Jet Skis and other types of personal watercrafts have become more widespread. Too many operators, unfortunately, are not aware of the dangers associated with operating a watercraft. They threaten their own safety, the safety of their passengers and those around them by going too fast and acting recklessly. When this negligent behavior causes severe injury or death, the victim has the right to pursue full compensation by hiring a watercraft accident lawyer.

At the law offices of Murphy and Pressentin our attorneys are experienced at assisting watercraft accident victims in Wisconsin and throughout the Madison, WI area. We have recovered compensation for damages to people like you who have been injured by another’s negligent watercraft operation.

Watercrafts Must Be Used With the Same Caution and Safety Considerations as Boats

The Nautical Rules of the Road that mandate how boaters are to travel on busy areas of water are also applicable to personal watercraft users. Frequently operators don’t take this into consideration. They get a Jet Ski, navigate into the water without enough education, and drive irresponsibly. They don’t realize that they must abide federal and state laws. They overlook the local laws and ordinances that, in most areas, clearly address rules for operating a personal watercraft. When guidelines are not followed,resulting in a watercraft personal injury, we will go to work for you at Murphy and Pressentin.

Negligent Driver Claims

Frequently claims involve legal action against the watercraft operator who inflicts injury to a passenger, a swimmer or another person. We do realize that watercraft operators can also be victims. We will also take the necessary steps against negligent operators who neglect to follow the Nautical Rules of the Road and hit other watercraft operators.
