Near-Drowning Accidents

Drowning Lawyer Serving Victims and Their Families

Any type of accident is capable of causing serious injury or death. Near-drowning accidents are particularly dangerous as our bodies and brains require oxygen to be able to function and survive. When an individual is deprived of oxygen for a period of time, as can happen when submerged under water, the body will begin to shut down, the individual will likely lose consciousness and water may end up entering the lungs. Individuals who survive after almost drowning are often left with severe, life-changing injuries and some degree of temporary or permanent brain damage. If you have a loved one has been involved in a near-drowning accident, you may be wondering how to find a drowning lawyer who you can trust will stop at nothing in his pursuit of justice on your loved one's behalf.

Common Injuries Sustained in Near-Drowning Accidents

There is very little more terrifying than almost losing a loved one in a near-drowning accident. It does not matter if the near-drowning was caused by a beach accident, a boating accident, a pool accident or any other type of water-related accident. After this type of accident, all you may want to do is hold your loved one near and be able to go back to living your life as it was before the accident. In most cases, your loved one's life will never be as it was before. Some of the most common injuries and complications stemming from near-drowning accidents include:

  • Brain damage
  • Memory loss
  • Learning disabilities
  • Loss of basic bodily functions
  • Pneumonia
  • Lung damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Infections
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Heart problems which may lead to cardiac arrest

Many of the injuries sustained in a near-drowning accident will have a significant impact on the quality of your loved one's life. In the most extreme circumstances, a near-drowning accident could even leave your loved one in a permanent vegetative state. While there is no way to help a victim go back to a time before the near-drowning accident occurred, there is a way to obtain justice and hold the negligent party responsible for his or her actions. As the victim of a near-drowning accident, your loved one deserves to be compensated for his or her injuries and have all of the accident-related expenses completely covered.
