Washington sees its fair share of rainy and cloudy days, so when the weather turns nice, residents like to enjoy it as much as possible. One of the ways they do is by riding on personal watercraft, such as Jet Skis.

Although enjoyable, personal watercraft have the potential to be quite dangerous to those riding and to those in their path. A Seattle watercraft accident can happen at any time and for unexpected reasons; however, some reasons are more common than others.

Common Reasons for Jet Ski Accidents

  • A lack of proper protective equipment, such as life jackets and safety cords that turn the engine off when removed from the watercraft
  • The driver or passenger of the watercraft is unfamiliar with water safety
  • The Jet Ski operator doesn’t have much practice driving on the water
  • Unsafe design or defect in the watercraft that causes it to malfunction and get into an accident
  • Lack of Jet Ski operator safety warnings
  • The Jet Ski driver becomes distracted by nearby objects
  • The operator of the Jet Ski makes an error that causes the watercraft to crash or malfunction
  • The driver of the Jet Ski is under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • A negligent driver of another watercraft creates a situation that causes an accident
  • The Jet Ski driver operates the watercraft recklessly or speeds
