Many Atlanta-area residents enjoy taking boats of various sizes out on Georgia's lakes and rivers or onto the Atlantic Ocean not far to the east. Boating is a pleasurable hobby, and when a boat is given the proper respect it is also a safe hobby.
However, many innocent people are hurt when that proper respect is not shown. Passengers can suffer catastrophic injuries due to the mistakes of a boat operator, while everyone is endangered by a defective part.
Our boating accident lawyers have decades of experience helping the innocent victims of negligence and misconduct. We can do the same for you if you suffered a personal injury while boating.
If you're a resident of the Atlanta, Georgia area and you're looking for an experienced, proven boating accident lawyer, please call Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, PC today at 404-760-7400 for a free consultation.
