Drowning and Swimming Injuries
It only takes a moment for swimming or boating to turn to tragedy. If a child or adult is underwater too long, the lack of oxygen can lead to serious brain damage. Memory, cognitive function and motor function may be affected. Additionally, diving or slip-and-fall accidents can lead to spinal damage, including paraplegia and quadriplegia.
Whether at a pool, a lake or at the beach, it is vital that children are supervised by a responsible adult. Without supervision, a child is at risk of serious injuries or even death from drowning. Our lawyers can help hold the negligent parties accountable for you or your child’s injuries.
Alcohol-Induced Swimming Injuries
If alcohol is being served at a party and the host fails to stop an inebriated individual from leaving the party or acting in a way that would harm others, the host may be held liable. This is known as social host liability. We can help you determine if alcohol was a factor in your accident.
