Official say a Kentucky man vacationing in Florida was injured when he and his mother crashed their jetskis into each other. The 22-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital following the collision with a pelvic injury.
Local areas of South Florida like Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Aventura, Boca Raton, Miami and others are wildly popular with residents and tourists alike because of their proximity to the beach. Being so close to the beach allows for many recreational activities that bring with them many inherent dangers.
Many injuries on South Florida waterways comes as the result of boating, jetski and other personal watercraft collisions. Often times when people are boating or using jet skis in places like Fort Lauderdale and Miami, safety takes a backseat as people get caught up in the sun and fun of these local areas. However, some preventative measures can go a long way to ensure that a fun afternoon on the water, doesn’t turn into a day at the hospital, or worse.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a Florida boating, jetski or other collision on the water, it is imperative to contact a skilled, experienced Fort Lauderdale attorney to help ensure that an injured victim’s rights are adequately protected and competently represented.
