Illinois Recreational Watercraft and Jet Ski Accidents Lawyers
Jet Skis and other kinds of personal watercraft can provide lots of fun on the water during hot summer days. Unfortunately, this type of fun can be turned tragic when accidents occur and people are injured as a result. Since personal watercraft aren’t full-sized boats, frequently, people mistakenly believe that these vehicles require even less experience and do not need to be driven as carefully.
At the law firm of Woodruff Johnson & Evans, in Illinois, our lawyers have handled many cases involving recreational boating and personal watercraft accidents. There are many different reasons why these accidents happen, but in many cases, they are caused by negligence. If you have been injured in a personal watercraft or jet ski accident, our firm will work hard to pursue the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

In many cases, the companies who are renting out personal watercraft fail to provide the necessary protective equipment that should be worn while operating it. They may also fail to give proper instructions to the people who will be using those personal watercraft. Owners and operators of these companies may be held liable for compensating accident victims if they are found to be negligent.
In other situations, other operators of personal watercraft and larger boats are at fault for these accidents. Many involve alcohol. Others involve a failure to provide the necessary attention to operating these vehicles. In any case, our firm will thoroughly investigate your accident and work to achieve the best possible results.
