About Lifeguard Negligence
Lifeguard Negligence & Drowning Accidents
When one entrusts one's children to the public pool, city pool, country club pool or
beaches in the United States, it is expected that the safety of the
child will be overseen to some degree by the lifeguards present. In most cases, this is true. However, there are sad cases in which the lifeguard was negligent and failed to observe an obvious person in distress, which resulted in dangerous or
fatal injuries. In such a case, it becomes crucial that you contact a nationwide
drowning lawyer at once to assist in making your claim for damages in the case. When one has an injured loved one in any water-related accident, the medical bills involved can be astronomical, and often there are months of rehabilitation needed for the injured, if they are able to recover at all.

Many lifeguards are young people who are interested in many things, including their iPods, phones and other young people their age in the area, and may neglect their actual duties while on the job. When this occurs, tragedy can come about as they have failed to observe a child or adult that is in distress. Usually these cases require some assistance from witnesses to the accident who can provide testimony that indicates that there was negligence on the part of the lifeguard at the scene. It is important to act fast in such a case, as it can become more difficult to contact important witnesses as time progresses.
