Wisconsin Boating & Jet Ski Accident Lawyers
In a split second, a boating accident can change your life.
Bye, Goff & Rohde can help when water recreation goes wrong.
In Wisconsin and Minnesota, heading to the lake and getting on the water is a way of life. While most boaters are responsible and conscientious, accidents caused by irresponsible or negligent operators account for thousands of boat and jet ski accidents each year. The result? Life altering injuries for those involved. In the most tragic cases, lives are lost.
Approximately 5,000 boating accidents occur in the United States every year. After open motorboats, jet skis and other personal watercraft account for the second most common type of boating accident. Recreational boating accidents can be more complex than motor vehicle accidents because physical evidence can sink, or the water can wash it away. Usually, there aren’t many unbiased witnesses. Boating and jet ski accidents often occur due to:
- Operator inexperience
- Operator inattention
- Excessive speed
- Improper lookout
