At the Provost Umphrey Law Firm L.L.P., we represent people in personal injury or wrongful death litigation related to boat or personal watercraft (PWC) accidents in the coastal or inland waters of Texas, the Gulf States and the Mid-South. While these cases often involve negligence claims against a boater or driver, they can also involve product liability claims, negligent supervision claims or other complications of fact or law in developing and proving your case.
Provost Umphrey is one of the region's preeminent full-service personal injury firms, and our trial lawyers are up to the challenge of liability and damages claims arising from accidents on the water. For a free consultation about your accident claims, contact us in Beaumont, Tyler, Nashville or Little Rock.

Our first objective is to make sure that your injuries are correctly and fully identified and treated. Not every serious injury is diagnosed in emergency treatment, especially when closed-head brain trauma is overlooked while more obvious injuries like fractures are treated.
Next, we take the initiative in preserving accident scene evidence, locating and interviewing witnesses, inspecting the boats or personal watercraft for design or manufacturing defects, and relating possible operator error to visibility, weather conditions, channel maintenance, safety violations, intoxication and any other factor that might have played a role in the accident.
We represent clients in boat accident litigation of all kinds, including accidents suffered on a wide variety of recreational craft:
- Speedboats or cabin cruisers
- Water skiing boats
- Fishing boats
- Pontoons, catamarans or flatboats
- Personal watercraft including Jet Skis, WaveRunners or Sea-Doos
Provost Umphrey handles boat accident cases related to accidents in the Gulf, in harbors and marinas, on lakes and rivers or any other body of water. As experienced maritime law attorneys, we can also advise clients about the jurisdictional choices that are sometimes available between federal maritime actions and state-law negligence cases. Depending on the facts of the case, federal admiralty jurisdiction can be available in certain recreational boating cases, and our lawyers can explain your legal options as to the best way to proceed with your claims.
