Beach Accidents - What to Do When They Occur

Having a day out at the beach is something that's a tradition for a lot of families. There are quite a few resorts that are close to the beach intentionally other than simply having the pools and spas. Being so close to the beach is something that attracts guests more regularly. Most often the beaches are patrolled very carefully and by lifeguards that are fully trained for any situation and to help prevent any accidents from happening.

The unfortunate reality is that of all the measures used to safeguard their patrons, accidents can and still do happen. Especially during peak hours patrons are sharing the waters with:

  • Jet Skis
  • Other Watercraft Types
  • Careless Boat Operators
  • Many Other Swimmers Out to Enjoy the Day Just Like Them

Under any of the above circumstances beach accidents happen and near drowning or drowning accident deaths can and do occur. Whenever someone is under water for too long they're deprived of critical oxygen, when that happens for too long a period of time it does a tremendous (and sometimes irreversible) amount of damage to one's system, especially the brain.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a drowning accident, or if you've lost a loved one to a fatal drowning accident please seek the assistance of a drowning accident personal injury lawyer at The Doan Law Firm immediately after you/your family member has sought medical attention.

After taking your case we do so with a contingency fee. What this means is that you'll pay no upfront fees, nor any fees throughout the duration of your case. You'll only pay after a successful resolution to your drowning accident claim. There's no fee unless we win, if we fail to win your case you'll never owe us a dime.

The Aftermath of a Beach Accident

Any incident that's related to water has the serious potential for a TBI (traumatic brain injury); an injury that one may never recover from. There are some brain injuries which are mild enough in order to respond to extensive levels of rehabilitation, at least partially. All too often, however, the victims of TBIs will lose their lives due to the brain damage that they sustained. Sometimes there may be the need for amputation or an injured person may suffer complete or partial paralysis. Other times someone may never wake up, leaving the need for around the clock care due to the permanent vegetative state.

This does paint an extremely bleak picture and your child, friend or family member may recover just fine, however, the picture "painted" is just to show you the necessity of having experienced drowning accident legal representation on your side, to protect your rights and ensure that you're able to get the justice and compensation that you deserve. We'll also be able to ensure that you're able to obtain the best medical treatments necessary by ensuring that you get the compensation you're entitled to.
