Boating Accident?

Georgia Boating Accident Lawyers

Serving the Atlanta, Alpharetta and Cumming Areas

Luxury Speed BoatBoating is meant to be an exciting recreational sport for those who wish to enjoy the outdoors. It is a relaxing way to spend a day and in such a type of environment, one does not usually expect to suffer injuries from this activity. Boating accidents, though not as common as many other motor vehicle accidents, do occur and can result in substantial injury. At Van Sant Law, we are committed to assisting those who have been injured in a boating accident in Alpharetta and surrounding areas of Georgia. We want to see our clients obtain just compensation for the damages they have suffered.

Causes of Boating Accidents

Boaters who choose to consume a substantial amount of alcohol can cause serious injury and even death to others on the lake or ocean. If a watercraft operator is impaired or otherwise reckless, the danger they pose to others on the water is significant. Many different acts of negligence can result in a boat accident in Georgia. Some of the most common boating accident causes include:

  • Operator inexperience
  • Operator recklessness
  • Passenger behavior
  • Weather
  • Equipment failure
  • Failure to yield
  • Hazardous waters
  • Excessive speed
  • Alcohol use

This is not an exhaustive list, however, and you can suffer injuries from a variety of conditions. It is normally not expected that a boating accident can occur and forever change your life. If you have suffered injuries from a boating accident caused by the negligence of another individual, it is likely in your best interest to retain legal assistance from an Alpharetta personal injury lawyer.

Boating Accident Injuries

Injuries that take place as a result of a boating accident can be very serious. Brain and head injuries are two common forms of injuries that can result in devastating life-changing effects. Head trauma can take place if an individual is unconscious and under the water for an extended amount of time because of the lack of oxygen. At Van Sant Law, we can help you handle the injuries that you have faced as a result of a boating accident. The aftermath of an injury caused by a boat operator or another individual’s negligence can be very difficult to handle.
