Drowning Accidents in Arizona
Drownings lead to thousands of
deaths every year. Unfortunately, the majority of the people who drown are children.
In fact, drowning is one of leading causes of death in children under
the age of 14. When children are lucky enough to survive a drowning, they
often suffer from a number of debilitating and life-threatening injuries,
the most common of which are
brain injuries. It's no surprise that brain injuries often lead to developmental
disabilities, impaired cognitive skills, and many other serious and sometimes
irreversible medical conditions.
A fatal or catastrophic drowning can happen anywhere, even in the victim's
own backyard. But when a drowning occurs in a public lake/ocean, pool,
or water park as a result of
negligence or lack of supervision, the lifeguard on duty or the owner of the facility
can be held accountable for the accident. In addition, the owner of the
pool or facility can also be held liable for failing to install and enforce
safety rules and regulations.
Adults and children who drown as a result of another person's negligence
are entitled to
financial compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. If a person
dies as a result of a drowning caused by negligence, that person's
family is also entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible
party. Hiring a lawyer who has extensive experience in handling drowning
cases will greatly increase your chances of winning your case and recovering
damages for your pain and suffering, psychological anguish, medical bills,
rehabilitative expenses, adaptive equipment, lost wages, financial hardship,
decreased quality of life, and funeral expenses (if applicable).
