Cases We Handle

With over 40 years of combined experience, our personal injury lawyers have the insight and resources to handle a wide range of sporting and recreational accidents, including those involving:

  • Athletic or fitness instruction
  • Adventure sports & outdoor recreation
  • Swimming, boating, and jet ski accidents
  • Zip-lining, rock-climbing & white water rafting
  • Sky-diving and parasailing
  • Horseback riding
  • Guided tours
  • Other recreational activities

If you or your loved one suffered injury as a result of another’s negligence, you may have the right to hold responsible parties accountable for causing or failing to prevent harm. We are familiar with the unique regulations and laws inherent to these cases, and how negligence commonly occurs. Depending on the circumstances, negligence can take many forms, and may involve the following:

  • Inadequate instruction
  • Failure to use safe equipment
  • Negligent supervision

Because every case is unique, our Atlanta accident attorneys place an emphasis on fully investigating the circumstances surrounding a sport or recreational accident, determining whether negligence played a role, and working to hold responsible parties accountable for victims’ damages. When a personal injury claim is successful, victims have the opportunity to recover damages to cover losses such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
