During their recent boom in popularity over the past decade, jet skis have provided tremendous fun on Louisiana waterways. However, a jet ski can be extremely dangerous in the hands of a negligent, inexperienced, or intoxicated operator. In fact, according to the U.S. Coast Guard, a person is more likely to be injured on a jet ski than on any other type of watercraft.
