Operating any watercraft carries the responsibility of understanding and obeying the rules of the water, and boating is no exception. Whether it is on Lake Lanier, the Chattahoochee River, or along the Atlantic Coast, boaters and owners of other personal watercraft have a responsibility to conduct themselves in such a way that does not put others at risk. Excessive speed, operating watercraft under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, or allowing untrained people (like minors) to operate a boat can result in serious injuries to passengers and others enjoying the water. Our firm takes the future implications of a victim’s injuries as we seek compensation for our clients.
It is much easier for a person to legally operate a boat than to drive an automobile in Georgia since a license is not required to operate most personal watercrafts and many boats. Many boating accidents happen because boating regulations are not enforced in the same way as automobile regulations. This in turn, causes people to not follow the laws as closely. 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
- Equipment failure

Now he represents victims against the tactics that they use to minimize or deny claims.
