Lake Lanier, Lake Allatoona, Lake Blackshear, Lake Hartwell and Lake Oconee are just a few of the lakes that are popular recreation spots in Atlanta and the surrounding parts of Georgia. Drivers of boats on these lakes, just like drivers of cars and trucks on roads, have a responsibility to be safe in order to prevent harm to those around them. When a boater acts negligently and causes a catastrophic injury, he or she should be held accountable.
The dedicated Atlanta boat accident lawyers at the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm have helped countless clients throughout Georgia get the compensation they need to recover from injuries suffered in serious boating accidents. Negotiating a fair settlement is our goal, but we are always prepared to take cases to court if that is what it takes to get positive results.

Aggressive Representation for Victims of Accidents on the Water
We take the same aggressive approach to boat accidents and personal watercraft accidents that we take in auto accidents. These cases are similar. Most boaters have boating insurance, and these insurance policies work similarly to auto insurance policies. Insurance companies use the same tactics to avoid paying compensation as they do in auto accident cases. Our founding attorney, W. Winston Briggs, has a comprehensive understanding of insurance company tactics, because he spent several years doing insurance defense, handling the other side of personal injury cases. That experience now benefits the victims of boat accidents.
Our lawyers take great care to determine the cause of boating accidents as we build a legal strategy. All too often, alcohol is involved. We stand up for the victims of drunk boating.
Georgia Jet Ski Accident Lawyers
While many people use Jet Skis and personal watercraft safely and carefully, there are many others who seem to think that these vehicles are built for reckless behavior. They tend to move at high speeds through areas where people are swimming and weave dangerously close to boats. Some riders even attempt stunts that these vehicles are not designed for. All too often, the result of this recklessness is a serious injury caused by a wreck with others in the water.
If you have been injured due to a Jet Ski or personal watercraft crash, it is important that you have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side. You want someone with the knowledge and the resources to put together a case designed to get you full compensation. At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta we know how to get the results our clients need after experiencing a personal watercraft wreck.
Alcohol and Personal Watercraft Do Not Mix
We understand that many personal watercraft accidents and boating accidents are the result of alcohol. In the same way that people should not get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle when they are intoxicated, they should not operate a Jet Ski or personal watercraft. When they do, it could lead to injuries for themselves, their passengers or other people in the water.
When boat or Jet Ski crash occurs due to alcoholic consumption on Lake Lanier, Lake Allatoona, Lake Blackshear, Lake Hartwell, Lake Oconee and other lakes throughout Georgia, people turn to us for help. We have more than 30 years of experience that we use to make sure negligent parties are held accountable.
