Jet Ski Injury Accidents
Personal watercraft (PWC) such as jet skis and waver runners are involved about 30% of boating accidents that result in injuries and 7% of boat accidents that result in death. Jet skis can travel quickly (as fast as 60 or more miles per hour), and they do not have a braking mechanism.
There is a high risk that a jet ski rider will be ejected an injured in an accident. Hitting water at high speeds can cause catastrophic injuries and even death.
Jet ski injuries can include:
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Nerve damage
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Other injuries
Many of these injuries can result in unconsciousness, which can cause drowning.
If you or a loved on has been injured in a jet ski or personal watercraft accident, you should seek the advice of a capable and experienced jet ski accident attorney. You may be entitled to file a jet ski lawsuit.
Jet Ski and Personal Watercraft Lawsuits
There are two areas our jet ski attorneys investigate in a personal watercraft or jet ski lawsuit. First, we investigate who is at fault for the accident. If you are involved in a jet ski accident, it is important to contact a lawyer right away. Your lawyer can make sure to preserve evidence that may be necessary to prove your case before it is destroyed or altered.
Second, we investigate the compensation you may be entitled to. Depending on your situation, this may include money for past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage and other losses. If you have lost a loved one, you may be entitled to wrongful death damages.
Who Caused the Jet Ski Accident?
Most jet ski accidents involve collisions with boats, other jet skis and other objects. If you were injured in a personal watercraft accident as a result of a negligent boat operator or jet ski rider, you may be entitled to compensation.
There are a number of other reasons why a jet ski injury may occur. For example, defective equipment can cause serious injuries including burns and carbon monoxide poisoning. If equipment is defective or not properly maintained, the rental company that supplied the jet ski or the manufacturer that made the jet ski may be responsible for the injuries. Our jet ski accident attorneys can help determine who is responsible for your injuries.
