Macon Georgia Boat Accident Attorney
Boat accidents are more dangerous and more common than you probably realize. When you’re on a boat, you’re invested in having fun in the sun – and are likely not worried about being injured in a boat accident. Unfortunately, boat accidents are as dangerous as their claims are legally complicated. If someone else’s negligence causes you to be injured in a boat accident, you should not hesitate to consult with an experienced Macon boat accident attorney.
Boat owners and operators bear a considerable responsibility for safety that includes the following:
- The operator is responsible for ensuring that the boat in question is safely maintained and equipped in accordance with the law, including having the correct number of safety devices.
- The operator is responsible for driving the boat safely, which includes focusing his or her attention carefully on the waterway, adhering to safe boating practices, maintaining a safe speed, and much more. Failure to do so can lead to very serious accidents.
- The operator is responsible for focusing solely on driving the boat, which means there is no space for joining in whatever kind of revelry the boat’s guests are enjoying.
Although boating is all about enjoying your time on the water, the person manning the boat you are on (and the people manning every other boat out there) is responsible for proceeding safely and following all the rules of our waterways.
