Some of the same factors involved in car or truck accidents are often apparent in results of an investigation of a boating accident. Some examples of causes of boating wrecks in South Texas include:
- Inexperience, recklessness or aggression of boat operators
- Inebriation of boat operators (drunk boating or operating a boat under the influence of drugs or alcohol)
- Congestion in boating areas of lakes, river and gulf waters
- Encounters between boats and people in the water: swimmers, water skiers or personal watercraft operators
- Collisions of two or more boats
- Capsizing of boats
- Collisions of boats with stationary objects such as bridges, piers or trees
- Boating in or around dangerous water features or conditions, such as whirlpools, choppy waves, waterfalls or dams
Determining the cause of a boat wreck is a critical part of a successful investigation leading to an injury claim or lawsuit. Equally important is uncovering information about insurance coverage of any person or organization involved. The owner of a dock, the owner of a pontoon boat, tour boat or motorboat and the operator of a boat are examples of potentially liable parties in a boating wreck case.
