In North Georgia, our climate means nearly year-round fun on Lake Lanier, Lake Oconee, Lake Allatoona and others. Unfortunately, these lakes are also the location of very serious injuries. Our Georgia Boating Accident Attorneys know that serious boating injuries and even death can be caused by alcohol consumption, inexperience or just inattention. Spinning propellers, fast moving boats, jet skis, and a violation of a safety rule can wreak havoc on a fun day at the lake.
Of course, a negligent or reckless boater can be held responsible for their actions, but the owner of the boat, even if they were not driving, can also be held responsible. A Georgia boat injury attorney can walk you through the basic safety procedures of any watercraft, which are regulated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the United States Coast Guard. To discuss safety rule violations in your injury case, please call a Breakfield & Associates Georgia Boating Injury Attorney.
