Boat and Jet Ski Accident Lawyers Arizona

Arizona Boat and Jet Ski Accident Lawyers

More than 5,000 boating accidents are reported annually in the Unites States, resulting in at least 4,000 injuries and deaths, as well as property damage in excess of $35 million. Personal watercraft, such as jet skis and wave runners, are involved in about 25% of all accidents.

The most common causes of boat accidents and injuries are preventable:

  • Operator inattention and carelessness
  • Alcohol use
  • Excessive speed
  • Inexperienced operators
  • Lack of proper safety equipment on board

Alcohol and Boating

Alcohol use accounts for more boat accidents than any other factor, and it is implicated in approximately one-third of all boating accident deaths. More than half of drownings are caused by boat accidents involving alcohol. While it is illegal to operate a watercraft under the influence of alcohol or drugs, boaters are even more inclined than automobile drivers to violate the law. The lesson is clear: do not consume alcohol while boating.
