Jet Ski Accidents

Jet skis are fast, agile personal watercraft that somewhat resemble a motorcycle on the water. Newer models can reach speeds up to 60 miles per hour, allowing riders to skim across the water. While a jet ski can offer genuine thrills, it can also be extremely dangerous if it is operated by a reckless or inexperienced rider.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a jet ski accident caused by someone else's negligence then it may be possible to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Contact the Kenosha personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874.

Jet Ski Safety

Like any watercraft or vehicle, jet skis must be operated with caution to ensure that a fun experience doesn't turn into a disaster. Before you ride a jet ski for the first time, consider the following safety tips:

  • Always wear a life vest when riding on any watercraft
  • Go slow in “No Wake” zones
  • Watch for shallow areas, trees, or patches of rock jutting out of the water
  • Never speed along shore near swimmers or other watercraft users
  • Never turn directly in front of another watercraft
  • Make eye contact with other watercraft users and use signals to inform them of where you plan to go
  • Take a jet ski safety course before riding on the water

These simple safety tips can help to keep you safe whenever you choose to ride. Sometimes, however, other riders may not exercise the same level of caution and may put others in danger.
