Nothing makes you feel more alive than crashing over the ocean waves on a jet ski, but jetskiing can be dangerous and it’s worth bearing some simple safety tips in mind if you plan to enjoy your well-earned holiday without any travel accident glitches.
Avoiding injury when jetskiing
If you’re planning to take a jet ski out while on holiday, here are some simple steps to reduce the risk of an accident abroad:
- choose a reputable company
- pay attention to the safety briefing
- avoid the temptation to go too fast
- use the safety equipment provided
- stay well clear of other vehicles, swimmers and divers
- always wear a life jacket
- know your limits
What kinds of injuries can occur from a jet ski accident?
Jet ski accidents can cause a range of injuries, from mild cuts, swelling and bruises to severe, life-threatening injuries such as spinal and head injuries. The most common examples of jet ski injuries include broken bones, dislocated joints and lacerations.
Serious travel injuries can have a devastating impact on your health, as well as contributing to practical concerns, such as taking time off work, lost income and dealing with logistics related to getting treatment abroad and travelling home.
Can I make a claim for jet ski accident?
If you have been involved in a holiday accident or you’ve been injured abroad, you may be able to make a claim for travel accident compensation.
If you can prove that you were not to blame, you have evidence to support your travel claim and the incident happened within the last three years, the personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim the compensation you deserve.
Travel compensation can help to cover reduced earnings, loss of income, unexpected travel and accommodation costs and medical care, both at home and overseas.
