Parasailing should be a safe and fun activity, but unfortunately parasailing accidents – both for Florida residents and vacationers of Florida’s beautiful beaches – are all too common. Parasailing companies and employees often cut corners and make choices that disregard the safety of the customers.
Many parasailing accidents are the direct result of parasailing companies’ negligence, including:
- Malfunction of parasailing equipment, including harness, boat, towline, or sail malfunctions
- Improperly trained parasailing staff
- Unlicensed or improperly licensed parasailing company or operator
- Failure to monitor or improper monitoring of the parasail
- Parasailing staff’s failure to complete safety procedures
- Improper response to parasailing emergencies
- Ignored dangerous weather conditions or weather warnings
- Parasailing operation in dangerous proximity to beaches, structures, or other vessels
- Inadequate information provided to passengers regarding parasailing risks, safety, and proper technique
