Who is to blame for your drowning accident?
When we represent a client in a drowning accident case, the claim is very often filed under the legal principle of premises liability. Premises liability is based on the understanding that a property owner or other person who is responsible for the premises has a legal duty to ensure that guests and customers are reasonably safe from known hazards. In the context of a drowning accident, this may include taking actions such as installing a four-sided fence with a self-latching gate to keep unsupervised children out of the area, providing safety equipment such as lifesaver rings, posting warning signs and in some cases having a lifeguard on duty to watch over the pool. Failure to take reasonable precautions such as these may expose the property owner to the liability of being sued for damages.
Legal Assistance for Drowning Accident Victims and Their Families
Drowning accident cases require sensitivity and skill on the part of the plaintiff's lawyer. This is true whether you are suing for the wrongful death of your child or if you suffered a partial drowning and sustained respiratory damage or brain damage due to oxygen deprivation. Further, since the claim may be filed against the homeowner's insurance policy of a friend or family, a fact which has the potential to cause a rift in the relationship. We work to help our clients navigate the legal process and to recover the maximum available financial compensation, so that you can more easily move forward with your life.
