Sea-Doo Colon Injuries
Sea-Doos are a popular form of personal watercraft, with the use of Sea-Doos rising during summer months. Many water-loving people enjoy taking their Sea-Doo out on the nearby lake, river, or other waterway during the hot summer months. However, this fun experience can quickly turn dangerous when certain factors are put into play. If you or a loved one have experienced a colon injury as the result of a Sea-Doo accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Bombardier Recreational Products began producing motor vehicles over 70 years ago, although only began manufacturing personal watercraft in the 1980s, including the Sea-Doo. The Sea-Doo was the first high performance version of a sit down personal watercraft and was the model that other manufacturers looked to when designing their own models. The Sea-Doo became immensely popular over the years and now Bombardier Recreational Products offers many versions of the Sea-Doo to choose from, including types geared for recreation, luxury, performance, sports, and a “lite” version.
Sea-Doo Colon Injuries
While personal watercraft are ubiquitous with summer fun on the lake, the Sea-Doo also has a downside for any user. Sea-Doo accidents are often the cause of defective products or driver inexperience, and possibly a combination of both. Sea-Doo accidents unfortunately often lead to severe colon injuries. Colon injuries can occur from Sea-Doo accidents based on the amount of the jet thrust which is kicked out behind the watercraft itself. A passenger who falls off the Sea-Doo may suffer severe colon injuries due to the high-pressured jet thrust. This jet thrust can hit a passenger’s anus or other body orifice, leading to severe injuries. A victim of this type of colon injury often requires months or years of hospital care, including surgeries.
As a victim of a Sea-Doo accident, you may be entitled to receive the following for your injuries:

- Rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
