$3.8 Million Paid To Man Injured In Boating Accident

Published April 9, 2010 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

The Dallas Morning News reports a federal jury has ordered a boat manufacturer to pay $3.8 million to a man who was injured in a boating accident on Lake Austin.

An 18-year-old man lost part of his leg while he was wakeboarding on July 4, 2007. The lawsuit alleged the boat, made by the Brunswick Corp., did not have proper safety devices in place to prevent such an accident. The suit claimed the young man’s leg became tangled in the propeller because the boat did not have guards and covers to protect him from becoming stuck in the propeller.

The company is considering an appeal.
