About Watercraft Accidents

Most people operate their boats and jet skis according to the safety rules and regulations. Accidents usually happen because someone has acted recklessly or negligently and placed others at risk. The following are some contributing factors to accident injuries or deaths:

  • Failure to yield
  • Lack of floatation devices
  • Use of drugs or alcohol
  • Untrained or uneducated watercraft operators

A watercraft collision can cause victims to fall overboard and drown or receive severe injuries. Florida has the highest incidents of watercraft accidents with injuries and fatalities. Most watercraft owners have insurance to cover property damage and medical costs. If a watercraft accident is the result of negligence, the responsible party may be liable to the injured victims for damages the suffered due to the accident.

Damages may include lost income, medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering. Speak with one of our attorneys before settling with an insurance company. An insurance company may require giving up the rights to any future compensation beyond the settlement.
