Need a Personal Injury Lawyer to Handle Your Boating or Jet Ski Accident?
If you have been injured in a boating or jet ski accident, you should consider hiring a personal injury attorney. Boating accidents have the same dangers and consequences as auto-accidents, thus they should be handled with the same seriousness as any other motor-vehicle accident. Just because a vehicle travels on the water does not mean it is a safer form of transportation.
In 2009 there were 3,358 injuries related to boating & jet ski accidents in the U.S., with damages totaling over $36 million. With these accident statistics, it is clear that there are many dangers associated with recreational boating. Boating accidents are caused by many of the same factors as auto-accidents, thus you should use the same precaution when operating a boat as you do when you are driving.
The causes of boating & jet ski accidents
- Most injuries and fatalities associated with recreational boating are the result of alcohol consumption. Drinking and boating bears the exact same risk as drinking and driving.
- Another factor which affects boating injuries and fatalities is driver negligence. This can be a failure of the operator to pay attention to passengers or the boats around them.
- Passenger and skier inattention is another leading cause of boating-related injuries. This includes a failure of the passenger or skier to be aware of their surroundings, and also alcohol consumption on the part of the skier or passenger.
