Boating accidents can cause terrible personal injuries and wrongful death. The lack of regulation and licensing allows many inexperienced and young people to get behind the controls of a boat. Even more than automobiles, alcohol consumption is more and more commonplace in a pleasure watercraft. This combination results in horrific injuries for passengers, swimmers and other boaters. If you need an experienced personal injury trial law specialist to assist you following a boating accident, contact Michael P. Fleming or the other Houston injury lawyers at Michael P.

The boat accident injury lawyers at Michael P. Fleming & Associates accept all forms of watercraft injury cases including those involving power boats, jet skis, wave runners, water ski boats and others. Boat accidents can be caused by a variety of factors including:
- Excessive Speed
- Inadequate Supervision
- Violation of Regulations
Many times, boating accidents are caused by an intoxicated operator. Not only is it illegal to operate a boat while intoxicated, the injuries inflicted in a crash can cause devastating injuries and death. This can also result in the demand and award of punitive damages as in a DWI accident. Often, the owner of the boat can be liable for the negligent actions of the operator if they negligently entrust the boat to another person.
