JET SKI ACCIDENT INJURY – ATTORNEYS MN
Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes, so of course there are many thousands of Jet skis on the lakes. Jet Skis are a lot of fun, and our own family owns two that we use every summer. However, it is important to know that there are several Jet Ski accident cases on MN lakes and rivers every year. Last August, for example, a man fell off a Jet Ski on a lake in Brainerd and drowned. Also last summer, a 72 year old man was killed near Mississippi Point Park in Champlin, when he was driving a Jet Ski at high speed and crashed. He died from blunt force trauma. Witnesses initially thought there had been a passenger on the Jetski at the time of the accident, but that was later determined not to be true.
Jet Ski accidents in MN can happen a number of different ways. One problem is that the Jet ski boats are not large, so other larger boats might not see them on the lake and a collision can occur. Another frequent cause of Jet Ski accident injuries is to a passenger because the operator of the boat was driving recklessly or too fast. The Jet Ski might crash into something, like a dock, causing an injury to the passenger, or the passenger could be thrown off the Jet Ski and injured. There have also been many injuries as a result of someone tubing behind a Jet Ski when the Jet-Ski went too fast or pulled the tube into an object like a dock or another boat. No matter what the cause of the accident, if there is a serious injury on a Jet Ski, a lawyer should be consulted to make sure an investigation is being done in a thorough manner and statements are taken from the witnesses.
