Why to Hire a Top Tucson Personal Injury Attorney after a Drowning or Near Drowning Incident

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on April 7, 2010

As experienced Tucson personal injury lawyers, we understand that not every drowning or near drowning incident is the fault of another persona. Many times, the person who drowned may have been negligent, and responsible for the tragedy. In saying this, we wish not to put the blame on the victim but rather to point out that not every tragedy should result in a lawsuit.

There are, however, those cases where the law supports the victim and the victim’s family members. There are a number of common cases in which a lawyer with experience litigating personal injury and wrongful death cases can help after such a tragedy.

In the state of Arizona, one of the more common and preventable types of drowning involve children that go to neighborhood pools where often the lack of supervision or proper security lead to a tragic outcome.

Pools open to the public that lack a well-trained lifeguard, or any lifeguard in some cases, also lead to otherwise preventable tragedies.

Another common occurrence happens when people drink on boats and are then involved in accidents in which the lack of life jackets on the boat may lead to a drowning. In many of these types of boating accidents that lead to someone drowning, family members have the right to file a legal claim for damages.

Though a person may have a right to take legal action does not mean that it is in the best interest of every family. Very often families are torn as to what should be done after such a tragedy. It is often difficult for family members to even decide whether to consult with a lawyer. As experienced Arizona swimming pool accident attorneys, we feel that the family should at the very least sit down with a lawyer who can explain all their available legal options so that they can make an informed decision. We offer a no cost consultation for families that are in difficult situations after a Tucson drowning accident, and will help advise on the best course of legal action in their particular case.
