Jet Ski Defects

With summer already well underway and temperatures starting to soar, many are seeking relief on lakes and rivers. There is a broad variety of activities available to those who enjoy the waterways, and personal watercrafts like jet skis are especially popular. The safe operation of a jet ski is important because they may otherwise pose a threat to all who are near. Unfortunately, defectively designed or malfunctioning jet skis can create a dangerous situation through no fault of their rider.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a defective jet ski, you may wish to consider holding the manufacturer accountable for resulting harm through a product liability lawsuit.

Dangers of Jet Ski Defects

Jet skis can be fragile and unreliable machines. They can be prone to engine failure, leaving a rider potentially stranded out in the middle of a large body of water. The most common defect that jet ski owners experience is a defective deactivation mechanism. Riders are unable to control the jet ski, and can be thrown or dragged under the vessel. Direct consequences can include:

  • Broken legs
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Brain damage due to near drowning
  • Drowning

Manufacturers are obligated to produce and sell products that do not unduly endanger those who use them and defective jet skis constitute a breach of this duty.
