Drowning Accident Attorney
Frequently Asked Questions: Aquatic Accident FAQ
How do I choose an attorney for a drowning accident case?
It is advised that you contact a drowning accident lawyer that has extensive experience in such cases as developing the claim or lawsuit requires extensive documentation and proof of negligence as well as addressing all the damages suffered in the case. At The Doan Law Firm, P.C., the legal team has taken on this area of personal injury cases and provides the knowledgeable and professional legal representation needed in these complex personal injury cases.
What is Cryptosporidium?
This is a parasite that can be found in contaminated water that can be very dangerous to humans, especially those with compromised immune systems. In such individuals, the problem can result in a fatality. This parasite is found often in individuals who swim in pools with improper sanitation. Some stains of the parasite are resistant to chlorine. If you or a loved one has been infected with this parasite, it may be possible to make a claim for damages, depending upon the damages suffered by the victim.
How much should I expect in a drowning accident lawsuit?
All drowning accident claims must be fully evaluated in order to determine what to expect in compensation for damages. The legal team at the firm is prepared to analyze the drowning case and determine who is liable and what parties will be named in the lawsuit. After this analysis, the drowning accident lawyer can advise you what could be expected in compensatory damages.
How much will a lawyer cost?
Each case varies, but in such cases, they are usually taken on a contingency basis - you do not pay unless a recovery of compensation is achieved in a settlement, verdict or judgment in your case. The firm takes a reasonable percentage of the amount recovered when the case resolves.
Will the case go to trial?
In some cases a trial is the only option, as the opposing attorney contests the evidence of negligence. In many cases a settlement is achieved prior to going to court. In either case, we stand firm for our clients.
