Arnold & Itkin LLP recently filed a case on behalf of a family whose 17-year-old relative tragically drowned while celebrating at Lake Oconee, a popular camping and swimming location. The young man was swimming when he disappeared beneath the surface of the water. Tragically, by the time he was able to be pulled from the water, it was too late.
Lake Oconee is private property, and its managers and owners must ensure a safe environment for everyone that visits the recreational area. If adequate water safety practices were in place, it is likely that this terrible accident could have been prevented. If companies desire to charge the public to use facilities that they own, they must invest the money required to protect the safety of all. The premises liability attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP look forward to representing this family and helping them through this terrible experience.
The case was filed in Fulton County, Georgia.
