Getting into a Seattle Jet Ski accident is quite frightening, and a number of life-changing injuries can occur as a result.

What are the possible injuries I could sustain if I'm involved in a Seattle Jet Ski accident?

 

A:

Riding a Jet Ski through Puget Sound is one of the most exhilarating experiences any fan of the water can have. Getting into a crash because of it, however, is not. Although Jet Skis weigh far less than automobiles and don’t drive nearly as fast, you can still become seriously injured if you are involved in a Seattle Jet Ski accident, just as injured as you could be in a motor vehicle collision. Here, we discuss some of the most common injuries that can occur:

  • Concussions. Jet Ski operators and passengers don’t typically wear helmets while riding, which leaves their heads exposed if they become involved in a crash. Experiencing a concussion as a result of Jet Ski accident is possible, particularly if you are involved in a head-on or side-impact collision.
  • Spinal Injuries. While you are riding on a Jet Ski, your entire body is exposed; by contrast, in a motor vehicle you have the body of the car providing a significant amount of protection. Because of this vulnerability, you could suffer a spinal cord injury if your Jet Ski collides with an object or another watercraft. The injury could cause full or partial paralysis and create major changes in your life.
  • Broken Bones and Amputation. Fracturing bones in a Jet Ski collision is very likely, and having to undergo an amputation is possible. If the watercraft directly strikes a limb or if you are pinned by a Jet Ski could cause a bone to shatter or could require surgery to remove an injured extremity.
