Georgia Boating Accident Claims Lawyers

Many people go boating on some of the many lakes and rivers in Georgia like Clarks Hill/Thurmond Lake and Savannah River. With this love of the water comes the danger associated with boating. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, for the second straight year boating-related deaths and injuries have increased in the United States. In 2006, there were 710 deaths and 3,474 injuries caused by boating accidents. At the Augusta, Georgia law office of Wall Ellison, we represent people and the families of people who have become one of those statistics.

The unfortunate fact is that many of the boating accidents that occur in Georgia every year are preventable through reasonable care and attention. There are many factors that contribute to water-related accidents, but one of the primary factors is alcohol. If you or a family member has been seriously injured in a boating accident caused by any of the following factors, contact us for a free initial consultation:

  • Drunk boating
  • Inexperienced and untrained boater
  • Excessive speed, recklessness and not keeping a proper lookout
  • Boat collision
  • Boat-swimmer accident

Representing Boat Accident and Jet Ski Accident Victims

Nearly 20 percent of all fatal boating accidents are caused by a boater who consumed alcohol. Good sense would dictate that negligent boaters should not be allowed to operate boats on Georgia waterways. If you or a family member was injured or killed when a boat capsized, someone fell overboard, collided with a fixed object or hit another vessel, you deserve financial compensation.
