Drowning Cases: Common Questions

Drowning Lawyer for Cases of Death & Near-Death

After a death by drowning, or case of near-death, families struggle to come to terms with a new situation, either the loss of a loved one or a family member whose life has been tragically altered through brain damage. At The Doan Law Firm, P.C., the focus of the drowning attorney is on cases of death or severe injury in a range of drowning cases.

The firm is often called upon to advise on serious cases throughout the nation, due to the extensive knowledge and experience of the firm's founder. You can contact the firm directly for information about a drowning case. The attorney has answered some basic questions about filing a claim or lawsuit to assist you, but contact the firm to discuss your individual case.

How do I know if a drowning death was caused by negligence?

In some cases, it could be fairly obvious, such as a boating accident in which a watercraft operator was drunk. In others, it may not be as clear. Was a hotel negligent if a child drowned in a hotel pool? In fact, each case is unique and establishing negligence is the first order of business. Whether a child gained access to a hotel pool (or residence pool) due to a broken gate or lock, or a lifeguard failed to notice a swimmer who was struggling or did not correctly administer CPR, or any other situation, the firm can look into the case and determine who was negligent, and what exactly took place.

How much will I get in a drowning case as a settlement?

If a close family member drowned, the case will be evaluated based on several factors. These include the age of the victim, the income of the victim (if any), the estimated economic losses that the family now faces, and issues such as emotional anguish, loss of quality of life and pain and suffering. You should have your case valued by the firm. This can help you to understand what to expect with regard to a settlement, as well as answer questions about how long it will take to get the matter resolved.

Will the drowning case have to go trial?

Some cases will require a trial to get resolved, but these are fewer in number than those that are resolved through negotiating a settlement. In any case, the firm crafts the case as if it will be going to civil court, which can be beneficial in alerting the insurance company that the case is being represented by a highly accomplished drowning lawyer. This puts them on notice, and can lead to a faster resolution in some cases.
