Jet skis, also called sea doos, are one of the most popular types of personal watercrafts used on lakes as well as on the ocean. However, while jet skis are designed to give people a fun and enjoyable experience on the water, they can be dangerous and even deadly when people choose to act negligently or recklessly while driving them. Unfortunately, an added hazard is the threat of malfunction due to manufacturing or design defects.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a personal watercraft accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for medical bills and other damages.

- Never let a child operate a jet ski
- Take proper safety and training courses before driving a personal watercraft
- Wear a life jacket at all times
- Maintain a safe speed
