Drowning Accidents

 

Ocean Springs Drowning Accident Lawyer

 

OCEAN SPRINGS PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY SERVING GULFPORT, LONG BEACH, BILOXI AND PASCAGOULA

 

The Center for Disease Control reports that drowning is the seventh leading cause of accidental death in America, but the second leading cause in children under 15. Many survive drowning accidents, but still suffer traumatic brain injuries, as well as other physical damages, that change their lives forever. These accidents are often the result of supervision which has failed its duty, or negligence in the form of faulty drains, gates or other dangers.

Property owners of pools are required by law to have a four-sided fence a minimum of five feet high, and with gates that prevent direct access, surrounding their pool. Lifeguards at times fail to pay the proper attention to their surroundings, allowing for drowning accidents to needlessly occur. There are additional factors of negligence in a drowning accident that can be discovered by a knowledgeable legal team. While no amount of monetary damages can compensate for the loss or significant injuries of a loved one, there are drowning incidents which warrant the pursuit of criminal actions against negligent parties. If you or a loved one has had a drowning accident, it is imperative that you contact an Ocean Springs personal injury attorney at once to get competent legal help for your case.
