Drownings

It is an unfortunate fact that drowning accidents are responsible for the injuries and deaths of many Americans each year. At Law Office of Neil Flit, we provide legal help to individuals who have been victimized in such accidents, by seeking compensation on their behalf from the entity or entities responsible. In the event that you have suffered injury in a near-drowning accident, or have lost a loved one due to drowning, contact an Atlanta personal injury lawyer at our firm immediately, and we will begin working towards securing the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

The most frequent victims of drowning accidents are children, with such accidents being the second highest cause of death in the U.S. for those under the age of 14. Oftentimes, drownings occur due to negligence on the part of the owner or operator of a pool or other swimming area, and this negligence can be manifested as:

  • Poor/no maintenance of the pool or pool area
  • Inadequate safety or warning signage
  • Lack of formal supervision (such as lifeguards)
  • Dangerous premises design (such as excessively slippery surfaces or lack of safety fencing

If negligence is the cause of a drowning accident, those who own or operate the swimming area may be held fully financially responsible for the injuries or deaths that occur as a result.

Legal Representation for Drowning Accident Victims

Being injured in a drowning accident, or losing a family member due to drowning, can be a devastating experience that affects you and your family for the rest of your lives. While no amount of money can replace the person that was lost, or make up for the injuries you have suffered, some compensation can serve to eliminate any financial impact the injuries or death may have caused. In hiring an attorney, you give yourself a much stronger chance of receiving this compensation, and in some way facilitating the healing process.

Contact an Atlanta Drowning Accident Lawyer if you have been injured in a near-drowning, or have lost a loved in a drowning accident.
