INJURED IN WATER SKIING BOAT ACCIDENT – MN ATTORNEYS
Water-skiing is a great sport and a fun activity in our land of 10,000 lakes. There are obviously some natural risks associated with waterskiing (like falling, not wearing a life jacket, etc.) and people are usually careful to avoid those risks and avoid injury. Unfortunately, however, there are some dangers that the water-skier cannot control. If the driver of the boat pulling the water skier does not drive safely and responsibly, a water ski accident injury can result. Another uncontrollable danger is if another boat on the lake fails to keep a good look out and hits the water skier or the boat pulling him or her.
It is important to remember that the skier behind the boat if vulnerable. Serious injury can result from a waterski accident where the skier is hit by another boat. A lawyer from our office was involved in one case where a water ski accident resulted in the loss of a leg of the skier after the water skier was hit by a boat.
