Jet Ski Deaths and Liability
There are no seat belts on a jet ski. Falling off into the water is a real possibility due to the motion of the craft. The only safety device available to a jet ski operator is a personal flotation device (PFD), according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Any watercraft poses some level of threat to the operator, passengers, those aboard nearby watercraft, or those swimming in the ocean. In some cases, falling off a jet ski may result from the reckless actions of another jet ski operator.
A jet ski operator who takes unnecessary risks by standing while operating their watercraft can change your life forever. If a loved one died due to injuries caused by falling into the water or striking another vessel as they fell, secure legal representation without delay.
