Lake Drowning

Knowledgeable Drowning Lawyer Committed to Serving You

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for children and the fifth leading cause for people of all ages. Approximately half of all drowning cases take place in settings such as lakes, rivers, or oceans, likely because these bodies of water and their surrounding areas are less controlled. If you or a family member has suffered injury or even loss of life due to a lake drowning or near-drowning accident, let an experienced drowning attorney explore what really happened and pursue the appropriate legal action. As an American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguard, Attorney Jimmy Doan knows the rules and regulations of water recreation areas around the country.

Lake Drowning Accidents Can Be Avoided

Even though civic departments in charge of lakes and other parks cannot control nature, they are responsible for posting signs warning visitors of the hazards associated with that particular waterway. Failing to do so could be ruled as negligence on the part of the agency that owns or operates the property. Other accidents at lakes include dangerous behavior like boating under the influence of alcohol or lack of safety measures such as the absence of life vests on rental watercraft. Additional problems include improperly trained lifeguards or boaters driving too close to swimming areas. If any of these or similar factors have come into play, the victim or the victim's family may have a case for compensation from the responsible parties.

It's Time to Seek Legal Guidance from a Drowning Attorney

After an injury or drowning death at a lake, do not let too much time pass before contacting an experienced drowning lawyer. The Doan Law Firm, P.C. will fight for the justice you deserve while giving you the time and space you need to recover or mourn your loss. Call the office today to speak with an attorney and start exploring your legal options.
