Jet Ski Accident Lawyers

California jet ski accident lawyers help those injured in personal watercraft accidents

California jet ski accident lawyers help those injured in personal watercraft accidents. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a jet ski accident or personal watercraft (PWC) accident, it is possible that your life has been altered for a season —of for a lifetime. Jet Ski Accidents can happen in an instant, the the victim’s recovery can take months or years, mounting up costly medical bills and keeping one from earning a living. It is not unusual if your own insurance company –or that of the boater that may have caused the accident– is delaying or outright denying your claim. The personal injury lawyers at Vincent W. Davis & Associates can help you receive the benefits you need to help you in your recovery, make up for lost income and possible even future lost income.

Jet Ski Accident Statistics

The accident statistics involving personal watercraft (PWC) injuries and deaths are staggering. In 2011, a Coast Guard report counted 4,588 boating accidents that involved 758 deaths, and 3,081 injuries. Personal Watercraft accounted for 19% of the accidents, or about 900 accidents. The Coast Guard report doesn’t tell the whole story however, a 13-year old report from The National Transportation Safety Board regarding Personal watercraft safety pegs the number (more than a decade ago) at 4,000 PWC accidents with 57 PWC deaths and 1,831 persons injured. Seems that much of the PWC statistics are voluntarily reported by the states.

High Speeds and Rider’s lack of Protection Add Up to Serious Injuries and Fatalities

Unlike most boating fatalities where the deaths are attributed to drowning, in the majority of PWC fatalities, more persons die from blunt force trauma given the speeds jet skis can reach and the PWC rider’s relative lack of protection (e.g. riding atop the craft like a motorcycle). Jet Ski collision accidents often result in serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, broken bones, soft tissue injuries, and death.

Space Accomplishments: August 1998. Initially, Poindexter served in the Astronaut Office Shuttle Operations Branch performing duties as the lead support astronaut at Kennedy Space Center. In December 2002, he was named as Pilot on STS-120 mission to deliver the Harmony connecting node to the International Space Station; an assignment which abruptly ended with the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster just two months later. In July 2006, Poindexter was assigned as Pilot on the STS-122 mission that delivered the European Space Agency’s Columbus Laboratory to the International Space Station in February 2008.

High Speeds and Rider’s lack of Protection Add Up to Serious Injuries and Fatalities

Jet Skis, when operated safely by experienced boaters, can be wonderful, enjoyable family-friendly water sport. Unfortunately, some personal watercraft users are reckless and negligent in the way they operated these powerful machines sometimes cause serious injury to themselves or innocent boaters around them. When a jet ski accident happens, there are a number of parties who may be held liable for damages, including the negligent personal watercraft operator, the rental company, the property or marina owner and the personal watercraft manufacturer. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a personal watercraft injury, you may be eligible for monetary damages.
