The attorneys at Doyle LLP have vast experience in pursuing offshore and maritime injury matters throughout the world. Doyle LLP has filed suit for a maritime, offshore injury suffered by a passenger of a boat offshore Greece alleging negligence of the boat operator. The suit is now pending in the 152nd District Court of Harris County, Texas.
On or about July 14, 2018, Doyle LLP’s client was killed by the wrongful actions of the boat operator. While under that boat operator’s control, the vessel was operated unsafe weather and sea conditions that caused the passenger to be thrown from the vessel and hit by its propeller. The suit alleges that the vessel operator was negligent and grossly negligent in that he operated the vessel offshore without exercising the degree of care that a reasonably careful vessel operator would use to avoid harm to others under similar circumstances in a maritime or offshore environment. More specifically, violating maritime and admiralty law standards, the boat operator negligently operated the vessel in unsafe weather conditions, in a generally unsafe manner, including with the passenger seated on the gunwale of the speed boat and in violation of both safe handling standards and applicable laws. As a result, the passenger was thrown from the vessel and died from his injuries.
Because the suit involves complex aspects of international admiralty and maritime laws Doyle LLP was retained to pursue damages on behalf of the injured passenger’s family, including loss of support, funeral expenses, and mental anguish.
