Lehigh Acres Jet Ski Accident Lawyer

Everyone assumes a certain level or risk when they venture out onto or into the water, just as they assume a certain level of risk by entering a store or driving on the road. This does not mean that a negligent party cannot be successfully sued for compensation of said party causes injury to an innocent bystander. If you were injured in a jet ski collision, whether you were aboard the jet ski, you were swimming, or you were on a fishing boat, the Lehigh Acres jet ski accident lawyer at Cardinal Law, P.A. is here to help you enact justice by holding the careless or reckless party accountable.

Assisting Injured Jet Ski Users

Jet ski operators usually do not receive the benefit of the doubt when involved in accidents. Like motorcyclists, jet skis are often blamed first But we never make this assumption. If you were harmed while operating a jet ski because of another party’s negligence, we can help you prove fault to win your claim.

Top Causes of Jet Ski Accidents

Some people get out on the water and assume that it is a free for all, and that the rules of society no longer apply simply because they are on a body of water instead of driving around on land. Yet, there are still rules: right of way, speed limits, wake limits, lifejacket laws, etc. When jet skis or motorboat operators fail to uphold their duty of care to other water users, accidents are bound to occur. The most common causes of jet ski accidents include:

  • Operator inexperience
  • Inattention or distraction
  • Excessive speed
  • Causing excessive wake
  • Recklessness
  • Intoxication
  • Improper lookout
  • Defective machinery
