A day at the beach or a trip to the water park always promises relaxing fun. Sometimes such outings turn horrifying, however, because of a drowning accident. After the initial shock wears off, loved ones often ask themselves how such a thing could happen. Often, the answer is that negligence by the operator or owner of the attraction caused the drowning. If this turns out to be the case, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries and losses.

Asking the right questions after a drowning
Drowning accidents can occur at amusement parks, at the lake, in swimming pools or wherever people go in the water. Wherever the accident occurred, getting specific information about what happened — and getting that information quickly — is key. Our firm starts right away so that witnesses’ memories remain fresh and physical evidence remains intact:
- Was the pool unsupervised?
- Were warning signs posted?
- Was the deck too slippery?
- Was the lifeguard properly trained?
- Was the water clear?
- Was the lifeguard distracted, and if so, why?
We ask questions such as these and many more to learn the specifics of your case and seek the maximum compensation possible.
We know that no amount of money can truly compensate you for the death of your loved one. However, money takes away some of the anxiety and uncertainty that are only natural as you face a very different future.
Our attorneys work hard to obtain compensation for the lost income, companionship, consortium, help and advice you would have received had your spouse, parent or child not died in a drowning accident.
