Drowning accidents are responsible for close to 3,000 deaths every year in the United States, with the majority of victims being children. In fact, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death among children between the ages of 1 and 4, second only to auto accidents. Even a near-drowning accident can cause significant brain damage that affects a child far into the future.
Most drowning accidents are preventable and can be traced back to some form of negligence. Public swimming pools, water parks, and other facilities are obligated to abide by safety laws in order to prevent drowning accidents. If a pool owner or negligent lifeguard fails to meet these important safety standards and your loved one drowns as a result, our experienced drowning accident lawyers at CSCS can help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.
