A recent maritime collision involved the wrongful death of a recreational jet-skier on a local lake. The decedent’s parents brought a wrongful death action against another recreational boater and used expert testimony to prove that the recreational boater was negligent in failing to see the client, striking the jet-skier and killing him instantly. The parties reached a settlement at mediation, immediately before trial, for six figures.
