Boating Accident Lawyer

Austin residents enjoy the benefits of a great climate and many sunny days on Lake Travis or one of the Highland Lakes, enjoying boating, swimming, and jet skis. Unfortunately, we are also susceptible to boating accidents.

Boat and watercraft operators have a legal obligation to use their vehicles safely. If your boating accident was caused by negligent behavior on the part of a watercraft operator, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and other damages.

Mark Hefter has helped many clients injured in boating, water skiing, wake boarding and other recreational watercraft accidents seek the compensation they need to move forward after a boating accident and the resulting injuries that come from negligence on the water.

There are also situations where an accident isn’t the operator’s fault; rather, it’s a product liability issue – and the responsibility lies with the manufacturer to correct the problem. Mark Hefter will thoroughly investigate your boating accident claim, and then assign liability to those responsible – and always work as a respected advocate who has only your best interests at heart.
