We get calls from people who are injured in bicycle accidents and one of the things they ask is, what rights do they have and do they have a claim for injury? That really does depend on what the cause of that injury was.
In New York State, if you are injured during a recreational activity, there are certain protections that prevent lawsuits if the injury sustained was one that would be predicted or foreseen in doing that activity.
However, if a boat, let’s say, crosses your path or another jet skier hits you and you are injured through the fault of somebody else, then that is where we would look for the liability portion of your claim.
