Personal Watercraft and Jet Ski Accidents Tampa,  Florida

Watercraft and Jet Ski Injury Lawyer

Water sports are extremely popular in Florida, as there are enticing bodies of water all over this beautiful state. Personal watercrafts (PWCs) and jet skis may seem like the perfect way to enjoy all the sun and water that our state has to offer. Unfortunately, many people who set out to have fun on a personal watercraft leave the shore on a stretcher. Too many times these maritime injury accidents are preventable, caused by the negligence of another.

At Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law, we understand the appeal of jet skis and personal watercrafts, but we also know the law. There are many unsafe situations that can cause serious injury to those who inadvertently find themselves a victim of a jet ski or PWC accident. There are specific admiralty and maritime laws that protect victims of water accidents. We use these and other state or federal laws to help our clients injured in negligent jet ski accidents obtain compensation for their injuries.

Types of PWC and Jet Ski Accidents

It is not uncommon for jet skis and other personal watercrafts to have speeds of 65 MPH or more. These small watercrafts can be very dangerous, especially when operated by someone in a reckless manner or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In addition, there are other larger watercrafts on the water that can be a danger to those on jet skis or smaller PWCs. Some of the types of jet ski or watercraft accidents that can occur include:

  • Collision with a dock
  • Collison with another jet ski or personal watercraft
  • Hit by boat or larger water vessel
  • Thrown from watercraft

Many water accidents occur due to negligence. Jet ski concessionaries may be liable for injuries for not properly instructing their customers on safety issues or not providing the correct safety equipment. Boaters and operators of PWCs that cause injury accidents may be liable for the injuries they cause. It is important for those injured in a jet ski or watercraft accident to seek legal advice on their options.

If you were injured in a jet ski or watercraft accident and you believe it was caused by someone else’s negligence, contact our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law to discuss your legal options.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
