What to Do if I Am in a Boating or Lake Accident and Injured

Over the 2011 weekend there were 8 boating accidents this year as compared to 18 last year. Also, 16 people were arrested for BUI, and 31 were arrested for the same last year. Police believe the lower statistics are due, in part, to the economy as people do not have the money to spend freely on boat gas, which has caused boat traffic to slack off a bit. In addition, police are reporting that because the lakes levels are higher this year, there is more surface area per boat and this too leads to fewer accidents. The BUI arrests this year were made at Lakes Hartwell, Lanier, Oconee, Harding, West Point, Jackson, Peachtree and the Ogeechee River.
