Negligent Lifeguards and Pool Accidents
When lifeguards aren't doing their jobs or are otherwise distracted and drowning accidents occur while they're on watch, this is something that can be deemed to be negligence under the law. Whenever a lifeguard has neglected their duties a tragedy can occur.
When a lifeguard misses a child in distress, it can result in serious injuries or even death to the child.
