Many people consider that spending time at the beach is as much of a national pastime as going to a baseball game, attending a picnic in the park or participating in any other leisurely, family activity. At many beaches, lifeguards are on duty during peak hours to help look out for and protect beach-goers. With the number of people and the variety of different activities that go on at the beach, even having multiple trained lifeguards on duty and a beach patrol going up and down the coastline, it still may not be enough to prevent serious accident or injury.
Having surfers on surfboards, people riding jet-skis and swimmers all within close proximity to each other can be extremely dangerous. Add in large waves, rip tides or serious undertows and it is very likely that people will get injured. In an instant a child playing in the waves could sudden disappear from sight and may not be able to be found until it is too late. A heavy rain, an environmental accident or chemicals poured into storm drains can all lead to water becoming tainted and unsuspecting people being exposed to toxins that could cause a serious water illness.
Beach accidents that are caused by another person acting negligently or showing little regard for the safety of those around him or her, are particularly painful as these types of accidents are entirely preventable. If you believe that you or someone you loved has sustained serious injury in a beach accident caused by lifeguard negligence, beach patrol negligence, boaters or jet skiers under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or any other type of careless behavior, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit or claim. Hiring his firm to represent you will dramatically increase your chances of being able to recover the compensation you deserve. Injuries from this type of accident can be extensive and often require life-time care.
