Spending an afternoon out on the water riding a Jetski, Skidoo or other personal watercraft is supposed to be a fun, adventurous day. Few worry about the dangers Jetskis pose to riders, passengers and swimmers in the water. Many underestimate how powerful Jetskis are and how severely they can injure passengers. Because Jetskis are smaller than boats, they are fast, easy to maneuver and relatively simple to use making them more prone to accidents. Jetskis on the water are equivalent of motorcycles on the road. Research from the University of Florida has shown that Jetski accidents cause “far greater injury than boating mishaps” and occur more frequently.
Among others injuries, Jetski accident victims can suffer head injuries, trauma to the chest and abdomen, broken bones, spinal injuries and death. Jetski accidents are often the result of inexperienced drivers losing control of the watercraft and crashing into a person, object or other watercraft. Jetskis are considered to be motorboats under the law and accordingly, are subject to the same laws, restrictions and safety considerations as other, bigger watercrafts.
Additionally, Jetskis are complex machines that can contain damaged or defective parts. If injuries result from damaged or defective parts the manufacturer may be held liable for any injuries. Recently, the 2011 “1150 Speedster” and the 2011 “180 Challenger” were recalled by their manufacturer because they contained defective throttle levers and shift controller assemblies. Cases involving faulty or defective products usually involve complicated issues regarding the product manufacturing process, warning labels and product design.
