Parasailing accidents can be caused by various factors. For one, parasail operators frequently operate their boats in dangerous weather conditions. For example, parasail operators may continue to operate even though it becomes extremely windy – and this can cause devastating accidents.
Parasailing operators also frequently use defective and subpar equipment and gear.
Parasailing operators oftentimes use rope of the wrong strength (i.e., too weak). When this happens, the rope can break (causing parasailers to fall to the ocean and sustain devastating injuries).
Another danger caused by parasailing accidents is the inability of parasailers to disentangle themselves from their harnesses after falling to the ocean during a parasailing accident. This can cause tragic drowning as parasailers are unable to swim while attached to their harnesses.
Finally, parasailing operators may use defective parachutes – which can lead to parasailers falling to the ocean surface and sustaining catastrophic injuries.This Broward County Parasailing Accident Law Firm Pursues Justice Passionately
