Dallas Drowning Accidents

Helping the Families Affected by Drowning Fight for the Justice They Deserve

Dallas Drowning Lawyers

Demand Answers for Grieving Families After Drowning, Near-Drowning & Swimming 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.

It’s been over 15 years since Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin joined forces to create Arnold & Itkin, which is now known as one of the top trial firms in the country. We’ve recovered billions of dollars for our injured clients, with over $1 billion in settlements and verdicts in 2019 alone. These recoveries are a direct result of our dedication to helping others—because we care enough to put in the time and effort to see justice served for those who have experienced the worst situations in their lives.

Drowning and near-drowning accidents are important areas of focus for our team. We help victims and families of victims in incidents involving:

  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Cruise ship drownings
  • Offshore accidents and injuries
  • Lifeguard negligence
  • Defective pool drains or covers
  • Defective pool fencing or gates

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% 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 believe in seeing justice served for those who were not saved. We fight day in and day out to help people who have been injured or have lost loved ones in these tragedies, and we do it because we care. If you’re looking for legal counsel from a team who will be there for you every single step of the way, you’ll find it at Arnold & Itkin.

The parties that could've protected your loved one should be held accountable. Our team will demand the answers you and your loved ones deserve, no matter what. Call us now for a free consultation at (888) 493-1629.
