Drowning Accidents in Hartford
Seek Compensation for the Loss of a Loved One
More than 3,000 people die each year in the United States from drowning accidents that can be linked to someone else’s negligence. Of those deaths, the majority were children under the age of 14. In some rare cases, people who inhaled a great amount of water do not actually drown but still suffer from a serious complication known as submersion injuries. The consequences of these injuries can include:
- Brain damage
- Spinal and neck damage
- Nerve damage
- Damaged tissue due to lack of oxygen
If your loved one was injured or suffered a wrongful death in a drowning accident, you may be able to receive compensation to help cover medical costs or funeral expenses. Contact a Hartford personal injury lawyer from Carlson & Dumeer, LLC today to learn your legal options.
Negligence Creates Real Danger Around Swimming Sites
Many studies have been conducted to determine who is most at risk for drowning accidents and how best to prevent them. Young children and the elderly were found to be at increased risk due to their general frailty. Additionally, small children are curious by nature and can fall into the water while exploring.
Forms of negligence that further increase the danger to people around waterfronts include:
- Lack of security or fences
- Inattentive lifeguard staff
- No supervision provided whatsoever
- No warning signs posted
- Toys left near the edge of the water
In boating and recreational water activities, lack of experience in swimming and lifesaving skills, or failing to wear life jackets, can also cause drowning fatalities. Adults are also susceptible to drowning accidents, especially when alcohol and medical disorders are involved.
