Two Injured In New York Boating Accident
During the Fourth of July holiday, thousands of people go to local lakes and beaches to enjoy the sun and the water. Unfortunately for some, the holiday weekend can end in pain and suffering when accidents occur. For one New York man, the fun ended on July 5, 2009 when he was sent to the hospital with broken ribs after a boating accident.
The man was allegedly racing another jet ski operator around a slalom course they did not have a permit to setup. During the race, the man’s jet ski spun out of control and the man was hit by the other jet ski operator.
Both men were cited for reckless operation of watercraft. It is unknown if alcohol played any part in the accident.
Boating accidents can be very dangerous because people think that drinking and operating watercraft is perfectly acceptable. There are also no restrictions for people who want to operate watercraft without floatation devices. Many boating accident victims are knocked unconscious during their accidents and then drown in the water.
If you or your loved one has been injured in a boating accident, you can recover compensation for your injuries with a boating accident lawsuit. Please contact an experienced boating accident lawyer today to schedule an initial claim evaluation.
