Jet Skiing is a popular and exciting water sport, however, negligent, inexperienced, or intoxicated operators can cause devastating accidents. Additionally, just as motorcyclists are often hurt worse than drivers and passengers in automobile accidents, the injuries sustained by personal watercraft accidents are often much more significant than those from boating accidents.
Accidents involving Jet Skis and other personal watercraft result in thousands of injuries and many deaths each year - an increasing percentage of the overall accidents that occur annually on the water. Personal watercraft are governed by the same laws as boats, although many states, including Texas, have additional regulations in place for personal watercraft usage. As a result, it is important to consult an attorney who is experienced in investigating and prosecuting cases involving personal watercraft accidents.
The first step to putting a strong case together is to have a solid understanding of the facts and chain-of-events related to the incident.
