Being Ejected From a Vessel



“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S., I want it straight up. I figure you do also.”​- BIll Turley
 

Nothing is more important than your credibility with the judge. You must always tell the truth. Every case had good or bad facts. You need to be up front and honest with your lawyer about everything. Always tell the truth. Always, no matter what it is you might be worried about.

If a judge thinks you are not being honest, you will have your case dismissed. I have witnessed it many times in court due to one white lie.  You must always be honest and truthful about your injury.

Ejected from a Vessel

Being ejected from a vessel is an all too common experience. Once ejected, passengers are hit by the proppellors and/or are injured due to hitting the vessel.

According to 2009 USCG Boating Safety Statistics, there were 176 reported accidents where persons were ejected from a vessel. 51 of these persons were killed. There were 193 vessel ejection injuries.

When adjusted for the low reporting, it is estimated that there are about 2000 people per year injured due to being ejected from a vessel.

One common way this occurs is passengers not being ready for a sudden change in direction or movement of the vessel and they literarily get ejected from the vessel. We have seen this happen with passengers while towing a water skier.

Water Ski Safety Tip:   The Boat Operator

Before pulling up the skier, double check the path ahead for obstacles and make sure the towline is not caught in the propeller or wrapped around the skier. Never accelerate until the skier is holding the towline handle, with the ski tip or tips showing above water and in front, and signals "hit it."
