Personal watercraft owners need to understand that while operating a water vessel, can be a safe, secure, and enjoyable recreational experience, it also exposes the operator to many potential injuries.  For example, in 2012 the national recreational boating safety organization reported that 4515 accidents involved 651 deaths, 3000 injuries and approximately $38 million dollars of damage to property. Personal water craft accounted for 19% of the injuries and the top five primary contributing factors were caused by operator inattention, inexperience, improper lookout, machinery failure and excessive speed.

More often than not, these accidents could have been avoidable and many times it is the device or machine to blame for injuries suffered. If you have been injured riding a personal watercraft you may be due compensation for the following:

  • Loss of Income
  • Loss of Wages
  • Property Loss
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Distress
  • Loss of Enjoyment
  • Loss of Consortium
