With Summer quickly approaching, we will start to see a lot of jet skis and wave runners on the Sacramento River and lakes in the region. Accidents involving watercraft can cause significant injuries or death. The U.S. Coast Guard reported that in 2013 there were 426 accidents involving watercraft in CA alone and over 4000 injuries nationwide. Additional statistics can be found here.  The primary injuries sustained in watercraft accidents are broken bones, lacerations, scrapes, and concussion.

Most jet ski and wave runner accidents occur due to inexperienced boaters, reckless driving, speed, alcohol use, lack of experience and training.
