How an Avondale Adult Swimming Accident Can Happen to You

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on September 18, 2013

As an adult, you probably believe that an Avondale adult swimming accident will never happen to you. However, more than 60 adults visit the emergency room every year for drowning related injuries, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS). Adults in Avondale and throughout Arizona can experience drowning and other swimming accident injuries as a result of many different situations, the most common being:

  • An accident involving boats, jet skis, or water skis
  • Rough housing or horsing around in the water or on the edges of the water
  • Mixing alcohol and water activities
  • Going out to engage in water-related activities in the dark or while exhausted

Preventing Avondale Adult Swimming Accidents

Although Avondale adult swimming accidents do not happen every day, preventing them should still be a major priority for adults throughout the city. Here are some of the best ways you can protect yourself and your friends when you’re out on, or in, the water:

  • Always get plenty of rest before you engage in any water-related activities
  • Leave the alcohol for land parties only
  • Ensure that there are multiple people around who can assist in a rescue, if needed
  • Use life jackets when you are engaging in water activities on open water
