Boating accidents usually result in severe injuries and sometimes death. Boating accidents are more complex than automobile accidents; therefore, it is wise to contact an injury attorney immediately to know your rights. Overlapping insurance coverage, subrogation, comparative responsibility and uninsured boaters are common issues in these cases. Generally, the applicable law surrounding Boating accidents includes negligence, gross negligence, negligence per se, strict products liability and Texas Workers’ Compensation law.
Insurance companies today, aggressively investigate accidents and it is not that uncommon for them to call injured victims at their homes trying to get recorded statements about the extent of their injuries. Some insurance companies even go so far as to send adjusters to the home of injured victims to get a recorded statement in person, take pictures of the injuries and offer small amounts of money to settle the case. This is done to gain an unfair advantage before the injured person has a chance to consult with an attorney.
