Lakes, rivers, and Gulf Coast waters are dangerous elements. Tides and currents are unpredictable. In many cases, it is not the accident or collision that causes injury or death, but rather what happens after the accident that causes the real damage. People are pulled under by the current and suffer brain damage from lack of oxygen or worse — they drown. People jumping into the water to escape a boat fire may dive into shallow water and suffer spinal cord injury. Or, accident survivors don’t flee the area fast enough and are too close when the engine explodes — resulting in burn injuries or death.
The boating accident attorneys at the Villarreal Law Firm use our skills and resources to properly investigate the cause of the accident as well as the injuries so that we can properly determine liability. As a result, we are capable of recovering rightful compensation on our client’s behalf. Call us today for your free consultation; (956) 544-4444
