Drowning Accident Attorney
Aquatic Injury Lawyer Serving Victims Nationwide
Accidents and injuries that take place in the water are particularly dangerous, as the likelihood of brain damage due to lack of oxygen is so severe. Drowning accidents at
rivers are more common than one would expect, and the devastation to the family is unimaginable.
Near drowning often results in serious brain damage and an adult or
child whose lives are changed forevermore. Dealing with the aftermath of such incidents is difficult, especially when a precious loved one has been lost; in cases of catastrophic injuries such as brain damage, spinal injuries and other severe injuries the damages can last a lifetime. It is crucial that you have skilled assistance from a
drowning accident attorney to handle the legal aspects of your case.
Skilled Attorney for Your Drowning/Near Drowning Claim
At The Doan Law Firm, P.C., the legal team provides the highest quality and compassionate legal representation to fight for the rights of those who have been injured in a variety of aquatic accidents. This includes incidents that occur at the
beach, on a
Jet Ski or
cruise ship, or at a
public/city pool, as well as at private homes or in rivers and lakes or other bodies of water. The firm can handle cases involving injuries or wrongful deaths caused by
lifeguard negligence or
improper lifeguard training,
beach patrol negligence,
pool operator negligence,
negligent pool maintenance, or by a
defective pool gate or
defective pool fence. The team can also handle cases related to
spa and hot tub accidents.
Drowning accident claims are a specialized area of practice for an attorney to handle. These cases involve specific circumstances related to water accidents and therefore require extensive knowledge on these particular matters. This knowledge will prove invaluable for a victim or family member of a victim of an aquatic accident. The team at the firm knows the difference between accidents related to negligence as opposed to defective products and can take the appropriate legal action to aid a client in seeking fair compensation while holding the responsible party accountable. For example, a case related to a defective pool drain cover or
diving board may fall under the category of a product liability claim against the manufacturer. A case involving a drowning at a
resort may be geared to hold the owner of the property accountable. In the event of a
drunk boating accident, the boat operator may be held accountable. By thoroughly reviewing the case from every angle, a competent drowning attorney can determine the best approach to seek a favorable result.
The team understands that each case is unique and in need of dedicated care and attention. Pool accidents that occur in facilities run by organizations like summer camps and
homeowner's associations may be due to their carelessness or negligence. These cases must be researched carefully in order to see where the responsibility lies.
Cryptosporidium is a parasite that can cause serious illnesses. It can come from contaminated water in a pool or hot tub and the chlorine used does not always kill the parasite. If you became ill or were injured because of this, you could be entitled to compensation. Another way that people can be injured is through
diving accidents. Scuba diving is a recreational activity which is also a part of some occupations. If an equipment failure or improper training led to an accident, you could be entitled to compensation.
