Helping Families Affected by Drowning Fight for the Justice They Deserve

Dallas Drowning Lawyers

We Demand Answers After Drowning, Near-Drowning & Pool Accidents

Every day, about 10 people lose their lives in drowning accidents, making unintentional drowning the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 20% of these victims are children aged 14 and younger.

Nonfatal Drowning Injuries

Swimming pool and other water accidents are not always fatal. Near-drownings can cause serious injuries that affect a victim and his or her family in many ways, far worse than other types of accidents. According to the CDC, half of all near-drowning victims who receive emergency treatment require hospitalization, as opposed to only 6% of people who require hospitalization for all unintentional injuries.

The consequences of near-drowning can include:

  • Brain damage
  • Memory problems
  • Learning disabilities
  • Permanent loss of basic functioning (permanent vegetative state)

Determining Liability in a Dallas Drowning Accident

It’s a difficult thing to face, but understanding the cause of a drowning or near-drowning is an essential part of holding at-fault parties accountable. This can help with medical expenses and can provide much-needed financial stability in difficult times. It also increases awareness of the importance of water safety and holds manufacturers, building owners, and others responsible for carelessness or recklessness.

Our Dallas drowning attorneys believe in improving conditions for future generations, to prevent similar situations from affecting more innocent people. We're a Dallas personal injury law firm that believes in seeing that justice served after tragedies. We fight day in and day out to help people who have been injured or have lost loved ones, and we do it because we care.

The parties that should have protected your loved one must be held accountable. Our team demands the answers our clients deserve, no matter what. Call (888) 493-1629 to learn more.
