Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys Boating Accidents

Enjoying time on the water is an American tradition. But sadly, many boat drivers forget they need to be as responsible behind the wheel of a boat as they are behind the wheel of a car. And often, despite Georgia laws requiring boater education courses, many boat drivers ignore them. This negligence can result in serious injury or death when an accident occurs.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident that was someone else’s fault, it’s important to understand your rights and to pursue fair compensation. At Wood Craig Miller, we want to hold negligent boat drivers accountable for their actions and to make boating safer for everyone. We have lawyers who are specialists in boating accident cases, and we’re ready to fight for you. 

What to Do After a Boating Accident

Georgia laws governing drivers of boats, jet skis and watercraft are clear and must be followed for the safety of everyone. If an accident occurs, procedures are similar to auto accidents.

Make sure to take pictures, exchange insurance information, ask for ID from the driver, and secure contact information for any witnesses. These steps are critical to ensuring details are preserved should the case go to litigation or trial.

Common types of boating accidents include:


Drunk driving


Distracted driving


Reckless driving


Boat collisions


Jet ski accidents


Water skiing and wakeboarding accidents
