The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports that jet skis-also referred to as "personal watercraft"-account for 13% of all registered vessels in our state, yet were involved in 22% of boat accidents, making a jet ski rider nearly twice as likely to experience an accident.

Collision with another vehicle occurred in 41% of jet ski accidents, though other types of accident are common, including:

  • Striking a fixed object
  • Running ashore
  • Capsizing

The leading cause by far is carelessness or inattention on the part of one of the operators, which was a factor in 47% of accidents, while operator inexperience and excessive speed were also prevalent causes.

Pursuing Compensation for Jet Ski Accident Victims

While some jet ski accidents are the result of inexperience or recklessness on the part of the victim, many are caused by negligence on the part of another person, such as if the other rider collided with your craft or even if you were the passenger of the negligent rider.

It might also be possible to pursue a claim against the company which rented you a personal water craft, for failure to properly maintain equipment, or a defective products claim against the manufacturer if design flaws or mechanical breakdown led to an unavoidable accident, such as in off-throttle steering.
