Drowning Accident Attorneys in NYC

It has been estimated that drowning accidents are the fourth leading cause of accidental death in the United States and the second leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 15. While many of these unfortunate events are accidents, many of them are also caused by the negligence of one or more individuals at the scene. In such cases, it is possible for the families of the drowning victims to pursue legal action in order to recover compensation for their loss.

When concerning child victims, landowners may also be held liable for attractive nuisances which provoked the child to approach and be injured. This offense would also apply to trespassing children and can include both lakes and pools on the landowner’s property. Lastly, acts of willful or wanton misconduct involve more than just negligence and are decisions of behavior any reasonable person would consider endangering to a visitor or child.

If the filing party and his or her legal counsel can prove any of these offenses, he or she stands to recover compensation for the damages caused by the accident and the losses he or she incurred because of it. Additionally, action can be taken against owners of public water attractions for failing to implement proper supervision or the lack of a lifeguard. The best way to determine whether or not a drowning accident merits a lawsuit is to consult a New York City personal injury lawyer at our office.
