Personal Watercraft Injuries in Hillsborough County and Central Florida
Jet Skis are simple and fun to operate but deceptively powerful and difficult to control. The potential for serious injury is even higher when combined with alcohol, crowded conditions, dim light or other dangers.
In addition to the injuries, there may be differing stories in the aftermath of a Jet Ski accident about who was at fault. The Tampa law firm of Corless Barfield Trial Group is here to protect your rights and pursue your compensation if you or a family member was injured through the negligence of someone operating a Jet Ski-type craft.

Florida Jet Ski Injury Attorneys
Personal watercraft, or PWCs, more commonly known by the Jet Ski brand, have become bigger and faster in recent years. They have also become extremely popular, from vacationing tourists to local residents who enjoy the thrill of racing across the water and jumping wakes. Unfortunately, these trends have led to a greater number of Jet Ski accidents and injuries:
- Collisions involving two Jet Skis
- Jet Ski collisions with boats
- Jet Ski collisions with piers, dock, buoys, etc.
- Water skiers towed by personal watercrafts
- Jet Skis running over swimmers
- Operators or passengers thrown off from Jet Skis
- Jet Ski fires or explosions
Common injuries include head and face trauma, broken bones and crush injuries, back and neck injuries, and serious lacerations. We work with clients to ensure they get proper medical care and we work with medical professionals to ensure that our clients are covered for the medical bills, future care needs, lasting disability, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Experienced Representation for Serious Injuries
Preserving evidence can be important to recovering compensation such as photos of the crash site and the physical damage, photos of the injuries, and statements of witnesses. Trial lawyer Ted A. Corless is skilled at investigating accidents and piecing together a compelling picture of what happened. Was the operator recklessly fast or dangerously close to other people? Was he or she intoxicated? Was he or she old enough to operate a PWC? Could the accident have been foreseen and prevented?
