Pool and Drowning Accidents: When to Seek Help

Many people don't know what to do after a pool accident or death and when to seek help. What are the steps that you'd take if you had a loved one that drowned? What would you do if you had been injured while at a swimming pool? At The Doan Law Firm we have a firm commitment to helping families that have been involved in one of these extremely difficult situations. When you've been involved in a pool accident, near drowning or a loved one has lost their life in a drowning accident, it's imperative that you see the counsel of a law firm that has the resources, commitment and compassion to ensuring that the responsible party is held liable for their negligence and will stand by your side throughout your case.

Every day, there are 10 people who drown in the United States (according to the CDC), and out of all the top cases of unintentional deaths, drowning is number five on that list. Approximately 1 in 5 people who die of drowning are children under 14 years of age and there are many more people who are injured after they've been submerged.

The majority of children who will die from drowning accidents will die in residential swimming pools. If someone survives they'll often be left with facing:

  • Memory Problems
  • Brain Injuries
  • Learning Disabilities
  • More

The chance of drowning is expected to reduce by 90% when residential pools have fences surrounding them.

Proving Negligence in a Drowning or Pool Accident

If you've lost a loved one or a child, or you yourself have been injured in a pool accident please contact The Doan Law Firm. The first thing that needs to be proven is liability and negligence. If you or your loved one was injured, or your loved one was killed in a public pool accident, the accident itself could have been caused due to lifeguard negligence, or due to the failure to upload simple standards of safety. If the accident had been caused in a private pool it's the owner's responsibility to ensure that their pool is a safe place.

Our firm provides free, no obligation, initial consultations in which we can discuss the merits of your case, answer all the questions you may have and help you get on the best path forward. Should we move forward with your case, we do so contingently. This means that you'll pay no fees upfront, or during the entire duration of your case. We earn our fee through a small percentage of whatever settlement or verdict we win on your behalf, and only do so upon a successful resolution of your drowning accident case. There's no fee unless we win, if we fail to win you'll never owe us a cent.
