Personal watercraft accident lawyers in Pennsylvania

Personal watercraft or jet skis are fun, but they are also very dangerous. Therefore, Pennsylvania residents must use the utmost caution whenever they are operating one. Sometimes, however, a fatal or injurious jet ski accident happens due to another person or business' negligence.

Some of the most common ways that jet ski accidents happen are the result of the jet ski owner failing to mechanically maintain the watercraft. Alternatively, another boater who was negligently operating his or her vehicle, might crash into a jet ski user. In other cases, a personal watercraft operator might injure a passenger while negligently piloting the vehicle. Jet ski manufacturing defects might also be to blame for an injurious crash.

At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we represent injured parties in jet ski crashes. One of the first things we look when an injured client -- or the family of a deceased individual -- comes to us about a personal watercraft accident is the party that is liable for the crash. Often in boating accidents, particularly if the jet ski was rented, the owner of the watercraft or the person who caused the incident may have insurance coverage, which should cover the costs associated to the injured party's medical care.

However, insurance companies will not always readily pay out compensation to injured parties following an accident. Sometimes, it takes some legal strategies and litigation for plaintiffs to obtain the financial restitution they need to pay for their medical care.

Insurance companies might also approach injured parties very early on in order to offer a speedy settlement for a low dollar amount. It is important for injured parties not to accept such a settlement officer without first consulting with their attorney. Also, if an injured party is covered by his or her own insurance, that insurance company could drag its feet on the dispensation of benefits.

At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we will represent you in claims against liable parties and we will represent you in claims against your own insurance company regarding your personal watercraft injuries.
