Are Boat Accidents Common in Austin?

Boat accidents, while not an everyday occurrence in Austin, aren’t unheard of given the city’s proximity to bodies of water such as Lake Austin and Lady Bird Lake. The frequency of these incidents can fluctuate based on a variety of factors, including weather conditions, boat traffic, and adherence to safety protocols.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard’s recreational boating statistics, Texas ranks high among states with the most boating accidents. However, it’s important to note that this data includes the entire state, not just Austin.

While specific statistics for Austin alone are not readily available, it’s safe to say that as long as there is boating activity, the potential for accidents exists. Therefore, boat operators and passengers must adhere to safety guidelines, be aware of their surroundings, and use caution while on the water to minimize the risk of accidents.

Common Injuries in Boating Accidents

Boating accidents can lead to a variety of injuries, some of which can be especially severe. Common injuries include fractures and broken bones, often resulting from collisions or falls, and the medical costs can range from $2,500 to $16,000, depending on the severity and location of the fracture. Head injuries, including concussions, are also common in boating accidents, with treatment costs potentially reaching up to $100,000 for traumatic brain injuries.

Drowning or near-drowning incidents can lead to significant neurological damage due to lack of oxygen, and the medical treatment for such injuries could get as high as, or even exceed, $1 million in specialized care and ongoing rehabilitation. Additionally, cuts and lacerations from propellers or debris can lead to infections or scarring, with treatment costs ranging from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.

At The Law Office of Will Mitchell, we understand the toll that these injuries can take, both physically and financially. By meticulously analyzing your case and the circumstances surrounding the accident, our team can work to build a compelling case for damages.

    Well what can I say that everyone else hasn’t said?! Very glad to have found Will Mitchell. Will and his staff are highly professional and will handle your case promptly and efficiently. Mitchell knows the system and how to guide you through it all.

  • "I can't say enough amazing things about Will Mitchell."
    I can't say enough amazing things about Will Mitchell. My case was dismissed (I didn't think we had a shot) and now just signed a petition for it to be removed for good. I'm typically a little over-amped with my thoughts in general, and he was very responsive and always had calming things to say! I felt I could reach him regarding any little question, and he was always happy to help. I'm still blown away that he was able to get the DWI dismissed, and now off my record. He's a fantastic lawyer, and I'm so happy I chose him!

  • "Will has saved my life!"
    Will has saved my life! I was moving to Virginia on a probation transfer to be with my fiancé and because of Will I was able to make it happen, he responded to all my calls when I was freaking out and assured me exactly what he could do which made me calm plus he did exactly what he said he would, you don’t understand how much I appreciate you, Will!

  • "He’s amazing, choose him."
    Will was the BEST choice that I could’ve made after my DWI. I was so scared, it was my first arrest and I felt extremely overwhelmed when it came to finding a lawyer. I met with large corporations thinking maybe with the resources they would be a better option. At the end of every conversation, I felt that Will had my best interest and was very honest. He is also a very friendly guy, I never felt judged, I was more of his friend. At the end of the day, all the warm feels are nice. But, he also got my case COMPLETELY dropped. No probation & no travel restrictions. He changed my life in a way that no Google review can capture. He’s amazing, choose him.
