Jet Ski Causes And Injuries
The most common causes for jet ski accidents are found to be inexperienced
boaters, speed, alcohol and inattention. The jet ski driver may themselves
be responsible for the accident, but if your injury was caused due to
someone else's negligence, our trained legal staff can assist you
in recovering damages.
Jet ski accidents can cause severe injuries, due mainly to the speed one
is traveling with no external protection. When an impact occurs between
a boat and a jet ski, the occupant of the jet ski is likely to be thrown
violently, resulting in
spinal injuries and even death.
Statistics show that alcohol often plays a large part in many such accidents.
Although having a good time on a boat or jet ski is a common pastime,
drinking while operating them is illegal, just as it is in driving a vehicle.
The negligence of someone on the water who causes an accident can lead
to serious consequences for them and others.
