Two people recently filed lawsuits against a watersports company after they suffered series injuries on rented jet skis.
According to the plaintiffs, last summer, they rented jet skis and were given brief operating instructions before setting out on the water. While touring the Intracoastal Waterway, they said that their guide “abruptly and without warning” turned. Unable to stop in time, riders behind struck their jet skis. As a result, they “severe, disabling and permanent injuries.”
The lawsuits allege that the defendant was negligent for failing to properly train jet ski renters and failing to train its employees on how to operate a jet ski safely. They are seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
