Bombardier Recreational Products
The rising popularity of personal watercraft over the past decades has spurred a revolution among the watercraft injury. Bombardier Recreational Products joined this revolution through the manufacture of the Sea-Doo. The Sea-Doo remains one of the most popular models of personal watercraft, despite the risks associated with the watercraft. If you or a loved one have been injured in a watercraft accident involving a Bombardier Recreational Products item, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
Bombardier Recreational Products
Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) is a Canadian company founded over 70 years ago and is the manufacturer of the popular personal watercraft Sea-Doo. The company only recently broke into the personal watercraft injury, since for years the company focused on all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, and motorcycles.
The current Bombardier Recreational Products watercraft include various types of Sea-Doos to appeal to all types of personal watercraft operators, such as recreation, luxury, performance, tow sports, and rec lite. Each personal watercraft option offers the end user a specific type of product. Bombardier Recreational Products knows how to appeal to all types of personal watercraft operators through their many options.
Bombardier Recreational Products have faced lawsuits stemming from accidents caused by the Sea-Doo watercraft. Some of the most common injuries which occur by Sea-Doo use involve passengers who fall off the back of the Sea-Doo. The high speed jet thrust will often force water into the victim’s body cavities, which can cause severe internal injuries. The lack of adequate safety restraints to protect against a fall off the back of the Sea-Doo may lead to Bombardier Recreational Products liability. An experienced watercraft accident attorney will be able to best determine whether you have a claim against the company.
Manufacturers of any products owe a duty of care to their consumers. Through this duty, the manufacturer guarantees the safety of the product. The manufacturer must also anticipate use of the product in an unintended manner and must warn against potential injuries caused through this use. Failure to warn of any potential injuries that could stem from the product may result in liability for the manufacturer.
If Bombardier Recreational Products breached this duty of care, they may be liable for the following expenses to any victims:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
An experienced watercraft attorney will be able to better guide you regarding your unique case and can assist you in putting together a claim for damages.
