Boating accident cases in Michigan are common occurrences during the summer months because of the extensive number of watercraft that exist upon our lakes and waterways. Unlike automobile laws which require an extensive amount of training and testing for an individual to drive a car, the same is not true for a boat or jet ski, therefore resulting in a large number of accidents, often resulting in serious or fatal injuries.
There is generally not a requirement for an adult to have any training or license in the state of Michigan to drive a boat. Further, with the creation and popularity of jet skis and jet boats over the past thirty years, our waterways are used more often in an aggressive manner. Water activities should and can be fun however if the wrong person is utilizing a water craft, boat or jet ski improperly then what is commonly a fun time can turn into a very serious, injurious or deadly situation in a matter of seconds. Jim Elliott is an experienced boater and if you would like to discuss your case, please do not hesitate to call him.
