Parasailing Accidents in Miami

Parasailing takes you up above the water for a high-flying adventure, but when wind or equipment malfunction causes the parachute to give, serious injuries can result.

What Causes Parasailing Accidents?

There are a wide variety of causes of parasailing accidents, including poor weather as well as improper maintenance of equipment. When you are injured while parasailing, you will be able to collect compensation for the costs and damages associated with your injuries when another party or entity was the cause of the accident or incident that led to your injuries. For example, parasail operators have a duty to cease operations if a storm is approaching. This requires due diligence and taking care not to expose parasail guests to the risk of poor weather.

Parasailing Operators Have an Obligation to Ensure Safety

When parasail operators fail in their duty to keep their clients safe, they may be liable for any damages that result from injuries they cause. Keeping the business open in dangerous weather can lead to a parasail operator being liable for your injuries, just the same as if they do not properly maintain the equipment to keep it safe for its intended use.

Determining the party at fault for your injuries can be complex but an injury attorney on our experienced team knows exactly how to successful handle parasailing accident cases. We make use of legal instruments like requests for production and depositions to gather the evidence needed to win your case.

FAQs: Parasailing Accidents and Your Rights

The Parasailing Company is Blaming the Equipment Manufacturer for My Injuries—What Can I Do About This?

What Kinds of Negligence May Have Been Committed that Led to My Parasailing Accident?

What License is Required for Parasailing Operation?

The Parasailing Company is Blaming the Equipment Manufacturer for My Injuries—What Can I Do About This?

Even if this is true, a lawyer on our team would do an extensive investigation of the parasailing company’s equipment maintenance and care records and see what protocols and training they have in place to ensure safety. It may be necessary to file a claim for damages against the operator and the manufacturer.

What Kinds of Negligence May Have Been Committed that Led to My Parasailing Accident?

While each case requires thorough investigation to ultimately determine fault, a maritime injury attorney with us has handled parasailing accident cases in Miami involving:

  • Operating in inclement weather
  • Inattentive boat operation
  • Operation by poorly trained employees
  • Lax safety standards
  • Improper maintenance of equipment
  • Harness failure
  • Tether failure

What License is Required for Parasailing Operation?

None. This is perhaps the crux of the problem with serious parasailing accidents that we end up pursuing damage for on our client’s behalf. No special license is required to operate a parasail beyond the license to operate the boat it is being towed from.
