We want to help keep you informed about jet ski accidents, and your rights.

Common Causes of Jet Ski Accidents in Miami and South Florida

There are many different causes of jet ski accidents. The following is not meant to comprehensive list, but is a good starting point:

  • Inebriation
  • Inexperience
  • Child piloting the jet ski
  • Speeding
  • Inclement weather
  • Distracted boaters
  • Equipment defects
  • Reckless operation
  • Failure to watch for others
  • Improper maintenance
  • Fire or explosion

Florida Jet Ski Product Liability

It is possible that someone did not directly cause the accident. This would be due to the fact that the jet ski itself had a problem. There are a few different possibilities when it comes to product liability laws in Florida:

  • Structural defects in the design of the jet ski
  • Poor crashworthiness
  • Errors in manufacturing
  • Defective life jackets

It is a good idea to keep a comprehensive record of what happened in order to establish liability. An attorney in Miami can help you out when it comes to collecting evidence that can help get you a huge settlement.

Jet Ski Accidents & Injuries

Establishing Negligence for Miami Jet Ski Injuries

In jet ski accidents, similar to all negligence claims, the plaintiff (the person who is suing the other party) must prove the following four elements:

  • Duty: The defendant had a legal duty to the plaintiff under the circumstances
  • Breach: The defendant violated this duty, either because of action or inaction
  • Causation: It was the defendant’s actions (or lack of action) that cause the injury
  • Damages: The plaintiff was harmed as a result of what the defendant did (or didn’t do)

This would be exceptionally difficult for someone who does not have a thorough understanding of the law. That is where we step in. Our experienced team has the know-how you need to win your case, and we will be with you every step of the way.

  • No recovery, no fees.

    We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial status, should have access to sound legal counsel as they exercise their right to pursue justice and redress any harm or wrongdoing.

    At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, all our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that any payment to the firm completely depends on whether our efforts result in a financial recovery for our client.

    Any lawyer’s fees for representing the client will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in the client’s case or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that the client’s case goes to trial.

    In general, attorneys can receive up to one-third of the gross amount of a pre-suit settlement or 40% of the gross settlement recovery once a Defendant files an answer to a lawsuit. These rules are regulated by the Florida Bar, and the following summarizes our contingency fee policy:

    • Client enters into an agreement granting legal authority to the firm to represent the client in exchange for attorneys fees paid in the form of a percentage of the total recovery.
    • The firm assumes all up-front financial costs and risk associated with litigating the case. All of these expenses are paid by the firm, and are only repaid if a recovery is won.
    • The client pays no fees whatsoever, hourly or otherwise.
    • The firm’s contingency fee percentage varies based on the type of case, level of complexity, and the foreseeable resources required to litigate it properly.
    • Every case is unique, but the contingency fee percentage is always clearly agreed upon by both parties and documented in writing upon retaining our services.

    Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.

    Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.

    Personal injury cases can involve:

Personal Injury

Traffic Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Premises Liability

Product Liability

Catastrophic Injuries
