Here in the Jacksonville area and Southeast Georgia, we have a lot of beautiful waterways for boating. However, that beauty can be easily spoiled when a boating accident occurrs.
Unfortunately, this weekend another such example took place. One person was killed and two others survived after a 23-foot boat rammed into the jetties at Jekyll Creek south of Brunswick Sunday. The cause of the accident is under investigation by the Georgia authorities.
As injury attorneys in Jacksonville, we see numerous boating related personal injuries. Often such injuries result from the driver of the boat striking a dock, another boat, or an underwater structure such as a jetty or shoal. Drinking is commonly involved in boating accidents.
