Drowning Accidents in Georgia

One of the most relaxing and rejuvenating things on a hot summer day is a refreshing dip in the pool. When something goes wrong though, that relaxation can melt away into terror and anxiety. Pools may not seem dangerous, but consider that six Americans drown in a swimming pool every day and that unintentional drowning are the most common cause of death for children under 14. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a swimming pool accident, please call our offices and speak with a skilled Atlanta accident attorney as soon as possible.

There are many reasons drowning accidents can occur, including poor flooring near a pool, someone failing to properly monitor a child near a pool and lifeguard negligence. Depending on the specifics of your situation, your Atlanta accident lawyer will need to identify the proper person responsible for your suffering and then help you gather evidence to file suit against that party.

Children are the most common drowning victims and it is often due to inadequate supervision. Whether the person responsible was a camp counselor, a nanny, a baby sitter or a day care employee, children need to be carefully watched whenever a pool or other body of water is near. When neglect results in injuries from near-drownings or in death, the person who failed to properly supervise the child can be held at fault. An Atlanta accident attorney can help you prove in court that the incident never would have happened if the child was being properly cared for.

While financial compensation may not be your biggest concern after your child has been injured or killed, it is important to remember that the damages you collect will not only help you move beyond the accident by allowing you to pay off the medical expenses and/or funeral expenses, but they may also help you send a message. When you file a suit with your Atlanta accident lawyer, you are letting child caretakers everywhere know just how important it is that they do their job as well as possible. You may even help prevent this tragedy from befalling another family.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a near-drowning or has died in a drowning accident, please call our offices and schedule a free consultation with a top Atlanta accident attorney.
