Common causes of drowning accidents
Drowning accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of drowning accidents involving the reckless or negligent actions of someone else, including:
- Reckless behavior by fellow swimmers
- Slip and fall accidents near swimming pools
- Unmarked hazards near swimming pools or other swimming areas
- Unsupervised swimming pools
- Inexperienced lifeguards
- Unsecured swimming areas (including no fencing or unlocked gates around a swimming pool)
If you believe your loved one drowned because of someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, that person should be held accountable for their actions. That’s why you need our legal team on your side.
