Stockbridge Boat Accident Attorney

Stockbridge Boat Accident Attorney

If you love boating, Georgia has a lot to offer. Boating accidents, however, are serious accidents that all too frequently prove deadly. While boating is a great way to relax, there are plenty of skippers out there who fail to take their responsibility to safety seriously enough – leaving everyone on the waterway at increased risk. If you or someone you love has been injured in a boat accident, don’t delay consulting with an experienced Stockbridge boat accident attorney.

Boating Is Different

When you’re on a boat, you take on increased risk in all the following ways:

  • Because you’re on the water, there is the very real danger of drowning in an accident.
  • You don’t have the same safety mechanisms you do in a car, such as seatbelts and airbags, to help protect you from the impact of an accident.
  • Waterways are less regulated than roadways are, which leaves you more vulnerable to any negligence on the part of the person manning your boat and/or on the part of those manning the boats who share the waterway with you.

Negligence on the Water

While you may be on a party boat, the person driving it shoulders just as much responsibility as anyone behind the wheel of a car does. Skippers who engage in negligent practices make life-threatening boating accidents far more likely, and these practices can include all the following:

  • Distraction
  • Impairment
  • Exhaustion
  • Excess speed and other forms of aggression
