Not unlike ATVs, personal watercraft (PWC), such as jet skis, present often overlooked but very real and common risks of accidents and personal injuries in Florida. In fact, jet skis and other PWC, can be just as likely to collide, overturn, and cause accidents on Florida’s many waterways, as motor boats. Like ATVs and motorcycles, jet skis can exceed speeds of 70 mph and require significant skill to handle them safely. Therefore, drivers and passengers of these vessels, along with boaters and others in the water, are susceptible to serious injuries from the negligent operation or defective design/manufacture of jet skis and other PWC.
