Life in Texas is ideal for enjoying watercraft activities year-round. Unfortunately, this also means
you are at higher risk for accidents if you are a watercraft enthusiast. When out enjoying the
water, female accidents can be quite unexpected, including the vaginal injury jet skis can cause.
Here we review the potential risks for female passengers and operators and how a jet ski
accident attorney can help.
Most females are unaware vaginal injury PWC can occur when high-pressure water enters the
vagina. These accidents can be due to both operator and manufacturer error. As well, injuries
can occur to not only the operator, but passengers, people on other watercraft, or enjoying
activities such as swimming in the water. Vaginal injuries can include a long list of issues
● Vaginal laceration
● Life-threatening hemorrhaging
● Intraperitoneal injury
Vaginal injuries can be combined with several other issues including:
● Broken bones
● Spinal cord injuries
● Brain injuries
If you or a loved one is involved in a personal watercraft accident and suffer a vaginal injury you
can seek compensation from the manufacturer and/or operator of the watercraft.
What Causes Jet Ski Accidents?
One of the main issues with jet skis is that often operators are inexperienced with how they
work. Rentals are available to anyone and even those who own a new jet ski will lack proper
training. Because they have different steering and controls than boats, it can be easy for new
users to make serious mistakes that can lead to accidents to themselves, passengers and other
people and property in the area. However, an added risk is the water forced out at the back of
the jet ski. The motor sucks water into a vent and then forces it out at high pressure at the back.
This water plume can cause serious injury if it hits the vaginal and pelvic area.
