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.

Common Injuries

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.

Even when precautions are taken, injuries from a jet-ski accident can be potentially life-threatening. If you or a loved one is the victim of a jet-ski accident, consult with an experienced attorney at our firm as early as possible after the accident. In these types of serious incidents, you should be aware of your rights to seek fair compensation from the negligent parties that caused your accident. Our firm has some of the top personal injury attorneys in the country, and we hold records for our successful verdicts and settlements.

Our caring and aggressive legal team is the firm you want on your side during this complex process. Contact us today.
