Boating Accidents

The Tennessee River flows through Chattanooga, along with several other rivers, and this area has many lakes that draw thousands of recreational visitors annually. With countless boats and personal watercrafts on Tennessee and Georgia waterways, and many operators who are not prepared, accidents are bound to happen. When a boating accident results in severe injuries, the personal injury law firm Wagner & Wagner is here to pick up the pieces. Our experienced boating accident attorneys help victims of boat and personal watercraft accidents get their lives back on track after serious injuries result.


It is often the aggressive boaters, the ones who drive recklessly and fail to respect the space of other boaters, who end up causing serious accidents and fatalities. Intoxicated boaters or boaters under the influence of drugs are also a continuing problem that threatens the safety of men, women, and children. At Wagner & Wagner, we handle all types of boating accidents, including drinking and boating accidents, dock accidents, boat explosions, swimmer accidents, personal watercraft collisions, propeller injuries, and wrongful death.


The law states that boaters have a duty to operate their watercrafts with a reasonable amount of care and adherence to safety codes. If your injuries were caused by a negligent boater, you may be able to collect substantial compensation to cover your medical expenses, emotional suffering, and other related effects of the accident. If the accident was a result of a defective boat part, you may have a product liability claim against the product manufacturer.

Our boating accident attorneys are proud of the work we have done for injured boaters and their families. When we obtain a substantial settlement or positive verdict, we send a message that careless behavior will not be tolerated on our waterways. The Wagner Law Firm has been helping area residents for more than 65 years, and we would be very grateful if you choose us to help you overcome this difficult challenge. Our goal is to make sure your family is taken care of financially and able to focus on healing.

If you or a family member has been injured in a boat accident on any Georgia or Tennessee body of water, let our seasoned legal experts fight to get you all the money you deserve.
