Georgia is a great place to live if you love boating and other water-based leisure activities. With the Atlantic Ocean and plenty of rivers, lakes and streams, residents have many places where they can spend time out on the water. Unfortunately, the water can also be a very risky place when boaters and others act negligently or carelessly.
If you suffered a serious injury due to someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other expenses. Contact the Hinesville boating accident lawyers at The Nye Law Group to discuss your claim. Our experienced attorneys have helped many victims of boating accidents recover fair compensation.
We offer a free, no obligation consultation and we do not charge you anything unless we recover compensation.

Examples of Boating Accidents
Our Hinesville boating accident lawyers handle claims for a variety of boating accidents, including:
- Falling overboard
- Water skiing accidents
- Boat collisions
- Capsized watercraft
- Swimmer collisions with watercraft
- Slip and fall accidents
- Canoeing/kayaking accidents
- Inflatable watercraft accidents
- Airboat accidents
Some of these accidents are caused by equipment failure or defective products, but most are caused by negligent boaters who:
- Travel at excessive speeds
- Operate their boats while impaired
- Operate a boat in bad weather
- Are distracted and not paying attention
- Are inexperienced at boating
Boating accidents can cause spinal cord injuries, severe burns, electrocution, hypothermia, carbon monoxide poisoning and in extreme situations, death. Boaters can be held liable for these injuries because they have a legal responsibility to operate their vessels safely.
The Nye Law Group’s Hinesville boating accident lawyers have an extensive track record of holding negligent boaters liable for the serious injuries they have caused. We are also committed to securing fair compensation for victims of reckless boaters.

Investigating Boating Accident Claims
You might have to go through a complicated insurance claims process to get compensation for medical bills and other expenses related to your serious injury. However, negotiating with insurance companies while you are recovering from your injuries is a lot to ask.
Our Hinesville boating accident lawyers believe that your health is the number one priority, and that is why we will handle the insurance claims process while you recuperate. We have years of experience successfully negotiating compensation from insurance companies.
Our attorneys are committed to building a solid case by conducting an extensive investigation of your claim. We will research the history of the boat and the boat operator to find out about any previous accidents. We will obtain video footage of the accident if it is available, and if not, we can use technology to reconstruct the accident. Our lawyers also have access to many expert witnesses who can help us show where negligence occurred.
The Nye Law Group’s Hinesville boating accident lawyers will also pursue a product liability claim if the accident was caused by a defective product on the boat.

We know that compensation will not bring back lost loved ones or fix injuries that have left you permanently disabled. However, compensation can help you adjust to your situation without taking on a mountain of debt that you will struggle to pay off.
