Drowning Lawyer for Diving Victims Nationwide

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a scuba diving accident, you may be wondering how to find an experienced drowning lawyer who can represent your case. Attorney Doan founded The Doan Law Firm, P.C. almost a decade ago, and since that time, he and his legal team have been aggressive advocates on behalf of accident victims and their families nationwide.

He is well aware of pain and suffering that drowning and near-drowning accidents can cause. He has also seen the financial toll that victims and their families often feel after experiencing such a life-altering event. Hiring a drowning lawyer from his firm will significantly improve your chances of proving liability and being able to recover much needed financial remuneration.

Common Types of Scuba Diving Accidents

Scuba diving is a recreational water activity that many people enjoy. Scuba diving can also be an integral part of offshore rig operations, research projects, salvage operations and other occupations. As a safety precaution, divers are required to go through specific training classes and receive certification before they can begin diving. Having the proper equipment is also essential, as one small leak or an improperly maintained piece of gear could leave a diver struggling for oxygen and unable to resurface.

Some of the most common types of scuba diving accidents are caused by:

  • Dive operator negligence or error
  • Inadequate instruction or insufficient training
  • Improperly maintained diving equipment
  • Defective equipment or scuba gear
  • Carelessness on the part of a dive team member or buddy
  • Failure to follow standard safety protocol
  • Collisions with boats, jet skis and other watercraft

Injuries from scuba diving accidents can require expensive medical treatment and long-term care. A lack of oxygen can lead to permanent brain damage. Spinal injuries or nerve damage caused by the impact of a boat or other vessel could leave a person unable to walk or perform what most consider as everyday tasks. The costs related to a person's injuries, along with income lost as a result of his or her inability to work, can lead to serious financial problems. Having an experienced drowning attorney on your side can improve your chances of being able to recover damages even though you were required to sign a release or waiver before your dive.
