Trusted North Dakota Lawyers Helpings Victims of Water Ski Accidents
Obtaining compensation for victims injured in water ski accidents
Water skiing is a fun way to cool off when the temperatures rise in North Dakota; Lake Metigoshe even hosts water ski extravaganzas in the summer. However, this popular water activity can quickly become dangerous if a careless or intoxicated boat operator is at the wheel. People who are towed on the back of a moving watercraft have a higher risk of injury than those operating the vessel. Innocent water skiers can be easily injured by obstacles in the water, ski equipment or collisions with other skiers and boats.

That is why we fiercely commit our resources to investigating the specific details of your case, so we can obtain fair and full compensation for your injuries.

How to prevent water ski accidents
Water skiing is a high-risk sport, but taking necessary precautions can prevent injuries from occurring. If you are towed on the back of a boat, it’s important to follow North Dakota boating laws, such as always wearing an approved U.S. Coast Guard personal flotation device. In addition, you can avoid accidents and injuries by having a spotter on the boat at all times when water skiing. A spotter’s job is to specifically watch the skier as he’s towed and make sure he’s not in danger. It’s unsafe for the driver of the boat to also act as the spotter. He needs to watch the water at all times and not be distracted while driving the boat.
Our team of skilled attorneys wants you to be safe on the water, but we also know that accidents are going to occur. When they do, you have a trusted law firm on your side to seek the compensation your injuries deserve.
