There are three common collision types in boating;
1. Collision With Another Vessel – Any striking together of two or more vessels, regardless of operation at time of the accident, is a collision.’
2. Collision With Fixed Object – The striking of any fixed object, above or below the surface of the water but not the bottom. (Note that the striking of rocks, reefs, shoals, etc. on the bottom is a “grounding”.)
3. Collision With Tow of Another Vessel – occurring while one boat is towing another.


If you have been hurt in a boating accident you are concentrating on your physical recovery and any financial challenges resulting from your injury. We would like you to know that we sincerely sympathize with how this might be one of the most difficult times in your life, and we hope to help you through your recovery process. When a boat accident occurs, and persons and property are damaged, it is essential to know who all the liable parties are, and examine every factor in the boating accident. This is best left to a personal injury attorney, so that you can focus on getting well.


If you care for someone who has been injured in a boating injury, you may be thinking about his/her healing and also worried about the loss of income for your family. We want to assist you and your family through this difficult time. It is a wise decision to look for a skilled boat accident injury attorney with a record of success in the Brownsville / McAllen Texas area, who will help you navigate the process of handling insurance companies, and identifying all of the liable parties involved in the accident.


Insurance companies make money from policy sales and lose money from claims. They anticipate claims and have trained their employees to look for ways to deny claims or reduce the amount of the payouts. Their aim is to retain the profits of the insurance company, not to ensure that you or your loved one have all your medical needs and financial losses covered until full recovery has been achieved. Together with their experts and lawyers, they will examine your boating accident claim and look for ways to pick it apart.

Often, they push the injured party to quickly sign a settlement agreement, even though the extent of your injuries and long term situation is not yet known. This is why it is important to have a professional personal injury attorney on your side too – especially, an attorney who knows boating injury claims and case law. It is not a simple process to create a case that will lead to a fair and just settlement, as boating accident cases can be complicated.


Personal Injury Attorney Humberto Tijerina is extremely knowledgeable about personal injury law, and is ready to aggressively work on your behalf for your rights and compensation. He and his professional and experienced legal team will put the details together in support of your boat injury case and aim to achieve a fair settlement in an efficient and effective manner.

We specialize in personal injury, and we’ve helped many victims of boating accidents.
