Swimming Pool & Drowning Accidents
Why Hire A Lawyer After A Drowning Or Near Drowning Incident?
Obviously, not every drowning or near drowning is somebody else's fault. In fact, many times the person who drowned may have simply been negligent and be responsible for the tragedy that occurred. This is not to place blame on the victim, but simply point out that not every tragedy should result in a lawsuit. However, there are some very common situations where the law does support the victim of the surviving family members of the victim. There are some common examples where a lawyer who has expertise in personal injury and wrongful death claims can be of help after such a tragedy.
In Arizona, perhaps the most common and preventable drowning we see is of children in neighborhood swimming pools where there was a lack of proper security measures or supervision that led to the tragedy.
Also, the lack of a lifeguard or well-trained lifeguard at certain swimming pools and public pools can lead to tragedy that is wholly preventable.
Another common example can occur where drownings happen is the result of either drunk driving with boating accidents or drowning accidents that occur as a result of a lack of life jackets made available to those on a boat. When these type of boating accidents lead to drowning and other deaths, there is a right to bring a legal claim under the law.
Now, the fact that that right exist does not mean it is going to be the best decision for every family. Families are often very torn about how to proceed after a tragedy like this. Lives are so torn apart after so many drownings that it is difficult for the family to focus on whether or not they want to even consult with a lawyer. It is our opinion that the best decision is to have somebody at least sit down with a top attorney who can explain the options to the family so that the family can then make an informed decision in terms of how to proceed. We are always happy to provide a no cost consultation to any family struggling during this difficult time and trying to make these potential legal decisions.
