Personal watercraft are defined by the United States Coast Guard as inboard boats, less than 16 feet in length, designed to carry from one to three persons, and to be operated by a person sitting, standing, or kneeling on the watercraft. Personal watercraft or Jet Skis have dramatically increased in popularity during the past few decades.
While personal watercraft or Jet Skis are fun and popular, they can also be dangerous enough to cause serious personal injuries and even death for both drivers and riders. Personal watercraft or Jet Ski injuries can result from:
- Reckless operation
- Failure to keep a proper lookout
- Intoxication from alcohol or drugs
- Inadequate instructions to the operator
