A significant part of our practice involves handling injuries caused by boating accidents, whether on the lakes throughout Georgia such as Lake Lanier or Lake Oconee as well as cases that stem from boating accidents that occur along the Georgia coastline. Our attorneys are experienced in local navigational laws which provide the legal underpinnings of many boating accident injury cases. The injuries we encounter often include orthopaedic injury, soft tissue injuries, broken bones, wrongful death and drowning, and often coma. Frequently, drugs and alcohol are the cause of these horrible injuries.
Just because you are a passenger or an operator of a boat on a busy waterway, this does not mean that you have assumed the risk that you will be injured. There are navigational rules that all boaters must follow and we can help you evaluate whether you as an operator will carry a degree of responsibility for a boating accident.
