Jet ski accidents can cause devastating injuries, long-lasting pain and suffering, loss of function in extremities, and other injuries and losses.
Liability for Florida Jet Ski Accidents
Nothing stops a rider from making a wrong decision, even if the jet ski is appropriately maintained and manufactured. Different types of operating mistakes can result in severe and fatal accidents. This is from operating a jet ski with inadequate experience and training to operating it under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If a rider causes a jet ski accident, you can hold the rider legally liable for damages. However, this doesn’t mean the rider is the only responsible party. For instance, private owners and rental companies that allow other people to use their jet skis can also be held liable for “negligent entrustment.”
An experienced jet ski accident attorney will evaluate the unique circumstances surrounding your accident and identify all potential sources of financial recovery to maximize your claim.
