One man has died after a day of fun on the lake turned tragic. A Virginia Beach native, Marcus Jeffery, died after the jet ski he was riding collided with another jet ski. The collision occurred on Lake Gaston in Halifax County, NC near Hamlin Creek. The operator of the other jet ski has been charged with reckless and negligent operation of a motor boat.
The North Carolina Injury Lawyers Perspective:
Summertime brings with it more and more people enjoying some time on recreational vehicles. Oceans and lakes are often filled with many of these recreational vehicles from boats and jet skis to tubes and canoes. With such an increased number of people taking to the water, we must all adhere to safety precautions and be aware and respectful of the fact that there are others on the water. We must be sure that we are not engaging in actions that may cause others harm or injury. The family of the deceased may want to consult with a wrongful death attorney in North Carolina to discuss their potential options.
