JET SKI ACCIDENTS

Were you or a loved one involved in a jet ski accident?

Jet skis and personal watercraft (PWC) are popular summertime rentals in Virginia Beach and the surrounding coastline communities, but inexperienced or inebriated PWC operators can cause serious accidents.

Who Might Be At Fault?

Because jet skis and other recreational boats do not have off-throttle steering and braking, everything depends on the user’s ability to reduce the throttle or or change direction. This is why there are numerous ways for jet skis and other personal watercraft accidents to occur, including: 

  • Collision with another vessel
  • Collision with poles, docks, buoys, sand bars or debris
  • Falling at high rates of speed
  • Grounding the watercraft
  • Capsizing
  • Engine explosion or fire
  • Striking a swimmer or another person in the water

How Can A Virginia Jet Ski Accident Laywer Help?

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a boating or water sports accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical treatment, missed time from work, and pain and suffering.

However, you will likely need a jet ski accident lawyer who has the experience to get you the full compensation that you deserve.
