DROWNING / NEAR DROWNING ACCIDENTS
Were you or a loved one involved in a drowning or near drowning accident?
Every year in the United States, there are more than 3,000 drowning victims, making it the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury death in the country.
In the Virginia Beach area alone, there are over X drownings each year–many of these people are families vactioning from out of town.
Accidental drowning is a devastating event, and while the legal ramifications are not the most important element when experiencing this tragedy, it is important to understand your rights as the surviving family members.
Who Might Be At Fault?
There are many parties that may be at fault for a drowning case. While sometimes the victim themselves may share the blame, property owners may still be responsible. It’s best to have an honest discussion with a personal injury attorney to help determine fault.
