Brain Injuries Caused by Near-Fatal Drownings

It is a common misperception that drowning is always fatal. Many people who technically drown survive. However, most drowning survivors suffer permanent injuries and health complications as a result.

Drowning causes the brain to suffer from extreme oxygen deprivation. When the brain is deprived of oxygen, brain cells rapidly become damaged and may be destroyed permanently. The longer that oxygen deprivation lasts, the greater the risk and spread of brain damage. For this reason, brain injuries are one of the most common injuries suffered by people who experience near-fatal drownings.

Brain Injuries Caused by Diving Accidents

Another type of brain injury suffered by swimming accident survivors is non-penetrating brain injuries caused by blunt force trauma.

Specifically, non-penetrating brain injuries can happen at swimming pools due to:

  • Diving accidents: If a swimming pool has a diving board but is not deep enough to make diving safe, a swimmer may plunge into the water and strike their head and neck on the bottom of the pool, resulting in a TBI. Some swimming pools don’t post clear warning signs not to dive, and others don’t include depth markers along the pool’s edge. All these situations increase the risk of a swimmer suffering a TBI in a diving accident.
  • Slips and falls: If a swimmer slips and falls onto the concrete surrounding a pool, it can cause a serious brain injury. Properties that own or manage pools should post signs that warn visitors not to run while near the pool. Routine maintenance should also be conducted to reduce the risk of trip hazards around the pool like uneven concrete. Also, lifeguards can tell visitors to not run near the pool, so at least one lifeguard should be posted near a pool at all times.

Permanent Consequences of Brain Injuries

A brain injury is considered a catastrophic injury in nearly all cases because even a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) usually causes permanent health complications.

Lifelong symptoms of a TBI can include:

  • Memory loss
  • Motor function loss
  • Speech impediments
  • Difficulty with focusing
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings

Many brain injury symptoms are severe enough to interfere with the day-to-day life of the survivor. It is not unusual for someone with a brain injury to require specialized care from an in-home caretaker. Going to work or earning a gainful income may also be impossible for someone with a TBI. For these reasons and more, you should let our legal team handle your swimming-related brain injury case because we know how to fight for maximized and fair compensation.
