(813) 254-7119 Personal Watercraft and Jet Ski Accidents

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 & Ligori 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 & Ligori Attorneys at Law to discuss your legal options.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
