Injured in an accident caused by a negligent boater?
Texas boasts the most square mileage of inland water in the United States and is ranked 6th in the country among the states with the greatest number of registered boats. With the popularity of boating comes a necessity for boater education and responsibility that often goes neglected. If you were injured in a boating accident due to the negligence of another driver, our Beaumont injury lawyers at Brasher Law Firm, PLLC can help you seek the level of compensation that you deserve.
Whether you were injured in a motorboat or on a cruise ship, our team of attorneys can face liable parties with the aggression your case needs.

Additionally, he was named to the list of Top 100 Trial Lawyers and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. These accolades reflect a successful career of fighting for the rights of clients who have suffered injuries at the hands of another’s negligence.
Common Causes of Boat Accidents
The environment of boating is extremely dangerous, which is why there are a number of necessary precautions for maintaining the safety of operators and passengers. When these precautions aren’t taken, even the smallest of accidents can have deadly consequences.
Common causes of boat accidents include:
- Boater’s lack of experience
- Inattentive or negligent drivers
- Inadequate lookout for other boaters, swimmers, or obstructions
- Excessive speeding
- Failure of machinery
- Inebriation while operating
If you were the passenger of a boat that was operated by a negligent or reckless driver, or if you were involved in an accident with another boat, you have the right to take action. Our Beaumont personal injury attorneys can help you navigate the legal processes you need to hold liable parties accountable for their costly mistakes. If you lost a loved one to a tragic boating accident, pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible can help you find the justice and peace of mind you need to begin the process of healing

I was scared to death after being on the witness stand for several hours. Clint Brasher kept reassuring me but, when we broke the trial for the day and I was offered $100,000.00, I wanted to take it. Clint advised me not to and that we would do better with the jury. While it was hard, I followed his advice. The verdict the next day was for $240,000.00 plus interest. I recommend anyone with a legal problem to call Clint Brasher. He was not only a skillful advocate, he was a friend to me during this difficult time.Edward Arabie
After being told by multiple lawyers that I really had no case or that my chances of being awarded any settlement was very slim, I was referred to the Brasher Law firm. Nishi worked on my case and with very little effort on my part, she put together my case with an opening statement and presentation that put my opponent on their heels. She set a goal from the start and didn’t relent until her goal was met and I got what was owed me. Thank you Nishi for knocking it out of the park!L. Smith
