Jet Skis are a fun way to enjoy Minnesota’s many lakes, which is why so many residents and tourists visit the many lakes to enjoy this activity. While most people are able to safely jet ski, there are times when accidents do occur. Sometimes the accidents are due to operator error and other times they are due to simple negligence on the part of another party or even the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of the Jet Ski.
