When the weather is warm and the skies clear, you are out on the nearest lake — boating or on the flotation devices of your choice. And why not? There is nothing more relaxing, romantic, playful, or adventurous, whatever mood you are seeking. But the activity could get a little too adventurous, such as if you or a family member suffer a boat injury, jet ski injury or other calamity. It can happen in several ways through no fault of your own.
The Recklessness of Others
There are various ways of risking serious injury while out on the lake. Speed or recklessness might be involved. Boat collisions can occur if everyone is not acting responsibly or alcohol is involved. Jet skis can be guided missiles in the wrong hands. You could also be injured when a jet ski, pontoon boat, motorboat or other vessel collides with a poorly identified buoy or dock. These water-related injuries can range from scrapes and contusions to serious cuts, broken bones, and head injuries.
