Regarding Drowning Accident Claims

Heat and swimming or water sports go together. Pools and beaches are a source of a great deal of family fun and good exercise. Children seem especially drawn to the water and not just when it's hot. This is why all in ground pools need to be fully fenced and gated to prevent unsupervised children from having easy access to what has proven to be a grave danger. Children are not the only ones at risk of drowning and near-drowning accidents. If you have lost a loved one, or have been injured in a near-drowning accident it is vital that you consult a Lafayette injury attorney.

Drowning Accident Lawyer in Lafayette

Pools when not properly designed, constructed or maintained can be very dangerous places to play and exercise. Many pool accidents happen because of defective or missing drain covers which can entrap a swimmer. Electrocutions which lead to drowning can occur when the lighting electrical system is wired wrongly or malfunctions so the water becomes electrified. If a swimmer gets in trouble and lifeguard fails to notice or respond in a prompt fashion the consequences can be fatal. Traumatic brain injuries or loss of life are often the tragic result in pool accident cases.

The fence or gate around a hotel or motel or apartment pool is not secure allowing children to access to the water. The owner or operator may be held responsible in any of these situations.
