Boating Accidents in Houston, Texas

It is not surprising that boating is a popular pastime enjoyed by many in Texas. Texas has hundreds of miles of coastline and more inland waterways than any other state. There are hundreds of thousands of registered boats in Texas, but unfortunately Texas also ranks in the top five in boating accident deaths.

Wearing a life jacket, keeping your boat in good repair and staying sober while operating your boat are important to the safe and enjoyable operation of your watercraft. If you do have a boating accident however, it is important to help any injured first, and report the accident to the proper authorities.

Boating accidents can also occur to those who work on and around boats and offshore rigs. Injuries sustained under these circumstances can include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, crushing injuries and even death.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a boating accident in Houston or the surrounding area, the boating accident attorneys at The Cochran Firm can investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine if you are eligible for financial compensation for your medical bills, property damage, loss of income and pain and suffering.
