Although we live in a desert, Arizona often ranks in the top five states, nationally, for annual boat accidents and jet ski injuries. At Gage & Mathers, we have seen a variety of devastating injuries, on various waterways, caused by a large variety of acts of negligence.
According to Arizona Game and Fish, some of the most dangerous local water bodies in terms of boating and jet ski accidents include Lake Mohave, the Middle Colorado River (particularly from Davis Dam to I-40), Lake Pleasant, Lake Havasu, and Lake Powell.
According to published studies, the most common waterway injuries involve:
- Collisions between vessels
- Water skiing accidents
- Boat grounding
- Collisions with fixed objects
- Falls overboard
- Boat capsizing
At Gage & Mathers, our experience has been that negligence is often the cause of boating and jet ski injuries, including:
- Operator inexperience or error
- Alcohol-related mistakes
- Overcrowded waters
- Passenger distraction
- Failure to take weather into account
- Overloaded boat
