Jefferson Boating Accident Lawyer

Georgians like to boat during the summer at Lake Lanier and Lake Hartwell. They take to the lakes in a variety of personal watercraft, including:

  • Speedboats
  • Water skis
  • Jet skis
  • Yachts
  • Cruisers

The vast majority of people will have a safe and enjoyable day. In rare instances, boaters may suffer serious injuries or even death. When someone else is responsible for the accident, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation.

Boating accident law is complex. There are far more variables at play than you would find in a car accident case. It may be challenging to figure out the responsible party, and you may have to contend with an insurance company that is trying to blame you for what happened. You cannot afford to be without an attorney for any length of time. The sooner you hire a lawyer, the sooner you can know whether you will get financial compensation and the size of your check.

Common Types of Boating Accidents

Here are some ways that boaters suffered an injury on or near the water:

  • Collisions with other boats (other boaters may speed or operate their watercraft while intoxicated)
  • Accidents caused by defective boats or parts
  • Falling overboard when the operator is driving the boat dangerously
  • Capsizing accident
  • Marina and dock accidents
  • Collision with a fixed object

Boats can be more dangerous because accidents happen in the water. You do not have seatbelts on the boat, and you may end up overboard in deep or rough water. Accordingly, fatality rates are higher in boat accidents. Boats are not made to withstand collisions with other watercraft or objects.

ANSWERS FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

Will I be dealing with an insurance company?

Boaters must have insurance, so chances are that you would be negotiating with their insurance company to get your money.

Can I still be paid if I was partly to blame?

Yes, you can receive money, so long as you were less than 50 percent to blame for the accident. Your check would be reduced by your proportion of the blame.

How long will my boating accident case take?

It is hard to know at the outset, but the legal process takes time from start to finish.

Negligence in a Boating Case

Before you can get compensation for your boating accident injuries, you must prove that someone else was to blame for what happened. You would need to prove that they were negligent, meaning their actions departed from the standard of care.

Here are some examples of negligence in a boating accident case:

  • The boat operator speeds and ends up capsizing the boat or collides with another boat.
  • A dock owner poorly maintains the dock, so a piece of it or debris is jutting out into the water.
  • A boat operator causes an accident by operating the boat under the influence of alcohol.
  • A rental boat may be poorly maintained by the company and not be in seaworthy condition.
  • A boat operator makes a large wake in a no-wake zone.

Average Boating Accident Settlements

To determine what your case may be worth, we would need to review your own specific situation. You have a legal right to be paid back for the full amount of your damages if someone else caused your injuries. Some claims can be worth thousands of dollars, while others may be worth millions. The only way to know how much money you deserve is to contact an experienced lawyer.

Your lawyer will fight hard for you to get every dollar, assuming that you have a legal entitlement to financial compensation.
