Jonesboro Boating Accident Attorney
Boating is a favorite leisure activity in the beautiful State of Georgia, but boating accidents can be highly dangerous. Driving a boat is a serious responsibility that requires the same care and attention that driving a car does – with the added danger of it taking place on the water. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a boating accident, you need the professional legal counsel of an experienced boating accident lawyer in Jonesboro on your side.
The Dangers of Boating
Boating blends fun in the sun with the very real dangers associated with driving, and this can lead to accidents. When everyone else in the boat is living it up and hoisting their favorite adult beverages, it can be difficult for the boat’s driver to stay on task – without distractions. Add to this that other drivers of other boats are likely similarly distracted, and it can be a recipe for disaster.
Boating accidents happen, and because they happen on the water, the associated injuries are often very serious and include the very real risk of drowning. Further, boats aren’t equipped with the same safety equipment to protect us from the impact of an accident that our cars have, including:
- Seatbelts for every passenger
- The protective shell of the car itself
When you’re on a boat, you’re vulnerable to serious injuries, and when the driver of that boat – or another driver on the water – doesn’t make safety his or her first priority, you’re even more vulnerable.
