Besides supplying water and hydroelectric power to Cherokee, Bartow, and Cobb County, Lake Allatoona is also known for its many private marinas and public boat ramps. Drivers of boats on Lake Allatoona have a duty to operate their boats cautiously in order to avoid injuring those around them. According to Georgia law, when a boat operator acts negligently and causes harm to others, he is held responsible. If you have been hurt by a careless boater, Lake Allatoona boating lawyer Charles Scholle can help you recover compensation for your suffering.
Just because a boat operates on water, it does not mean it is any safer to operate than another vehicle. In fact, most boating accidents are caused by factors very similar to other vehicle accidents. For example, many accidents are caused because the operator of the boat is drunk or unaware of his surroundings, including other boats and swimmers. Whether you were on a small boat, or jet skis, you can sustain injuries like brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even death because of the recklessness of someone else.
