Drowning Accidents

In the ill-fated event of a drowning, you should seek legal representation right away. Accidents due to drowning are often fatal, but those who escape death can often suffer life-altering effects such as severe brain and lung damages that eventually lead to death. There are unfortunately thousands of drowning incidents a year and a number of those accidents are caused by the failure to comply with a legal liability. In the case of a drowning caused by negligence or recklessness, a victim's family may file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Negligence can be caused by reckless pool operations or behavior by lifeguards. For example, the state and federal governments have legislated requirements for swimming pool establishments, particularly public pools, which are required to follow certain regulations. Thus, a drowning resulting in a failure to abide by these laws is basis enough to file a wrongful death suit. Other common causes of drowning involve water sports such as Jet Ski or wave running accidents. In such cases, the boat driver might be at fault for the drowning.

Numerous situations constitute negligent actions by a third party. For example, a lifeguard failing to follow regulations at a beach or pool can result in the danger of victims. In the same vein, pools that are open and offer no protection to young children or those unable to swim set the stage for drowning tragedies. Such situations constitute negligent behavior by a third party making them liable for the victim's death.

The aforementioned are situations that could have undoubtedly been prevented. They deserve legal representation from a dedicated attorney at the Genesis Law Group. In these troubling times call upon our legal team to impose the justice afforded to the victim.
