Our client was vacationing in Florida from Philadelphia. She rented a wave runner on a local beach. Our client had no experience with wave runners and the rental facility failed to give her the pre-ride instructions required by Florida law. Because our client was not told about the effects of off-throttle steering in wave runners, she hit the anchor line of a boat moored off the beach and injured her throat and vocal chords. The injury required surgery and vocal therapy. The settlement will allow our client to continue her recovery. The case settled on the third day of the trial.
