Atlanta Boating Accident Attorney

Recent boating accident stats from Georgia are shocking, heartbreaking, and disappointing. According to the law enforcement division of the state's Department of Natural Resources, there were about 23 boating fatalities in the state in 2022. That alone should be a reason for concern, given that we haven't even looked at the number of injuries caused by these accidents. If you or your beloved has been impacted, please contact us today for a free case review. We might be able to assign a skilled Atlanta boating accident lawyer to handle your case.

  • Why Do I Need a Boating Accident Attorney?

    Boating accident cases are very complicated. Things can become even more challenging when they happen in a city like Atlanta, known for its vibrant lifestyle and boating culture at Lake Lanier, Lake Allatoona, Lake Acworth, Lake Sinclair, and others.

    Keep in mind that boat companies or owners are usually required to purchase some form of insurance to protect the injured in case of these accidents. But insurance companies are the same all over; they only care about profits and will do anything possible to avoid liability.

  • Common Excuses Insurance Companies Use to Avoid Liability

    Boat insurance companies might seek to avoid liability for accidents by focusing on the actions and responsibilities of the victim. To achieve this, they'll use all manner of excuses, including claiming that the:

    • accident was due to the lack of proper safety equipment on board;
    • boat operator was under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
    • victim lacked the necessary boating experience or certifications required for safe operation;
    • victim violated boating laws; 
    • accident resulted from the victim's failure to maintain the boat properly or their decision to ignore weather advisories;
    • boat had pre-existing damage; or
    • boat was overloaded at the time of the accident.

    Don't let these tactics stop you from fighting for your rights. If anything, Georgia is a modified comparative negligence state, meaning plaintiffs can still recover damages as long as they are not more than 50 percent at fault for the accident.

  • Victim-Blaming Tactics Don't Work With Morgan and Morgan

    Our injury firm has been around long enough to know the kind of tactics insurance companies use to avoid the financial responsibility of compensating boat accident victims. These tactics don't work with us; on the contrary, we have a zero-tolerance policy against insurance companies that refuse to do what's honorable and reasonable in such circumstances.
