About Boating and Jet Ski Accidents
Personal Injury Lawyer in Palm Bay
In the sunny and beautiful weather that Florida affords, many people spend countless hours on area lakes and waterways. It is truly a tragedy when a day of recreation turns into a nightmare after a boating or jet ski accident. When an inexperienced, reckless, drunk or distracted boater causes an accident, you could stand at risk of serious and debilitating injuries. Your medical bills could skyrocket and your time lost at work could cost you and your family valuable wages. If you or a loved one has suffered because of the negligence of another on the water, contact a Palm Bay personal injury attorney as soon as possible to explore legal options available to you.
As reported by the U.S. Coast Guard, each year there are nearly 5,000 boating and jet ski accidents nationwide, causing over 3,000 injuries and killing 700 people. Because of the significant speeds involved in many of these accidents, occupants can be tossed from boats and jet skis and their injuries can be quite severe. It is common for boating accident victims to be subjected to crushed bones and fractures, spinal cord injury, and injury to the head and neck. In unfortunate circumstances, some accident victims are limited to a wheelchair through paraplegia, quadriplegia and paralysis.
