Jet Ski Accidents
According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, in 2015, there were 12 jet skis accidents resulting in 9 injuries and three fatalities. Last year, the most common age groups to be involved in a jet ski accident were ages 31 to 35 and 35 to 40, with three accidents for each age group. For the jet ski accidents in 2015, the primary causes were excessive speed and off the throttle steering loss. Of course, the natural inclination when you get into trouble is to let off the throttle but, on a jet ski, when a driver lets off the throttle, steering is lost and collisions become more likely.
In a study by the University of Florida, researchers found that jet ski accidents produced far greater injuries than other boating mishaps. Typical jet ski injuries include closed head injuries and serious trauma to the chest and abdominal areas. Most of these injuries were inflicted when the jet ski struck an object causing the rider to be thrown into the object or another boat.
