The beauty of North Georgia’s lakes and rivers draw residents and tourists during all seasons of the year for fishing, skiing, swimming, boating, and all types of recreational water-related activities. Even when boaters are careful accidents are sometimes inevitable. But when accidents cause injuries because of recklessness, negligence, or disregard for the safety of others, then the victims have the right to receive compensation for their injuries from those responsible. If you or someone that you love has been injured in a boating accident, an attorney like Casey W. Stevens can help you obtain the settlement that you deserve.

Although there are dozens of smaller waterways in north Georgia, the Chattooga, Chattahoochee, Coosa, Tallapoosa, and the Etowah Rivers, as well as Lake Lanier, Lake Altoona, Lake Hartwell, Lake Chatuge, and Lake Russell are the largest, most popular, and among the most frequented. Boats are on these water year round even though they are noticeably more crowded in the Summer months.

Boating accidents are not malicious or sinister – no one intentionally sets out to wreck their boat, or harm another boater. Most occur due to inexperience or ignorance of the boating laws. Knowing how to operate a boat safely and within the confines of the law is the responsibility of every boat owner. After recent legislation following the Summer of 2012, Georgia’s boating laws are changing. If you have been involved in a boating accident, you need an attorney who is familiar with the latest changes in the law and how they affect your case. (Read more about changing Georgia Boating Laws on our main site).

Some common causes of boating and watercraft accidents include:

  • Equipment failure
  • Unfavorable weather conditions
  • Operating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Operating the boat recklessly, carelessly, or too aggressively

Just as in a car, drivers of a boat or other watercraft have a great responsibility to do everything in their power to act in a safe and responsible manner – not just to the passengers on your craft, but to other boaters, swimmers, and skiers around you. Operating a watercraft without paying attention, being reckless, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol can result in serious accidents and catastrophic injuries – possibly even death. Attorney Casey Stevens represents victims and families who have been injured or killed as a result of another person’s negligence in many different types of cases, and he has a proven history of successfully representing victims of boating accidents all over north Georgia.  

Personal injury attorney Casey Stevens spent ten years as an insurance claims manager and another 3 as their defense attorney, so he has a unique understanding of how the insurance industry operates because. By 2001, he had seen enough to know that he could do more good on the other side. He left his lucrative position at an Atlanta firm and opened his own office. Now he fights for victims just like you to get them the compensation that they deserve. Our office focuses solely on personal injury law because we are dedicated to providing our clients with the best possible representation. Our firm operates under the belief that the quality of a victim’s legal representation should never be dependent upon their current financial situation. We understand that an onslaught of expenses can accompany any serious injury and we strive to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. At the Law Offices of Casey W. Stevens, we represent all of our cases on a contingency basis so that we do not add to your financial stress. When you contact our office, our staff will arrange for Mr. Stevens to meet with you in any of our 6 metro Atlanta offices, or if your injuries make travel difficult for you, he will come to your home or hospital room. After listening to the details of your case, he will offer his expert legal opinion at no cost and with no obligation. Once you decide to have our firm represent you, our office will put up all of the money necessary to thoroughly investigate your case. We never charge you until after your case is resolved and your check in hand. Let us focus on your financial compensation so that you can concentrate on your physical and emotional healing.
