Jet Ski accidents cause far greater injury than other boating mishaps. Boating accidents involving Jet Skis are almost twice as likely to involve injuries as accidents involving other kinds of water craft.
Victims of Jet Ski accidents sustain more closed-head injuries, trauma to the chest and abdominal injuries than victims of boating accidents. Jet Skis accidents are similar to motorcycle accidents in the way that riders have no protection from the elements when a crash occurs.
A majority of Jet Ski accidents occur when riders strike an object with their jet skis. Riders are usually ejected from the vehicle during a collision and victims are more susceptible to hitting the obstacle or other boats involved in the collision. Often times other boats, swimmers, and jet skiers can be careless or reckless and can move right in a jet skiers path, causing them to wreck. When another person’s negligence causes a Jet Ski accident and someone is injured as a result, a lawsuit can be filed to obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.
