Every year twenty million tourists flock to San Antonio to visit the city's famous attractions which contribute heavily to the city's economy. Whether people are visiting the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention center, or the Alamo located in downtown or the River Walk at Christmas time, the birthplace of spicy chili and the home of the Frito is a welcoming attraction to tourists and military personnel alike. In fact, the city is home to one of the largest military concentrations in the United States, with Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base and Brooks City Base all calling San Antonio home.
With temperatures reaching the high 90's in the warm summer months, residents, tourists and military personnel are no strangers to the various water-related activities the city has to offer. When people are injured or killed in diving accidents, pool accidents, boating accidents, lake drownings and water park accidents, The Doan Law Firm, P.C. is available to assist in all the legal aspects associated with aquatic injuries and wrongful death cases.
Drowning and near drowning accidents are extremely serious in nature due to the fact that severe oxygen deprivation can lead to brain damage and death. Aquatic accidents are unique as compared to other types of injurious accidents in that they are not only preventable, but almost always deadly in nature. While someone might easily survive an auto accident, the same thing cannot be said for a drunk boating accident or a country club pool accident or from an ice drowning. The one element that most all aquatic accidents include is negligence. Whether the negligence involved a defective pool fence, or a defective pool gate, or improper CPR, or negligent pool maintenance, all these forms of negligence can lead to the drowning death of an innocent adult or worse, a child.
A San Antonio drowning lawyer from The Doan Law Firm, P.C. is available to advocate on behalf of drowning accident victims and their family members.

An adult or small child can drown in as little as a couple of inches of water, and for this reason all types of bodies of water are dangerous. Whether the drowning involved a small child in a small wading pool at daycare, or a spa/hot tub accident, or if the drowning involved a pool drain cover accident, or a summer camp drowning/accident, the accident was most likely the result of some form of negligence. The drowning accident attorneys at the firm can investigate the details of the incident in order to determine where legal liability falls and they can pursue maximum compensation from the legally liable party.
