Jet-Ski Accident Lawyer
The Bay Area is a great place to enjoy water activities, such as boating,
swimming, and jet-skiing. Jet-skis are perfect for lakes, open waterways,
and use in the bay. Jet-skis, along with other personal watercrafts, are
very popular because they are relatively small, easy to transport and
fun to ride.
Jet-skis are typically built with a lot of power and are made to speed
through the water, and unfortunately, this can lead to disaster for an
inexperienced rider. Riders can also find themselves falling victim to
jet-ski accidents as a result of boaters who are unaware of their presence
and neglect to carefully share the water.
As the victim of a jet-ski accident, you may have a right to receive compensation
for injuries or damages as a result of the accident. Whether or not the
accident was as a result of negligence, you need to consult with an attorney
to ensure your rights are protected.
Due to their speed, power and quick maneuverability, jet-skis can be quite
dangerous, especially in untrained hands. Some of the most common injuries
from jet-ski accidents include:
Pursuing Compensation for Injuries
Only about 10% of all boating vessels in California are personal watercraft
or jet-skis. Despite that, more than half of reported
boating accidents (as result of a collision) involve jet-skiers. Additionally, like the
motorcyclist, a jet-skier is more likely to be seriously injured in an
accident than a person using another type of watercraft.

potentially life-threatening. If you or a loved one is the victim of a
