Parasailing Accident Lawyer
Flying above the sparkling water in Florida while parasailing can be exhilarating, and it can also be dangerous. Parasailing is very popular in the Tampa Bay area, but poor safety management of the activity can lead to serious injuries. Many parasailing injuries are caused by negligence on the part of parasailing companies. If you or a family member have sustained serious injuries during a parasailing accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
Although millions of people parasail every year, it is still an industry that is minimally regulated for safety. There is no guarantee that a parasailing company has employees that are trained and educated on proper safety to prevent injuries or the equipment has been inspected for safety. It only takes a moment for winds to shift or a towline to break, turning an exciting adventure into a nightmare. Many parasailing accidents cause severe, life-altering injuries, even fatalities. The worst aspect is that many of these accidents are preventable and caused by negligence on the part of the parasailing company.
Types of Parasailing Accidents
Parasailing accidents have caused a variety of injuries to unsuspecting adventure seekers. Fractured legs, pelvic bones, broken ribs, punctured lungs and death have all occurred during parasailing accidents. Some of the main causes of these serious injury accidents include:
- Towline failure
- Harness separating from the flight bar
- Harness failure
- Weather changes
- Improper harness fitting
Many people must live with the loss of a loved one or a permanent disability after a severe parasailing accident. There are extensive medical costs, loss of income and unnecessary pain and suffering that can accompany their injury. A parasailing injury lawsuit can provide an option to pursue compensation to cover the costs and damages caused by a negligent parasailing company.
