Located on the border of Georgia and South Carolina, Clarks Hill Lake is one of the most visited lakes in the nation. It is primarily known for its vast campgrounds and serene waters, but unfortunately boat accidents happen at Clarks Hill Lake every year. Careless or reckless operation, operator inattention, and excessive speed are the top three factors causing boating accidents, according to a recent Coast Guard report. If you are involved in a boating accident, Clarks Hill Lake boat accident attorney Charles Scholle can help.
Clarks Hill Lake is one of the largest inland bodies of water in the South, with a shorline stretching over 1000 miles. Most days it is a place for fisherman to relax and outdoorsmen to enjoy the scenery. However, from time to time, it is the site of a boating accident that can alter the lives of those involved.
Although the law requires that a boat or personal watercraft operator and its owner must operate the boat with extreme caution to protect the safety of its passengers as well as other swimmers and boaters, this is not always what happens. Sometimes operators are negligent, and as a result, people are hurt, with injuries ranging from a minor broken bone to more serious brain injuries. If you have been injured in a boating accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.
