The Doan Law Firm

An Experienced Team You Can Trust
Introducing The Doan Law Firm

Drowning Accident Attorney

Serving Clients Nationwide in Swimming Pool and Other Drowning Cases

Attorney Jimmy Doan is a nationally recognized authority in drowning cases, and he is often called upon to consult other law firms in cases of death by drowning and in cases of serious or catastrophic injury in water. If a loved one has been injured or died in a swimming pool, lake, at a beach, hotel, while on a cruise, at a waterpark, or at a residence or other location, this is the firm to call. Mr. Doan has gained 12 different certifications for lifesaving techniques, pool and spa maintenance and emergency response, which allows him to have a far greater understanding of who can be held liable for a drowning accident. As an accomplished litigator, once he takes on a case, you can be fully confident that he will do everything possible to pursue justice.

Let's Focus on What Counts: Your Recovery.

Though it is hard to consider legal issues after a serious injury or death by drowning, the preservation of evidence could be a vital factor in how quickly your case is resolved. It is important to get counsel at once so that all necessary legal actions are taken in a timely manner before your right to file a claim expires. The drowning lawyer at the firm takes on a limited number of cases in order to have adequate time to serve each client and professionally manage the case through to resolution. You can expect personal, compassionate, legal counsel that is dedicated to assisting you in your pursuit of justice.

“They went above and beyond for me and I assure you they will do the same for you!”

Step by Step Guidance from an Experienced Lawyer

There are a number of factors that must be taken into consideration before filing a lawsuit or claim after a drowning accident. The success of your case will rely heavily on the circumstances leading up to your accident, the laws governing these types of accidents in your state, who is determined to be at fault, whether there is sufficient evidence to prove your claim and if a third party may have played a role in causing your injuries.

When another person's carelessness, irresponsible behavior or intentional wrong-doing results in life-threatening injuries or death, that person needs to be held liable for his or her actions. Individuals who have been injured or killed due to another person's negligent behavior may have grounds to file a lawsuit or claim to recover damages.

At The Doan Loan Firm, PLLC., Attorney Doan will take the time assist you with each step of your case by:

  • Sitting down with you
  • Evaluating your case
  • Advising you of your legal rights
  • Helping you determine how to proceed

He will answer all of your questions and help you alleviate any accident-related stresses or worries. Do not expect your insurance company or any other insurance company to have your best interests in mind in this type of case. In cases involving drowning, you need an aggressive drowning lawyer you can trust to be a steadfast advocate for your rights.

Attorney Doan has years of experience and he has built up a highly-trained team that he uses to:

  • Investigate the scene of the accident
  • Discover any potential risks/liabilities
  • Determine fault
  • Gather evidence necessary to build your case

He and his team are committed to helping you seek the maximum economic and non-economic damages for your particular case.

Common Causes of Drowning Accidents

There exist a number of commonplace causes of heartbreaking fatal drowning accidents in the United States. These include:

  • Defective Pool Gates and Fences: Inadequate or malfunctioning pool gates and fences can allow unsupervised access to swimming pools, increasing the risk of drowning, especially for young children.
  • Defective Pool Drains: Faulty pool drains and suction outlets can create dangerous underwater entrapment hazards. Swimmers, particularly children, can become trapped by the suction force of these drains, making it difficult to escape and potentially leading to drowning incidents.
  • Improper Care and Maintenance around Pools: Neglecting proper pool maintenance can result in slippery surfaces, broken equipment, or water contamination, all of which can contribute to drowning accidents.
  • Pool Manager or Operator Negligence: Inadequate training, lack of supervision, and failure to enforce safety rules at public or private pools can lead to drowning accidents. Pool operators are responsible for ensuring a safe environment for swimmers.
  • Lifeguard Negligence: Lifeguards play a crucial role in maintaining water safety at public pools and beaches. Negligence, distraction, or inadequate training among lifeguards can result in delayed response to emergencies and increase the risk of drowning accidents.
  • Inadequate Supervision: Insufficient or distracted supervision, particularly of children, is a significant factor in drowning accidents. Parents, guardians, and lifeguards must maintain constant vigilance when people are in or near the water.
  • Lack of Safety Equipment: The absence or improper maintenance of life-saving equipment, such as rescue buoys, reaching poles, or first aid kits, can hinder rescue efforts in emergency situations.
  • Inadequate Warning Signs: Pools and natural water bodies should have clear and informative warning signs to alert swimmers to potential hazards, including deep water, currents, and dangerous areas.
  • Crowded or Overloaded Pools: Overcrowded swimming pools can make it challenging for lifeguards to monitor all swimmers and respond to emergencies promptly. This can result in accidents, including drownings.
  • Inadequate Training or Certification: Individuals responsible for supervising swimmers, including lifeguards and swimming instructors, should have proper training and certifications to ensure they can respond effectively to emergencies.
  • Unsupervised Access: When private residences or public facilities with swimming pools are left unattended or unlocked, it can lead to unsupervised access, especially by children or inexperienced swimmers.

File A Claim: Help Yourself and Others.

If safety standards have not been followed, other young people are at risk, and the legal action that you take could bring about change and save future lives. The claim for damages, when successful, can also provide your family with the ability to move forward without financial stress, and to pay for the costs associated with the loss of the treasured family member. If the fatal accident took place during a boating accident, it is also a critical matter to get justice and be compensated financially for the negligence that was exhibited by the responsible party.

To get help protecting your rights and to find out whether you may have a claim against a negligent party, do not hesitate to contact the drowning lawyer at the Doan Law Firm as soon as possible.
