In the state of Georgia, it is much easier for a person to legally operate a boat than to drive a car since a license is not required to operate most personal watercrafts and boats up to a certain size. Many boating accidents happen because boating regulations are not enforced in the same way as automobile regulations. This in turn, causes people to become relaxed in the way that they follow laws – looking at them as mere suggestions or guidelines. A large portion of boating accidents are caused by boating inexperience or lack of proper boating safety since taking boating courses or boating education is not mandatory by law. (Read more about Georgia Boating Laws on our blog.)

Some common causes of boating and watercraft accidents include:

  • Operating the boat too aggressively
  • Unfavorable weather conditions
  • Operating the boat recklessly or carelessly
  • Operating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Operating without the help of another person
  • Negligence
  • Equipment failure

People who choose to enjoy the water on their boat or personalized watercraft need to act in a manner that does not put other people in and on the water in harm's way. Serious injuries can occur to innocent people as the result of excessive speed, drinking while boating, and allowing minors to operate the boat. Our firm seeks justice through financial compensation on behalf of injured people, taking into account the future implications of their current injuries as we pursue compensation. Owning a boat carries with it certain responsibilities to understand the rules of the water.
