Jet Ski or WaveRunner Accident Lawyer in Fort Worth
Helping victims and their families get compensation for their injuries
The use of personal watercraft on the waterways surrounding the Dallas-Fort Worth area continues to be popular. With the ease of access to popular destinations such as Eagle Mountain Lake, Lake Ray Hubbard and Lewisville Lake, personal watercraft owners have no shortage of options in the area. But with this popularity comes an increased risk of accidents involving Jet Skis and WaveRunners in Texas. Accidents involving personal watercraft or water scooters are shockingly common in Texas. Injuries can be catastrophic or even fatal, leading to a wrongful death lawsuit. If you’ve been in a Jet Ski or WaveRunner accident, contact Fort Worth Jet Ski accident attorney Coby L. Wooten today. You could be entitled to compensation for your serious injuries caused by your personal injury accident. Accidents involving personal watercraft are similar to boating accidents in that they are often caused by negligent or reckless operation by the vehicle’s operator. Drug and alcohol-related crashes, speeding, and negligent supervision are all common causes of boating accidents, causing Jet Skis and other personal watercraft to collide with recreational vessels, fixed objects, or become grounded on shore. Other common causes include operator inexperience, machinery failure, and improper lookout for other boaters, personal watercraft, or objects in the water.
Common Jet Ski and WaveRunner accident injuries
Personal watercraft accidents can be especially serious because of the exposed nature of operators and passengers on Jet Skis and other personal watercraft. Drowning is a leading cause of death in Jet Ski accidents, with over two-thirds of reported fatalities reported as drowning accidents. Common types of injuries caused by boating accidents include:
- Severe injuries (such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries)
- Broken bones and fractures
- Cuts and bruises
