Causes of Boating Accidents
Texas boating laws are intended to keep boat operators and their passengers safe and minimize the risk for accidents. The boating laws managed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department include required trainings, licenses, and safety gear for vessels. Failing to comply with these laws can result in penalties, fines, or even potentially cause boating accidents. Boat operators can also cause boating accidents by speeding, aggressively or recklessly driving, or by operating the vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
No matter the cause of the accident, be sure to file a report with the police and / or Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as soon as possible, especially if medical treatment requires more than first aid or the accident causes major property damage.
