Boating Accident Attorneys

Boat on the Water in Georgia

All boat operators have a legal duty to operate their vessel in a safe manner, and those who fail to meet this obligation are responsible for the injuries they cause. Common causes of boating accidents are operator inattention, too fast for conditions, reckless behavior, under the influence, improper loading, and failure to obey navigation rules and regulations.

The Georgia Boat Safety Act provides good statutory law to examine the facts and circumstances of a mishap. The boat driver has a responsibility to his passengers, to swimmers and to other boat operators. It may be possible to hold the boat driver and the boat owner responsible for injuries caused through negligent conduct.
