Unskilled, Inexperienced Operators Can Cause Boating Accidents
The Statistics Reveal Disturbing Data
According to statistics gathered during a recent 5-year period by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard, the total number of boating accidents that occurred in Texas was almost 1,000. And of those accidents, approximately 200 people died as a result.
While drivers of automobiles are required to have a license to operate the vehicle, undergoing rigorous written and on-the-road tests to prove adequate skills, no such requirements exist for boat operators in Texas. Although there are laws regulating the age of boat operators, as well as banned levels of intoxication, exemptions for some of the prevailing rules far outnumber the requirements. This makes it quite easy to take the helm of a boat and possibly put others at risk if skills are less than optimal.

The dangers associated with boating can be numerous considering the probability of turbulent weather conditions; insufficient knowledge of boating etiquette; errors in judgment; inadequate experience; unsupervised operation by an underaged operator; and other factors which may be attributable to operator or owner negligence.
Only a skilled attorney can sort through the various facts which have affected a boating accident and determine whether a claim can be made for personal injuries or fatalities.

Great attorney and staff!
In December 2012 I was in a very bad accident. My mother’s car was totaled and I did not have a lawyer at the time. After the accident I was referred to a lawyer by a friend and the process was very slow and not professional. I dropped that lawyer and hired Mr. Gordon. Mr. Gordon helped my mother get paid for her car and helped close my injury case. The overall experience with Mr. Gordon and his firm was very professional. Everything in my case moved quickly and in an orderly manner.
As populated as our city is..accidents, sometimes are inevitable. It’s during those times, when you need someone you can trust the most. Therefore, for the past 10+ years and the few accidents my family and I have been involved in, we all go to Mr. Joel Gordon. Not only is he professional, but also friendly and compassionate towards your situation and guides with the heart, not the #’s (un-like some out there).?
I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. Joel Gordon was never hard to reach and always had an answer to any question. He did a good job at keeping you updated with anything that went on. He goes out of his way to make sure his client is satisfied. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has been in an accident.
I am very very pleased with the prompt professional service I received from Mr Gordon recently after being hit by another driver while stopped at a red light. The other driver’s company was stalling and not doing much of anything to get matters settled with my car or health issues, but within 24 hours of calling Mr. Gordon, he got my vehicle settlement for me and made arrangements for me to start getting treatments for my neck and shoulder injuries.
