Jet Skis Collide on Lake, Driver Loses Kidney

$350,000

Litigation Type - Boating Accidents

Client Injury - Pelvic Fracture, Loss of Organ, Chest Injuries

Our client and a friend were spending the day together riding Jet Ski's on French Lake in Shieldsville, Minnesota. When our client was about 200 yards from the shore, he began to slow his jet ski down to come to a complete stop. His friend, driving behind him, turned his Jet Ski to the left but crashed into our client's Jet Ski. Our client was found face down in the water and his friend, who was not injured, got off of his Jet Ski and brought our client to shore. Immediately following the accident, our client was flown to North Memorial Hospital. He sustained a renal artery tear in the left kidney, which resulted in him losing one kidney. He also received a left iliac crest (pelvic) fracture with mild displacement, multiple left rib fractures, and significant bruising to his left side.

Art Kosieradzki settled this claim against the insurer for the Jet Ski that hit our client and obtained a $350,000 settlement.
