Who Was Responsible For The Drowning?
In many cases, drowning deaths could have been avoided. Here are some examples of negligence that can lead to tragedy:
- Reckless boat operation
- Boating while intoxicated
- Failure by a property owner to install a locking fence around a pool
- Lack of warnings
- Lifeguard inattention
- Lack of safety training
- Failure to provide basic safety equipment such as shepherd’s hook or life preserver
If you have suffered a death in the family, you need time to grieve. However, time is not on the side of the family when a wrongful death occurs. Property owners can make repairs to correct dangerous conditions. Broken fences can be repaired, and warning signs can appear where none existed in the past. Witnesses’ memories can fade.
To hold the negligent parties accountable, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after the accident. Our attorneys will take immediate steps to secure evidence and protect the rights of your family.
