating accidents due to the negligence of others may include:
- Collision of two boats
- Hitting the wake of another boat
- Hitting a wave
- Colliding with the land, a submerged rock, or another object
- Lack of required safety equipment on board
Injuries sustained from these types of accidents can range from minor to devastating. Because boaters may not carry insurance, a knowledgeable boat accident attorney in Texas can provide counsel and advocate for you to help you recover the compensation you deserve. McLaurin Dinneen, PLLC is highly capable of handling these complex cases. We are licensed to practice in Texas and Louisiana, so we can represent you for accidents taking place in Lake Houston, Galveston Bay, or even the Gulf of Mexico.
