Phoenix Child Drowning Accident Lawyer

Legal Representation After a Child Drowning Accident

Far too many people are far too quick to blame children when they do what children are expected to do. As an Phoenix swimming pool accident attorneys, I am constantly frustrated by the immediate "blame the victim" mentality when it comes to kids who wonder into pools and drown. Kids are going to wonder. Perhaps we wish someone would always keep an eye on them. Undoubtedly, there are times where kids wander because of negligent supervision. But to blame the child for the tragedy is almost always unacceptable.

Statute of Limitations for Drowning Cases May Vary

As a small child who is too young to swim ends up drowning in a swimming pool it could have, in fact, had been just one of those "accidents that happen." However, it is many times a tragedy that could have been avoided with proper supervision. In other cases, the problem was not a lack of supervision but a lack of safeguards that would keep a child away from the pool. In any event, these tragedies are so overwhelming that it is very difficult to even consider the idea of whether or not a lawsuit is appropriate.

The reality is, even where a lawsuit could be successful and is appropriate under the law, it may not be appropriate for a family that has been overcome by this tremendous and regrettable tragedy. However, under the law one of the problems that exit is a statute of limitations for drowning cases. In other words, there is a limited time period in which to bring the claim. This time period can sometimes be less than six months. It almost forces a grieving family to try to make a decision about whether or not to bring a claim before they're even ready to go on living their daily lives in any meaningful capacity.

For these families, they deserve the opportunity to speak with a lawyer that will give them a not cost honest evaluation of their options. Not a lawyer who will pressure them into signing up or moving forward with the case, but a Phoenix child drowning accident lawyer who helps people after they have lost a loved one or who have had a family member suffer a severe injury so that they can be guided through the process and make the decision about whether litigation or a premises liability claim is in their best interest.
