Jim Adler | The Tough, Smart Lawyer
boat accident lawyer

When people think of the state of Texas, they usually think of wide open plains and the Gulf of Mexico. But did you know that there are more than 150 freshwater lakes in Texas, and a vast majority of those lakes are open to the public?

While fishing is a popular pastime in Texas, boating is also something many people throughout the state enjoy. No one wants to think about boat accidents, but they do happen and they can be dangerous. In order to avoid boating accidents, you need to educate yourself on good habits for safe boating. If you do ever find yourself involved in any sort of accident on the water, then you should never hesitate to contact a lawyer to help you put your life back together.

The Facts About Boating Accidents in Texas

When you read statistics on boat accidents from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, you can see that the number of boating accidents and fatalities has been steadily dropping since 2010. But it is also easy to see that hundreds of people are arrested each year for boating while intoxicated. As with drivers on the road, boating enthusiasts can become dangerous to those around them when they decide to drink and drive. When you are involved in a boating accident with an intoxicated driver, a good boat accident lawyer can make sure that the intoxicated driver pays the price for their negligence, especially if that negligence resulted in serious injuries to you or someone else on the boat.

Staying Safe on the Water

You never think about having to hire a boat accident attorney, but things can change quickly on the water. As any legal professional will tell you, sometimes you are not in control of the things that affect you. But you can reduce your chances of serious injuries while out on the open water by following some basic safety tips that any boat accident attorney would recommend.

Before you head out for the day on your boat, always check the weather reports to see if any storms are coming in. If you and your passengers get caught in a storm that was announced on the radio and someone gets hurt, it could be you who faces a lawsuit for personal injury damages. You should always have a plan for your trip, and you should let someone on shore know where and when you are going. Give a friend or family member a list of everyone on your boat along with their personal information so that a proper alert can be given to authorities if you do not return by the designated time. Being careful with your preparations can help to protect you from any claim should something go wrong.

I am a Patrol Deputy for the Sheriff Office and while working one night, a drunk driver crossed the center stripe on the highway and struck my patrol vehicle head on with his pick up truck. Needless to say we (the drunk driver and I) were both lucky to survive, as the accident occurred at highway speeds. Following my release from the hospital, I knew that I would need to have someone represent me. My employer was happy to represent me in regards to prosecuting the driver for criminal charges but, can do little in respect to the recovery of financial losses for medical bills, pain and discomfort, time lost from work etc... This is how my relationship with Jim Adler and Associates began. Yep, you probably guessed correctly when you think of what made me choose the "Texas Hammer" to represent me. Those half obnoxious, half way entertaining commercials and radio announcements most Texans have been seeing and hearing on the TV and radio for years instantly came to mind. Yes, I wanted to "hammer" this S.O.B. for trying to kill me but, more importantly I was worried about the costs associated with the life long injuries I had sustained as a result of this drunk driver's negligent behavior. I contacted Jim Adler and Associates and so began our relationship. I was immediately surprised by the prompt attention and the expression of genuine concern for my well being that I received from the employees of Jim Adler's office. Now as you can imagine, lawyers are not a breed that is held in very high regard by people in my profession but, my experiences with Jim Adler's office and his employees have forced me to amend my way of thinking, at least on the civil side of the house anyway. I have to chuckle when I say that because my experience as a client of Jim Adler's firm has been exceptionally pleasant. So before I venture down one of the stereotypical and infinite number of rabbit holes associated with the relationship between members of law enforcement and lawyers; I will do my best to stay focused on my experience with Jim Adler & Associates. Upon being informed that my case had been accepted by Jim Adler's office; I was contacted by Iris Sanchez who informed me that she was to be my case manager and any questions, comments and concerns could be directed to her. I was pleasantly surprised to receive regular calls from Iris assisting with my medical appointments and future follow up appointments. Iris had informed me that Jim Adler's son, Bill Adler would be handling my case and I was even more surprised to receive several calls from Bill to discuss my case. Now you might be thinking "what's the big deal" with the person who is representing you contacting you? In reality, you are correct in that it isn't a big deal but, what is noteworthy and what separates Jim Adler's Office from the multitude of other lawyers is the genuine expressions of concern and the desire Bill Adler conveyed to me to do their best to help me. I felt an immediate connection and instantly realized I had made the correct choice in contacting Jim Adler & Associates to handle my case. One thing I think lawyers and police officers can agree on is the proverbial wheels of justice turn very slowly. Months go by and our professional relationship is never neglected. Through the unwavering attention of Iris Sanchez and Bill Adler himself, I never felt "out of the loop" so to speak and always had a clear understanding of where my case was at in regards to the legal process. In conclusion, I know my brief description of my experiences with Bill Adler and, his assistant Iris Sanchez, cannot provide the credit they deserve. Together they have done an outstanding job representing their firm/employer. If you are seeking a great firm to represent your legal interests and, take comfort in establishing a professional relationship that feels more like a friendship than a casual business acquaintance, then I highly suggest Jim Adler & Associates.

I was dropped from a previous law firm regarding my case before I called Jim Adler. They immediately took up my case and worked hard on it - I was always up to date with each step they took and the benefits or consequences of each. In the end, I am highly satisfied with the outcome and would not have it any other way. It took some time but I truly appreciate and want to thank everybody who helped me on this journey and worked tirelessly on it.

I am very happy with Jim Adler & Associates. I did not know anyone who has ever used the Law Firm before. The staff is very friendly and treated me as if I were family. At times it got very stressful being without a job. They helped me when I was confused about the process. Mrs. Theresa Rodriguez stayed in contact with me constantly. Checking on me to see how I was doing and to let me know how things were going on there end. The Attorneys that handled my case know exactly what they are doing to take good care of me. Thank You so much Attorney's Mr.Michael Gomez and Mr.Trey Smith.
