According to Texas law, general maritime law covers those who are non-seamen injured in a sea setting or while involved in maritime activities. Maritime law observes a strict liability standard with regards to product liability claims and even provides causes of action for wrongful death that are available to non-seamen injured on the high seas. Those who are injured at sea have up to three years to file a suit against any accident that occurred at sea.

Medical expenses can be crippling, especially to those that have been in fatal accidents. Medical transportation costs are a part of the debt that can occur after visiting the hospital, and sometimes insurance can’t cover them. This is one of the costs that come from after being in an accident. The two men in the boating accident may be entitled to personal injury claims due to the accident occurring on the Sabine River. A claim can not only cover the expenses of the crash but also for any emergency medical transportation, such as Life Flight.
