Boating and Jet Ski Accident Attorneys in Mobile
Fight for Justice with a Maritime Lawyer in Alabama
When you board a ship, jet ski, or boat, you expect that everything is in good working order and that the operator and crew are competent and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, far too often operator error, carelessness, or defective or unsafe products and machinery aboard a watercraft can result in serious and sometimes fatal accidents. This can include everything from minor fires to explosions, collisions, and even the sinking or grounding of the vessel.

Common Causes of Boating and Jet Ski Accidents
Many people incorrectly believe that if they board a ship or boat, they are responsible for any associated risk. This is not always true. Sometimes the operator, boat owner, manufacturer, maintenance provider, or crew are responsible.
Sadly, many of the boating accidents that lead to severe injuries or wrongful death could have been avoided. In addition to physical injuries ranging from hypothermia to broken bones to drowning, victims also suffer significant emotional loss, economic loss, and diminished quality of life. To help you recover, our firm will investigate the cause of the accident and hold any negligent parties responsible for their reckless actions.
Many accidents result from the following:
- Operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol
- Improperly trained operators
- Lack of life jackets
- Faulty equipment
