Arizona Drowning Accident Claims

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'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.

Drowning Accidents: Who's to Blame?

It is the most difficult part of a case to determine and prove fault following a drowning accident. You may believe a certain party should be held accountable, but you must have strong evidence and laws to support this belief. A skilled attorney can be of great assistance to you during this time. Through careful investigation, a lawyer can both identify at-fault parties and prove their liability as well.

The following can be at-fault for a drowning accident:

  • Recreational Centers
  • Hotels
  • Neighborhood Associations
  • Swim Management Companies
  • Private Premises Owners
  • Non-Profit Organizations

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).
