If your loved one suffered serious injuries and died as a result of a drowning accident, you and your family are likely experiencing feelings of devastation and hopelessness. At Athens Injury Law, we do not want you to feel that your situation is hopeless or that you are alone.
Our compassionate lawyers understand the magnitude of this situation. We will work with you to explore all your available legal options, and we will strive to help you obtain financial compensation and justice. Holding the responsible party accountable for this tragedy is our highest priority.
Proving Fault In A Drowning Accident
No matter the cause of the accident, our legal team is committed to helping you every step of the way through the legal process. With over 50 years of combined legal experience, we have advocated for countless injury victims and their families who have been hurt by negligent behavior.
We know what to look for and how to effectively investigate these accidents to prove who was at fault, as well as the exact cause of the accident. For example, lack of safety measures, lack of a lifeguard or improper lifeguard training, and damaged gates are a few of the most common factors in drowning incidents.
Who Can Be Held Liable For A Drowning Accident?
Depending on the circumstances, we may identify the following parties as responsible for a drowning accident:
- The county or city
- A water park owner
- A private homeowner
- A hotel or motel owner
- An apartment complex owner
In many cases, drowning accidents are a premises liability matter. They stem from the idea that the owners of a property with a pool have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe and that all reasonable steps are taken to minimize risks of accidents and drowning.
