Jet Ski Accidents


Texas offers nearly year-round boating weather and provides an abundance of lakes and rivers for all boating enthusiasts. However, watercraft accidents, and jet ski accidents specifically, are often far too common as a result. Jet skis are different than ordinary speed boats and sail boats, offering little to no protection to their operators and any unassuming watercraft in their path. If you or a loved one has been injured in a jet ski accident due to another’s negligence, do not hesitate to contact an experienced jet ski accident attorney.

While the term “jet ski” relates typically to Kawasaki watercraft, jet ski has taken on its own perception regarding watercraft. Jet skis are often a fun way to spend an afternoon on the lake and can be driven on their own or towed behind another watercraft.

Unfortunately, jet ski accidents can occur based on many different outside factors, including operator carelessness and manufacturer error. Jet ski accidents can additionally cause injury to either the jet ski operator or passengers in a separate watercraft. Even more devastating is the possibility that jet ski accidents may cause injuries to swimmers in the water.

Jet ski accidents may involve the inappropriate use of the jet ski by its own operator. Jet skis are notably different from other watercraft in terms of their operation and steering. Many jet ski owners do not have extensive experience in operating jet skis, but instead either rented a jet ski for the weekend, or purchased one without any real training. This lack of training and understanding of the thrust system can result in injuries to passengers on other watercraft or unfortunately to nearby swimmers.


Jet ski accidents are unfortunately quite severe and can lead to serious injuries which can take months to recover from. These injuries include:

  • Burns
  • Broken bones
  • Concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Amputations

Many of these injuries require rehabilitation to learn how to do simple functions again. All of this time spent in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities would not be necessary if not for the negligence of a jet ski operator, watercraft operator, or manufacturer, depending on the facts of the accident.

A negligent party, whether the negligence occurs in the jet ski operation or manufacture, can be held liable for the following types of damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Future earnings
  • Loss of consortium

An experienced watercraft accident attorney can assist you in drafting a claim for damages which were the result of the jet ski accident.
