Injured on Vacation in Florida - Boating, Jet Ski, Wave Runner Accident in Key West & Miami

Injured On Vacation - Maritime Accidents - Key West, Miami FloridaWere You Injured On A Jet Ski While On Vacation In Florida?Wave Runner Accidents in Key West And Miami Can Ruin a Vacation

Many visitors to Key West and Miami are injured while on vacation while riding wave runners or jet skis every year. These injuries can occur for many reasons, often because of negligent safety instructions, inattentive boaters, or faulty machines. Often jet skis or wave runner rental agencies do not supervise vacationers adequately, or do not go over the necessary safety and operating instructions before releasing the machines. The boating scene in Miami and Key West is lively, and often partiers on a boat do not notice a jet ski or wave runner in the path of their vessel, which can result in a crash and serious injuries. Visitors who are unfamiliar with the operation of these watercraft or the rules that govern their use on the open waterways of South Florida are much more likely to be involved in a boating or jet ski accident.
