Drowning Accidents

Drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional death in United States, with about ten deaths occurring every single day. Children under the age of 15 are the most vulnerable, making up roughly 20 percent of drowning deaths. Far more people are hospitalized for near-drowning, which may result in permanent brain damage and emotional trauma for all involved.

Pools, hot tubs, bath tubs, water parks, standing water, and natural bodies of water all present a danger when safety precautions are not in place. Children may find an open and unsupervised pool or pond and injure themselves before they can be rescued. Even supervised pools have dangers, such as high-suction drains, excessive chemicals, overcrowding, slick surfaces, and more.

Property Owner Liability in Drowning Accidents

In a drowning accident claim, the owner of the premises where the accident occurred can be held liable for injuries based on several factors:

  • Negligence: The owner fails to erect and maintain barriers that keep children out of pools, hot tubs, or private bodies of water. Or, the owner fails to follow safety, inspection, and maintenance regulations for their pools and the surrounding area.
  • Attractive Nuisance: If a child might be attracted anything containing water on a property, the landowner is responsible for the child’s safety, even if they are trespassing.
  • Wilful or Wanton Misconduct: If the property owner should reasonably have known that the pool or standing water on their land could drown a child, they are liable for the child’s injuries.

Drowning Accident Claims

Drowning accidents are devastating, and often result in permanent injury and wrongful death. If you or a loved one have been injured in a drowning accident, seek out an experienced personal injury attorney immediately. To build a strong case, you must show that the injury or death was caused by a property owner’s negligence, misconduct, or failure to remove an attractive nuisance from their land.

If the property owner was aware of the dangerous condition, or should have been aware, and did not take reasonable and appropriate steps to prevent injury and drowning, they may be held liable for your injury or loss. Our personal injury lawyers have the expertise you need to successfully navigate a claim against a property owner, and get you the best possible compensation. You may be able to recover hospital expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
