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, McLaurin Law is ready to fight for you and set you on the road to recovery.
Contact McLaurin Law to find out how we can help you with your boating accident case.
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:
Injuries sustained from these types of accidents can range from minor to devastating.

We respect your privacy. The information you provide will be used to answer your question or to schedule an appointment if requested.
Typically, the answer to this is absolutely not. Insurance companies are looking out for their own best interests and will try to get you to settle for an offer that is far below what you deserve. At McLaurin Law, we can help you seek an appropriate settlement.
After an accident, you should typically file a claim with the insurance provider of the negligent party who is responsible for your accident. It is important that you move with haste in filing a personal injury claim with the insurance carrier after an injury has occurred. Should a lawsuit eventually become necessary, it is also important to keep in mind that in the state of Texas, you must file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the date the injury occurred.
Your number one priority should be your well-being. Seek out medical advice as soon as possible to ensure that you get the treatment you need. You should also move quickly to consult with an attorney to assist you with your personal injury claim. Critical events occur early in the personal injury claims process—such as interviews with adjusters and early damages assessments—so do not delay speaking with an attorney.
