Georgia Boating Accident Lawyer
Georgia’s warm climate, Atlantic coastline, and network of rivers and lakes offer enticing opportunities for people who love sailing and boating. But when a day on the water goes wrong, the results can be catastrophic.
Boats generally do not come equipped with seat belts or other safety restraints, which can mean serious injuries in a crash. People who are ejected into deep water run the risk of drowning, even if they can swim. In addition, the party atmosphere around recreational boating means some people refuse to take safety seriously, exposing everyone around them to accidents caused by alcohol, inexperience, or bad decisions.
That is why Georgia boating accident lawyer Charles Scholle and the team at Scholle Law are dedicated to helping victims of boating accidents.
Like victims of car wrecks, boating accident victims can make an insurance claim to cover their injuries and medical bills — but just like auto insurance companies, boating insurance providers do not always want to pay what they legally owe.
Our attorneys have decades of experience taking on insurance companies to help our clients get the compensation they deserve. Call us at (866) 592-1296 or contact us online for a free, no-obligation consultation with a Georgia boating accident attorney today.
Popular Boating Areas in Georgia
Though there are very few (if any) natural bodies of water than can be considered “lakes” in Georgia, there are numerous manmade lakes and reservoirs that welcome boats and other vessels. Some of the most popular lakes for boating in Georgia include:
- Lake Lanier receives some 10 million visitors a year
- Lake Sinclair is a Georgia Power reservoir with over 15,000 acres of water
- Lake Allatoona is one of the most popular lakes in the country for recreation
- Lake Hartwell is best known for its fishing, with some catches topping 60 pounds
- Lake Oconee is home to one of the best golf courses in the state
- West Point Lake offers boat ramps in 34 public recreation areas
Unfortunately, the popularity of these lakes means boating accidents and injuries are common. Locals and tourists alike enjoy summer weekends and holidays on the water, which is often accompanied by alcohol and a general lack of caution.
